No DRS for India-Eng series


Share post:


New Delhi: With the BCCI not happy with the Hot Spot technology after controversies surrounding it in India’s recent tour of England, the upcoming ODI series between the two countries will be played without the use of Decision Review System.

Hot Spot was made mandatory in the use of DRS while ball-tracking technology was made optional during India’s full tour of England in July-August after a compromise was reached between the BCCI the ICC.

“The DRS will not be used during the ODI and T20 International Series between India and England, to be played from 14 October 2011 to 29 October 2011,” BCCI Secretary Sanjay Jagdale said in a press release.

Interestingly, the ICC also issued a release, saying that the DRS will not be used in the India-England ODI series as the equipment will not be made available by the suppliers.

“The Decision Review System (DRS) will not be used during the forthcoming One Day International series between India and England following a decision by the developers and suppliers of Hotspot not to make their infra-red cameras available for the five-match series,” the ICC release said. (PTI)
