Virat Kohli says the Decision Review System needs to become more consistent after India’s ODI loss to Australia.
Early in his innings, Ashton Turner was adjudged to be not out despite the snicko-meter showing a spike following a DRS call from India.
Turner was then able to score an unbeaten 84 off 43 balls to help Australia get over the line and level the series 2-2 following the game in Mohali.
Kohli said after the four-wicket loss that the system in place is becoming too farcical.
“The DRS call was a surprise, it’s just not consistent at all, it’s becoming a talking point in every game,” said Kohli.
However, despite his criticisms, Kohli conceded that Australia did deserve to win the match.
“The wicket remained good throughout, we’ve fallen on the wrong side of the dew in two games, but that’s not an excuse. Ashton played a hell of a knock, Peter Handscomb played a brilliant innings, Usman Khawaja held the innings together,” he continued.
“They played better cricket, we got to accept and it’s a record chase, they deserved to win. If we had won the toss, we would’ve batted first (in Ranchi). We had to get the fifth bowler out of the way tonight. If Kedar Jadhav and Vijay Shankar was bowling with the dew, it would’ve been more difficult, so we wanted to get done with it first.”

The Cricket Badger and Dan Norcross are back with part two of their World Cup chat.
Jofra Archer’s inevitable promotion came at David Willey’s cost when Ed Smith named his 15-man World Cup squad…
“It is probably the most challenging World Cup of all the three that I have been part of.”
“To be honest, I think international cricket is probably the same intensity as the IPL.”
“You look at the squad, we’re going into a tournament where there’s no question marks.”
“I think we’re in for a special World Cup, and I think England will be right at the heart of it.”
England’s dramatic change in character has left some long-time fans upset, confused and angry.
