Lack of DRS concerning England ahead of 2nd Test

England coach Andy Flower believes controversy is just around the corner in the high-profile test series against India because of the tourists' stubborn refusal to adopt the Decision Review System.

England beat India by 196 runs at Lord's to take a 1-0 lead in the four-match series, but there is already growing concern within the home camp that the lack of DRS could lead to frayed tempers in the remaining three tests.

Umpire Billy Bowden turned down Stuart Broad's lbw appeals against Sachin Tendulkar and Suresh Raina at Lord's even though replays indicated the decisions were incorrect.

It didn't affect the outcome, but Flower says the situation is "unsatisfactory" and is predicting trouble in future matches, beginning with the second test at Trent Bridge starting on Friday.
