Virat Kohli unhappy with ‘game changing’ DRS call against Ashton Turner

India captain Virat Kohli was left stunned as Australia’s middle-order batsman Ashton Turner survived a controversial DRS call and went on to lead the visitors to a series-levelling victory in the fourth ODI in Mohali.

Needing 66 runs off just 39 balls to surpass India’s massive total of 359, Turner was caught in dire straits when wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant asked for a review.

Turner – who was on 41 – had chased down a wide delivery from spinner Yuzvendra Chahal when Pant insisted that the batsman had edged the ball.

The Snickometer showed a spike as the ball passed the bat but it had shown lighter disturbances even before the ball reached the batsman as well and the third umpire decided that there wasn’t enough evidence to overturn the on-field decision.

With Turner going on to score an unbeaten 84 off 43 balls to lead Australia to victory, the Indian captain was still fuming at the post-match presentation ceremony.

“But 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,” said Kohli.

Here’s the video:

This isn’t the first time that DRS has come into the spotlight in the ongoing series. In Ranchi, Aaron Finch was adjudged out on 93 with the ball-tracker showing a clear error.
