Do Indian skipper Virat Kohli needs to up his DRS game? While many are happy that he is a better reviewer than English captain Joe Root, former England skipper Michael Vaughan, without comparing him to a specific player, believes he is the worst.
Vaughan decided to let the world know about it on Twitter. A tweet like that in open, you got to be kidding? Soon the cricketer-turned-commentator was attacked by the fans. Funnily, fans compared him with Root.
Vaughan tweeted: “Virat is the best Batsman in the World .. #Fact .. Virat is the worst reviewer in the World .. #Fact”
Is Virat good, or is he bad or maybe worse? You decide. But we can't ignore what happened on the third day of the fifth Test where Kohli went for two reviews in just 12 overs of England's second innings play and both were turned down. So now India will be bowling in the second innings without any review and going by the accuracy on-field umpires have these days they are surely going to miss the DRS.
Not only Vaughan, Indian former cricketer Ajit Agarkar too commented on Virat's inability to judge a decision and asked him to be cautious with his review calls in future.
Fans were quite upset with Vaughan's words and no they didn't slam him, poor Root was roasted.
