There are very few better than former Indian skipper MS Dhoni when it comes to taking accurate DRS calls. MS Dhoni once again showed why he is the undisputed king of the DRS System with his sound judgement saving India a review in the first ODI against Australia on Saturday. His prudence in taking DRS calls has led it to being popularly known as ‘Dhoni Review System’.
It was during the 44th over of the Australian innings when Kuldeep trapped wicketkeeper batsman Alex Carey on the pads right in front of the stumps. The batsman intended to play a reverse sweep but failed to connect, making him an immediate candidate for an LBW decision. The spinner immediately went up for it and so did skipper Virat Kohli who was standing at first slip. The umpire however ruled the decision in favour of the batsman.
Virat Kohli seemed immediately interested in going for the review but MS Dhoni behind the stumps showed no excitement at all in the appeal. Kohli in the end decided not to go for the review following MS Dhoni’s lack of excitement. Replays on the giant screen showed clearly that Carey was playing with a long stride forward and the ball had turned just enough after pitching and was going on to miss the off stump.
