Kohli not pleased with DRS

10th March 2019, 19:41 by Daniel McCarthy

India captain Virat Kohli says the Decision Review System is becoming too much of a talking point after their 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."
