BCCI says no to DRS for England series next month

London: India`s opposition to the Decision Review System continues with the BCCI refusing to allow its usage in next month`s four-Test cricket series against England.

According to `The Daily Telegraph`, "The Board for Cricket Control in India sent official notification to the England and Wales Cricket Board that it does not want the system to be used in the series (in July)."

Consent of both the Boards is required for the system to be used in a series.

Top Indian players such as Sachin Tendulkar and skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni have been vocal critics of the DRS but English players like spin spearhead Graeme Swann have backed the use of technology.

"The reason India do not want it is because it will favour our bowlers," said John Emburey, the former England off-spinner.
