When the Decision Review System (DRS) was introduced in 2006, India became the first country to use it in a Test match against Sri Lanka.

“Why do players go to the third umpire because they are not satisfied with the decision of the umpire standing on the field,” he said. But what does it mean if the third umpire also decides to obey the umpire standing on the field?
