Virat Kohli not a fan of DRS

New Delhi, Aug 8: India batsman Virat Kohli has admitted that he is not a fan of the Decision Review System (DRS) and he prefers to be given out by the on-field umpires even if they are not right.

Kohli, who was at an event here on Wednesday (August 7), was quoted as saying that he does not like DRS. He feels technology is not 100 per cent accurate.

BCCI has been opposing DRS strongly and in the ongoing Ashes Test series, there have been controversial decisions.

Asked if India was vindicated on resisting the Decision Review System (DRS) seeing the spate of controveries in the Ashes, Kohli was quoted as saying "IANS" news agency: "Definitely, you have seen how many decisions have gone wrong because of technology, which is not 100 percent fool-proof yet. Lot of people are in favour of DRS and many do not like it.

"But I would rather be given out by an umpire and just walk away in disappointment rather than having reviews and seeing that I am not out and still being given out. That disturbs a player mentally much more than an umpire giving a normal decision."
