BCCI agrees to test DRS from England Test Series

BCCI ended its long-standing opposition to the Decision Review System (DRS), and agreed to its usage on a trial basis during India’s home Test series against England starting next month.
●    The BCCI and India’s limited-overs skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni have long opposed the system. 
●    But the Board’s stance has softened after Test captain Virat Kohli and coach Anil Kumble expressed their openness to experiment with the technology.
●    India last played a Test series using DRS in 2008 against Sri Lanka.
●    The Board said that it was “satisfied” that most of the concerns and suggestions that were expressed by it over a period of time were “addressed to a significant extent“.
●    The Board said additional cameras have been installed so that there is “redundancy and also provide 100 per cent reliable spin vision for DRS”.
