England captain Ben Stokes questioned the DRS call on Zak Crawley’s dismissal after his side lost the second Test against India on Monday morning.
The tourists were bowled out for 292 chasing a record 399 on day four in Visakhapatnam as India bounced back from an opening loss to level the five-match series at 1-1.
“Being 2-0 up would have been great for us, but that’s the great thing about a five-match series, it’s the end of the series where everything counts,” Stokes told reporters.
“We’re a very level-headed team and that allows us to put things behind us, move on to the next thing and concentrate there.”
Opener Crawley stood out with his 73 as England came out attacking in their mountainous chase despite losing Ben Duckett on day three.
Crawley’s lbw before lunch was a subject of contention.
The on-field umpire denied India’s appeal off Kuldeep Yadav, but the hosts successfully reviewed the call.
The tracker showed the ball would have hit a large part of the leg stump, but Stokes said technology got it wrong.
“Technology in the game is obviously there. Everyone has an understanding of the reasons it can never be 100% which is why we have the umpire’s call,” said Stokes.
“But in a game full of ifs, buts and maybes, I am not going to say that’s the reason why we haven’t got the result we wanted. I’m just saying my personal opinion is that the technology has gone wrong on this occasion, and I think that’s fair to say.”
