Tremlett can't dig why India opposes DRS

London, Jun 14: England pacer Chris Tremlett is bewildered by India''s staunch opposition to the Decision Review System as he feels the innovation is "very accurate and fair" and should have been used in next month''s Test series between the two sides.

The BCCI has refused to accept the use of DRS, which allows teams to make two incorrect challenges to an on-field umpire''s decision, in next month''s Test series and Tremlett can''t understand why as the ICC recommends its usage in all big matches.

"I am a fan of the system. If the technology is there it should be used," Tremlett said.

"Who knows why they (India) don''t want it involved? There have been a few decisions that have been rightly overturned and as a bowler you want those decisions given out. It''s a fair way of doing things. I''m fully in agreement with it," he added.

"It''s something that we like to use and it should be used in every Test if the technology is there and it''s a shame that they don''t want DRS involved in the India series."

Tremlett said the BCCI and some senior Indian players'' argument that the system is not accurate enough does not hold much ground as technology has helped cut down umpiring errors.

"It is very accurate. Sometimes there is a lot of noise around a Test match and an umpire might not hear a fine nick so it''s an important thing to have.

"It has been a successful thing over the last six months," he said.

Speaking about the series next month, Tremlett said England are confident about upstaging the world number one India.

"There''s no reason why we can''t win that series against India. This side is going from strength to strength and we''re on a good winning streak at the moment.

"I''m fully confident that we can beat any side. We had success against Australia but the next step is to beat the number one side in the world. If we can beat them convincingly then we will deserve to be number one," he added.
