No UDRS during India vs West Indies series

The controversial Umpire Decision Review System will not be in place in the forthcoming series between India and the West Indies after the BCCI has convinced its Caribbean counterparts against the use of technology during the entire tour.

The implementation of UDRS in a bilateral series is the prerogative of the home board but the powerful BCCI, who has opposed the system from the onset, has forced the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) to do away with it in the series, which starts with a T20 International on Saturday.

A WICB spokesperson confirmed that UDRS will not be used in the one-off Twenty20 match, five ODIs or for that matter in the three upcoming Test matches.

Incidentally, UDRS was used when Pakistan toured the Caribbean recently.

India has been a staunch critic of UDRS ever since Sachin Tendulkar went public with his disapproval of the system in Sri Lanka a couple of years ago.
