Former cricketer calls Kohli the worst reviewer

By Christopher Paul

Former England captain Michael Vaughan, who came under controversy after he predicted that England would win the 4th Test match is back under the spotlight. Vaughan called the Indian team captain Virat Kohli the worst reviewer in the world on Sunday.

During England’s second innings of the fifth and final Test match in the five-match series, Kohli had taken two reviews. Unfortunately for the Indian skipper, both DRS calls went against India and the visitors lost both of them.

Upon seeing this, Michael Vaughan took to Twitter to voice his opinion. He didn’t just insult Kohli but also praised him. Vaughan said that Virat was the best batsman in the world but also the worst reviewer.

The reviews under question took place during the second innings of the final Test match. In the 10th over, England’s opener Keaton Jennings got hit on the pads during a delivery by Ravindra Jadeja. The review was taken and it showed the impact was outside off. Even a replay from the Hawk-Eye showed the same.

The second time was during the 12th over, when Alastair Cook was hit on the pads by another delivery by Ravindra Jadeja. Kohli went for a review which showed the impact was again outside the off stump. The ball had struck the back-thigh which was well outside off.

At the moment India has lost the series as the score is in the hosts favor 3-1. India had lost the first Test match by 31 runs, then India lost the second Test match by 159 runs. India was able to make a huge comeback during the third Test match with a massive 203 run victory over the hosts. Unfortunately, India wasn’t able to keep the momentum going and lost the fourth Test match by 60 runs.
