The Umpire Decision Review System in cricket was put in place by the International Cricket Council to reduce the blunders made by on-field umpires. India and Sri Lanka were the first teams to play in a match with the DRS in place.

Ever since its inception, the system has drawn praises and criticism in equal measure. India is the only country which is still not convinced with the system and have been sceptical about using it after their miserable results in the first attempt against Sri Lanka, in 2008.
