New Delhi:

The Board of Control for Cricket in India on Friday, confirmed that the Decision Review System (DRS) will not be used for the ODI and T20 series between India and England which begins on October 14 at Hyderabad.

The decision to not implement DRS for the 5 ODI matches and a T20 match closely follows a confirmation from Warren Brennan, the chief executive of the company behind the technology (BBG Sports), that Hot Spot will not be used in the series. Brennan had told Espncricinfo that Hot Spot's performance during India's tour of England was disappointing and said he believed "it did not have BCCI's support" for the technology following that series.

The BCCI has had reservations about Hot Spot and DRS before although it has previously clarified favouring the use of technology, has recommended certain changes. England's tour to India however, will not have the referral system and the decision of the on-field umpires will have to be relied on.
