Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma opted against ‘Dhoni Review System’, which strengthen the percentage of MS Dhoni’s decision making over DRS calls.

In the first One-Day International between India and South Africa, India’s captain and vice-captain send an appeal against Faf du Plessis upstairs. Jasprit Bumrah bowled that delivery well outside leg, but both Kohli and Rohit heard something while Dhoni and Bumrah were not interested at all.

Both batsmen were very confident about this call but it led Team India to waste a simple review.

The snick-o-meter showed that there was a day-light gap between bat-pad and Du Plessis carried on and registered a classy century.

South Africa gave a 270-run target to India, where the visitors went off to a shaky start. Both openers fell despite getting a good start. However, Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane are taking India in the sight of the target.
