Still I don't like DRS, says MS Dhoni

Birmingham, June 23: India might have used the Decision Review System (DRS) to their advantage in the Champions Trophy 2013, but captain MS Dhoni still does not like the referral system.

India have a 100 per cent record in the tournament using DRS. They won 3 umpiring verdicts. BCCI has been opposing the system and will do the same again at the ICC Annual Conference this week.

"You'll have to wait and watch and see. Still I don't like it (DRS). Two wickets gone, one of Kevin Pietersen, the other of Mahela Jayawardene, so there's no good reason why I should like it," said Dhoni.

"But it's there to take the blunders away from the game, something like a big inside edge goes on to the bat, the batsman has an advantage and the same. So we'll have to wait and watch how it goes," he added.

Dhoni, who bowled four overs against Sri Lanka in the semi-finals, had got the wicket of Jayawardene LBW but the batsman got the decision reversed with DRS. Dhoni had lost out another wicket in 2011 in a Test against Pietersen.

India will play England today in the Champions Trophy final at Edgbaston.
