England captain Eoin Morgan has expressed his frustration over poor umpiring at the second T20 international against India at Nagpur.

He was particularly disappointed at dismissal of Joe Root, who was given LBW by umpire C Shamshuddin in the last over of the match, costing England a five-run loss.

After the match, Morgan said, "There is extreme frustration, absolutely."

In context: Use of DRS in T20 Internationals

DetailsUDRS and its use

The Umpire Decision Review System (UDRS) was introduced by the International Cricket Council (ICC) to review the controversial decisions made by the on-field umpires on dismissal of a batsman.

It was first launched in 2009 for test cricket and was used in the One Day Internationals in 2011.

The UDRS has faced several controversies and has been opposed by many test playing nations.

While the DRS has made its test and ODI debut, ICC has not made the use of the system in T20 internationals. There have been several debates on whether to use the system in T20, but no decision has been made by ICC.
