London, Jun 15: Star England spinner Graeme Swann has slammed India for opposing the Decision Review System in the upcoming Test series, saying that calling the innovation inaccurate is merely an excuse.
"I think it is a shame we are not going to use it because it is a very positive thing that has been introduced in the game. I think India do trust the technology. You could make that excuse but I think it's proved to be pretty accurate. It saves as many batsmen as it sends to the stocks," Swann said.
"I don't know if it's a distrust of technology or a bit of kidology (bluffing or deception) on their part. If they don't want to do it, fair enough," he said.
Swann said the use of DRS over the years has improved the accuracy in the decision making by umpires. PTI
