KOLKATA, Sept 29: India�s Test captain Virat Kohli today said the team has had discussions on the contentious Decision Review System (DRS) and looks forward to the technology�s introduction in the future.

�We have had discussions on this. Certainly we will look to introduce it in future. We won�t take decisions too hard because we, in the first place, decided that we will not use DRS,� Kohli said on the eve of their second Test against New Zealand at the Eden Gardens.

The DRS debate had in the past found the BCCI on the opposite side of the cricketing world in general with the richest board always sticking to its original stance that it would continue to oppose the technology as �it is not foolproof�.

However, Board president Anurag Thakur had last month said that they were willing to accept DRS without the use of Hawk Eye.

When asked about the recent dubious decisions that went against India vis-a-vis the absence of DRS, Kohli said, �Those things I can�t say yes or no sitting here. We have discussed. We have had meetings about it. There are some areas that can be debated, especially the ball tracking and Hawk Eye. It can be discussed or debated upon.�

�For us to say that umpires made an error and it�s going against us is not logical. There�s no room for excuses. Once it�s in place and up and running then we can think of the grey areas. We definitely need to think about it. But I can�t make a decision sitting here right now. It�s a good point.�

In the Kanpur Test, New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson went after a wide delivery from Ravindra Jadeja and managed a faint touch en route to wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha, but the umpire did not hear the edge and remained unmoved.

Among India�s concerns would be Kohli�s recent run of form as he has scored only 78 from five innings, including 9 and 18 in the last Test, but the skipper said it�s about giving 100 per cent at the practice sessions. � PTI
