In England Tests India opposes umpire decision review

According to the ICC regulations, the UDRS can be used in a series only with the consent of the boards. In the recent past, the UDRS has faced opposition from Indian cricketers, including Sachin Tendulkar and captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who feel the know-how cannot be trusted beyond limits.

The Indian cricket board has reportedly sent an official notification to the England and Wales Cricket Board, opposing the use of the Umpire Decision Review Process (UDRS) in the upcoming Check series between the nations.

India will play Tests against England beginning July 21.

Dhoni has been vocal in opposing the UDRS chiefly after Ian Bell was given not out in the work of a World Cup match in Banglore.

In May the ICC's cricket committee recommended the use of UDRS in all forms of the game.

"There are moves for this to be implemented at the board�s annual meeting later in June but convincing India will be hard," said a document in the Every day Telegraph.

Former England off-spinner John Emburey said the reason India does not require the UDRS is that it "will favour our bowlers".

"It is a blow for Graeme Swann, who acknowledged in the work of last winter's Ashes tour the benefit he's gained from the know-how. Of his 138 wickets, 29.71% have been lbw, the second highest proportion of any bowler in Check history," the document said.

"It (DRS) has been giant for spinners because they are now getting wickets against batsmen playing on the front foot coming forward. It is a gigantic advantage to the spinner. The process has shown balls would go on to hit the stumps and umpires have now got it in their minds that they can now give batsmen out," Emburey was quoted as saying.

Emburey also said what UDRS has done is that it's forced the batsmen to play with the bat than hide behind the pads. This, in turn, gives the bowler more chances of edges and catches as the batsmen are forced to face the bowl.
