Rajkot: The much talked about Decision Review System made its debut in India as the hometeam took on England in the first Test at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot on Wednesday.

On the day when Donald Trump defeated Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton became the new US President, BCCI, after years of opposition to the system, finally decided to use DRS on a trial basis, following improvements in the technology, for the England series.

 

While England could not make good use of DRS in the first session on day one of the first Test, India benefited as first, Alastair Cook did not review the LBW decision, and then, Haseeb Hameed reviewed a decision where he was adjudged out LBW.

The replays showed that the ball that hit Cook’s pads was missing the leg-stump and the England skipper, who was dropped twice by Ajinkya Rahane and Virat Kohli, could have prolonged his stay in the middle. In Hameed’s case, although R Ashwin came from around the wicket, the ball was pitching in line and would have hit the off-stump.
