Indian Legend Sachin Tendulkar on Friday said that he supported the use of technology in international cricket as long as it is implemented uniformly across the world. 

From an individual point of view I can definitely say that we can’t have bits and pieces in different, different parts of the world. One part of the world is using Snickometer. The other part of the world is Hot Spot. Somewhere else we are using something else. It’s got to be standardised,” Tendulkar said. 

Incidentally, most of the India’s senior players, barring captain MS Dhoni, have supported the DRS despite its inconsistent nature. Even N Srinivasan hadn’t supported the technology in the past saying that resorting to referrals was just a gamble. 

But Sachin Tendulkar has recognized that the technology could never be perfect, but it should be consistent. 

He quoted:

Why should we settle for only 50% result? Why not get as close to 100%? It is impossible to get 100% right. There will be some errors here and there. It really does not matter if Zimbawe and Bangladesh are playing or England and Australia are playing. An international match is an international match. It is unfair on lesser teams who do not have the full package. We can definitely use technology as long as it is standardised.”
