India's cricket captain hasn't softened his attitude on the DRS

India's cricket captain MS Dhoni says a series of umpiring errors which helped Australia in the second innings of the MCG Test have not softened his opposition to the decision review system.

India lost the first test by 122 runs within four days in Melbourne.

India's refusal to allow technology-aided reviews for the four-Test series haunted the tourists with Ricky Ponting given one life in his second innings on Wednesday and Hussey given two yesterday morning, helping Australia build what proved a winning lead.

But Dhoni says he's happier having his team be both a beneficiary and victim of umpiring errors than allowing the men in the middle to be over-ruled by technology he regards as unreliable.
