No 'Hot Spot' for 2011 World Cup

New Delhi: Hot Spot will not be part of the Decision Review System (DRS) to be used during the 2011 ICC World Cup as the supplier of the technology was "not willing" to provide the cameras, according to an ICC spokesman.

In October 2010, the ICC had announced that the Hot Spot cameras would be used in the semi-finals and final of the World Cup, to be held in India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh from February 19 to April 2.

The Hot Spot is not an essential element of the UDRS paraphernalia but is supposed to be one of the more accurate indications of the point of contact between ball and object. Sachin Tendulkar, a vocal critics of the UDRS, has in the past given his thumbs-up to the Hot Spot technology.
