Fletcher backs BCCI 's decision

Sydney, Jan 4: Coach Duncan Fletcher has extended his support to BCCI's rejection of the use of the Decision Review system technology on the tour of Australia.

Earlier Fletcher in his book, "Behind the shades" had expressed his support for the introduction of technology, instead of backing BCCI's decision to opt against the DRS in the series.

When asked about reports of Aussie media's hypocrisy claims, he played a straight bat and was reluctant to speak as India capitulated on Day 1 of the second Test at Sydney.

“I think it"s important, at this stage, I"ve got to follow the BCCI. And they"re not very supportive of it at this stage. You can understand it [as] some of the measures they"ve put in place seem to be doubtful on certain occasions and I support the BCCI at this stage in their policy," Fletcher said.

Though the first Test witnessed a few incorrect umpiring decisions, a contrast of what happened in Melbourne, umpires enjoyed a relatively drama-free day , as it remains a talking point in the series.
