New Delhi : Ahead of five-match Test series against England, Indian skipper Virat Kohli on Tuesday showed confidence on DRS system, which will be implied for the first time in upcoming Test series. The ball-tracking technology is no rocket science and gives a better opportunity to check the decision.

The BCCI had been defiant over the embrace the DRS system, which has been used in countries like Australia and England for quite long. The board recently agreed to use the technology on trial basis during Test series in England.

"Well there is no rocket science in DRS. As a cricketer you understand, you have a fair idea of where the ball has hit the pad, whether it has pitched in line or hit in line. Those are pretty basic things in cricket. You don't have to necessarily go through a course for DRS. I think we have observed enough by watching on the television as to how the is used and it basically depends upon what the bowler and wicketkeeper most importantly think of that particular event. It is nothing that we are much focussing on  It gives you a better opportunity to check on the decision that we feel is not right. I think that is pretty fair," Kohli said on the eve of the opening Test against England in Rajkot.

On cricketing facts, India had lost last three Test series played against England (2011, 2012 in India and 2014 in England). So far, both the teams have faced each other 112 times in Test matches, out of which England has managed to win 43, India 21 and rest 48 ended in draw.
