The 32/33 Ashes tour was literally responsible for a change in the laws of the game.

Although arguably one of the biggest changes came about because of a tour that didn't happen: England's cancelled 68/69 tour to RSA (AKA "The D'Oliveira Affair") hastened the host's exclusion from international sport for over two decades.

England's defeat to Bangladesh in 2015 WC was the beginning of the transformation into something special.

I know it's not tests but its a story that changed English white ball cricket and a story worth mentioning.

Even if it was, which is contestable, guess which country was the holdout?
Within 6 months of Sydney Test, DRS was introduced . So that series certainly acted as catalyst behind DRS if not the main reason.

Regarding holdout, you can blame Indian cricketers for not understanding the rules of DRS completely.

How about actually ponying up some evidence?

The only thing special about the 2007/08 series was how much BCCI winged about it. But as starfighter mentioned, the introduction of DRS can't have been mainly a result of salty India because then when it was introduced they refused to even use it.

I think Sydney definitely accelerated it's introduction. India did use it at first but botched it's use then hated and refused to use it.

DRS was 1st used in IND-SL test series. However many Indian players couldn't understand DRS rules and used it wrongly .

So you can criticise Indian players here for not further using DRS.
