Kolkata, June 21 (IANS) The Indian cricket board's interim chief Jagmohan Dalmiya will represent it at the annual conference of the International Cricket Council in London June 25.

Newly-appointed secretary Sanjay Patel will attend the CEOs meeting, Dalmiya said here.

"I shall attend the annual conference and the IDI board meeting. Patel will attend the CEO meeting," he said, ending weeks of speculation on who would represent the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) at the ICC meeting.

The IDI or ICC Development (International) Limited, is the commercial arm of the ICC.

On whether BCCI president N. Srinivasan would also fly down to London to attend meetings of ICC sub-committees of which he is member, Dalmiya replied: "I am not aware about that."

Asked about BCCI's stand on DRS at the ICC annual conference, Dalmiya said: "We will take a decision once we reach there."

"We want cooperation from ICC and its other members on DRS and also for cleansing cricket," he said.

India is the only country which has so far not accepted th DRS technology in cricket. While every country uses DRS in bilateral Test series, India refuses to employ it for the matches it plays.
