India vs Australia: Virat Kohli outraged at the DRS after Mohali loss

India vs Australia: Virat Kohli outraged at the DRS after Mohali loss

India's wicketkeeper-batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni (MSD) was replaced by young bloke Rishabh Pant in the fourth ODI against Australia.

After the visitors hunted down a mammoth 359, Virat Kohli felt Ashton Turner's 43-ball 84-run knock was the difference between the two sides. "Ashton played a hell of a knock, Peter Handscomb played a brilliant inning, Usman Khawaja held the innings together".

With the win, Australia have levelled the five-match series 2-2.

"To have someone as flexible as that is a great asset to any team, because then you can build a team around them and they can nearly fill any hole you need", captain Aaron Finch had said of the reigning Australian men's ODI player of the year.

However, they will ponder over the form of experienced Shaun Marsh, who has struggled to find form since his return from injury. However, Vijay Shankar's 2-wicket final over denied Australia a chance to register a win and helped India win the Nagpur ODI by eight runs.

On the other hand, this will be the waking call for the men in blues ahead of the World Cup. He is a champion bowler and has been bowling really well in the last two years. But they will still think about the no four spot as Ambati Rayudu is yet to showcase his consistency to seal the debate.

Skipper Virat Kohli has slammed the decision review system (DRS) as "not consistent" after India had a referral turned down by the TV umpire and went on to lose the fourth one-day worldwide to a record Australia chase in Mohali. The temperature will hover around 22 degrees Celsius to 24 degrees Celsius making it ideal for a cricket match. "If Kedar Jadhav and Vijay Shankar was bowling with the dew, it would've been more hard, so we wanted to get done with it first", said Kohli.

The move had prompted criticism from within Pakistan, with both Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry and Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi calling for the cricket's world governing body to take action against and ban India for politicising the Gentleman's Game. His previous highest score came on his debut, which was of 82 against Pakistan at Perth in 2017.
