Has there been a few bad decisions in the NZ series which has prompted this as I haven't been watching

or have they just relented

Maybe it was the older players like Tendulkar etc who opposed it.

Look forward to listening to Ravi Shastri tell us all how India invented DRS, made DRS better and how the Indians are better at DRS than everyone else in the upcoming series then

correct me if i'm wrong but the old players Sachin,dravid,laxman,dhoni did not like DRS and that's why it was blocked in India for years?

it wasn't just the board that said no, player power stopped it coming in?

Pretty sure it was Tendulkar and Dhoni whom refused to use DRS. Dravid has often said he's a big fan of DRS, as was Sehwag.

Kumble is pretty intelligent man(qualified engineer IIRC) and Kohli knows DRS will make his spinners even more dangerous.

Anyway good for the game
