No umpire review for India-England one-dayers

The Umpire Decision Review System (UDRS) will not be used for the upcoming one-day series between India and England, the sport's governing body said on Friday.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) said the system will not be in place because the developers and suppliers of "Hot Spot" technology decided "not to make their infra-red cameras available."

Teams are allowed two television reviews per innings if they feel the on-field umpires have not given the correct decision.

India initially opposed the introduction of review technolgy in Tests and one-dayers but in July softened its stance to allow the hot spot in games to determine edges off the bat.

But it has vetoed the additional ball-tracker for leg-before decisions in its matches.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) reverted to its original opposition to the entire system after hot spot failed to accurately show edges off the bat on several occasions during India's recent dismal tour of England.

Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni hit out against the UDRS during the tour after star batsman Rahul Dravid fell victim to at least three controversial decisions.

England beat India 4-0 in the Tests to to take over as the world's number one side from Dhoni's men and also won the one-dayers 3-0.

The five-match one-day series between India and England opens in Hyderabad on October 14.
