DRS was one of many main speaking factors in the course of the recently-concluded Border-Gavaskar Trophy, aside from the pitches. Speaking at the India Today Conclave, batting nice Sachin Tendulkar expressed his disappointment over the umpire’s name within the present DRS format.

Then why are they going again to the choice of the on-field umpire? If you’ve got determined to go that route (with know-how), then go that route. But what we’re making an attempt to do is mixing each issues and I disagree,” stated Tendulkar.
Tendulkar additional shared his views on the identical, saying that he would’ve cherished taking DRS throughout his enjoying days.
“Quite a couple of, I could not rely them on my fingers for certain (when requested what number of instances he would’ve referred to DRS if it existed throughout his enjoying days). I might have cherished it, with none doubt. Some choices go in your favour, some go in opposition to you as effectively,” he added.
Tendulkar additional instructed that identical to people, know-how too is not infallible, including that the umpires have been making enormous blunders even earlier than the introduction of the DRS.
“We’re solely pointing fingers at know-how, but it surely’s not fool-proof and so are people. Before DRS, there have been blatant errors made and due to these errors and since a 3rd particular person was deciding the destiny, matches have been both misplaced or received,” he signed off.
