India and England will not be able to review decisions during the ODI series in the sub-continent due to the absence of 'Hotspot'

The Decision Review System will not be used during the one-day series between India and England following a decision by the developers and suppliers of 'Hotspot' not to make their infra-red cameras available for the five-match rubber.

At its June meeting, the ICC executive board decided that infra-red cameras were one of the minimum requirements for the reduced criteria for DRS. For example, when ball-tracking is not employed.

As a result of DRS not being used in this series, ICC elite panel umpire Simon Taufel will not be required to officiate in the matches, meaning Billy Bowden will stand in the series.
