Mumbai: Former ICC Elite Panel umpire, Srinivas Venkataraghavan today gave a big thumbs down to the controversial Decision Review System (DRS) and backed the Indian cricket board's stand against its use.
"I am against the DRS. When you want technology you want to make sure that you don't leave any ambiguity. It's got to be one hundred per cent foolproof," the former India captain told reporters here.
"Whatever is the stand of the BCCI is also my stand," he added.
Venkat, who led India in the first two World Cups, was incidentally the last ICC Elite Panel umpire from India and none of his compatriots has made it to the list since his retirement from umpiring duties.
