Called "confusing" by India captain Virat Kohli, the Umpire's Call has been a subject of controversy for a while now.
The controversy over Suryakumar Yadav's dismissal in the fourth T20I against England provides the cricketing establishment a golden chance to make a break from the trend of relying blindly on technology.
Suryakumar Yadav was unlucky to have been given out in the 14th over after repeated replays of Dawid Malan's catch off Sam Curran by the TV umpire.
Ananthan will become the fourth international umpire from Kerala after Jose Kurishinklal, Dr K N Raghavan and S Dendapani.
Polosak is the fourth umpire for the Sydney Test between Australia and India.
Tendulkar pointed out that the players challenge the on-field umpire's decision since they are unhappy with the call and hence the sport's world governing body needs to seriously look into the issue.
The elevation to the ICC International Panel of Umpires is a tribute to Ananthan's commitment to the game and determination to excel in a field that he chose for himself.
The former Kerala captain has been officiating in the high-pressure IPL from 2016 and he hopes that it will stand him in good stead.
Conduct of the game within the laws and upholding its spirit are the responsibility of not only the umpires but also the entire set of players led by the two captains and the match referee.
The 36-year-old, who has officiated in three Tests, 24 ODIs and 16 T20Is, is only the third from India to make it to the prestigious group.
