Indian skipper Virat Kohli criticised the Decision Review System after a close call went against them during the high-scoring 4th ODI at Mohali.
Kohli was referring to the DRS call in respect to Ashton Turner. While batting on 41 in the 44th over, Turner it seemed had edged one to wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant. After the on-field umpire turned down India's appeal, India asked for a review. Although there was a spike on snickometer, the third umpire decided not to overturn the on-field umpire's decision.
Turner went on to blast an unbeaten 84 off just 43 balls to play the stellar role in Australia's sensational chase. Expressing his dissatisfaction at the decision, Kohli said, "The DRS call was a bit of surprise for all of us and it's becoming a more of a talking point every game. It's just not consistent at all, that was a game-changing moment.
The DRS came into focus at Ranchi as well. There was ball tracking error as the ball did not pitch on the marker which was created from the first replay.
India, batting first, slammed 358. However, with the dew factor combined with some sensational hitting, India were unable to stop Australia from squaring the series.
