New Zealand captain Daniel Vettori has thrown his weight behind the use of the Umpire Decision Review System, insisting "it is good for the game".
The system will not be used in the upcoming three-match Test series in India after the Board of Control for Cricket in India and some key Indian players, including skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, expressed doubt about its efficiency.
But Vettori believes the UDRS represents the way forward.
"I like the referral system," said the 32-year-old spinner.
"There are still a few hiccups with the technology, but I think it is good for the game if it is used consistently."
Black Caps manager Mark Greatbatch echoed Vettori's thoughts and feels the system would help the game.
"Though the referral system would require to be perfected, it is a positive thing for the game," said Greatbatch.
