Virat Kohli has called the DRS system inconsistent after the potential dismissal of Ashton Turner was overturned by the third umpire on Sunday.
Turner, who was on 41 at the time, went on to hit an unbeaten 43-ball 84 that helped Australia chase down 359 – their highest ever in ODI cricket. This clinched a four-wicket win for the visitors to level the five-match series at 2-2 on Sunday.
Turner was caught behind off India spinner Yuzvendra Chahal in the 44th over, and the decision was reviewed by India after the decision was given not out by the on-field umpire.
Replays showed a gap between the ball and bat, but the ‘snickometre’ showed a spike after the ball had passed the edge. The third umpire chose not to overturn the original on-field decision.
Kohli was not pleased with the outcome of the decision.
‘We were sloppy in the field and should’ve grabbed our chances,’ said Kohli.
‘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.’
