BCCI’s stance on DRS vindicated: Shastri

Speaking to Fairfax Media Shastri said, “We (BCCI) don't need to say anything now. I've told a lot of people now in India when I've been asked, it's time to shut up, watch, listen and read ... because what [we] have said has been vindicated. I said (this) two or three years ago. Wait until this happens in a massive series, then you watch what will happen.”

Shastri added, "They (BCCI) don't have to open their mouths at all now. People can make their own judgment now, they've watched it."
