A steadfast critic of the innovation aimed at curbing umpiring errors by using technology, India have finally agreed to try DRS, on a trial basis, in the five-match series against England.
Particularly sceptical of the accuracy of the ball-tracking element of the system, the Indian team will be embracing a system they dumped after bitter experience in a 2008 series in Sri Lanka.
“It’s a completely a new concept for all of us. We’ve been discussing it from last series (against New Zealand) and we have some plans,” Rahane said. Fielding captains usually get advice from the bowler and wicketkeeper before challenging an umpiring decision.
“As a batsman, you are always involved in the game. You have to see where the ball is going, you have to convey the message to your partner and you have to be sure all the time.”
The 28-year-old said the target was to maintain India’s formidable home record which has lifted them top of the test rankings.
