'Have no control over Hawk-Eye,' broadcasters clarify

'Hawk-Eye is an independent service provider, approved by the ICC,' South African broadcasters SuperSport said

Broadcaster SuperSport has clarified its stance on the entire DRS controversy that shook the Cape Town Test between India and South Africa. The broadcasters say that they have o control over the functioning of Hawk-Eye technology, which has been approved by the ICC and has been in use for years.

"SuperSport notes comments made by certain members of the Indian cricket team," it told news agency AFP.

"Hawk-Eye is an independent service provider, approved by the ICC and their technology has been accepted for many years as an integral part of DRS.

"SuperSport does not have any control over the Hawk-Eye technology."

This comes after a few members of the Indian team, including skipper Virat Kohli had made claims that the broadcasters were in some way meddling with the technology. 

Kohli and his team were let off with a warning after Dean Elgar's LBW decision was overturned, much to the surprise of the on-field umpire Marias Erasmus as well.

Elgar was dismissed a few overs later but South Africa went on to win the match and clinch the series 2-1.
