Former Indian cricketer, Suresh Raina revealed that MS Dhoni is aware that fans refer to DRS as the Dhoni Review System while adding, the Indian legend often decided to take a review at the last moment. Dhoni was known for taking pin-point DRS calls in addition to his batting and wicket-keeping abilities. Dhoni had been skeptical of the Decision Review System (DRS) for a long time, so Team India decided not to use it in the bilateral series.

With time, MS Dhoni was convinced of technology and quickly became arguably the best DRS practitioner. His accuracy level was so high the fans often dubbed the Dhoni Review System, and there were numerous occasions throughout his international career when the former India captain proved them correct.

MS Dhoni had the best view of the action as a wicketkeeper, which definitely helped him make the right decisions. However, the fact that not every wicketkeeper is as skilled with the DRS only adds to Dhoni’s uniqueness.

During a recent chat with Viacom18 Sports, Suresh Raina said, “MS Dhoni is aware that fans call DRS the Dhoni Review System. Even for me, it has always been the Dhoni Review System. Only later, I discovered the real term.”

He further added, “Dhoni always takes the review at the last second because the bowler always thinks that it is out but it is Dhoni, who, from behind the stumps has a clearer vision of all three stumps and can take a better call.”

MS Dhoni’s former teammate Pragyan Ojha also jokingly said that he felt that the umpire used to check if MS Dhoni had appealed for the dismissal.

Pragyan Ojha cheekily said, “I feel the umpire checks as well if Dhoni has appealed for the wicket or not. If Dhoni has appealed, it must be out.”
