No lbw reviews in England-India series

There will be no reviews of lbw decisions during the forthcoming England-India Test and one-day series, the International Cricket Council (ICC) announced Wednesday.
Indian concerns over the reliability of ball-tracking technology meant the ICC was unable to get adopt universal adoption of the full decision review system (DRS) for all international matches at a recent meeting. Now, for the four-Test and five-match one-day series between England and India, there will be no HawkEye predictive tracking system for lbws. However, ‘Hot Spot’ imaging technology and stump microphone audio will be able to assist the on-field umpires with caught decisions.
India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, speaking ahead of the first Test which starts at Lord’s here Thursday, told reporters on Wednesday: “We are not 100 percent convinced on the tracking system and the (measurement of) bounce. “We are quite happy with the ‘Hot Spot’.”
