India has again rejected the use of the umpire decision review system during this summer's Test series against England, as senior players still seem unconvinced about its efficacy.
According to The Telegraph, the Board for Cricket Control in India (BCCI) has sent an official notification to the England and Wales Cricket Board that it does not want the system to be used during the four-Test series.
Under International Cricket Council regulations the system can only be used with the consent of both boards.
Senior Indian cricket team players, including Sachin Tendulkar and M S Dhoni, have said that they do not trust the technology.
The Indian team's refusal to accept the DRS system could affect the performance of England oof-spinner Graeme Swann, who has acknowledged that during last winter's Ashes tour the benefit he has gained from the technology.
In the past, traditional finger spinners would have been lucky to get one lbw decision in every 20 appeals. Now with the DRS system consistently proving umpires incorrect when giving not-out decisions, that ratio has changed to about one in five.
