MS Dhoni may not be the captain of team India now but he is still the best person in the Indian squad to take a decision on Decision Review System (DRS). In fact, he is so accurate about DRS that his fans have started calling DRS as Dhoni Review System.
Only one DRS is allowed to team in the ODIs and going wrong in it can prove to be harmful for winning prospects of the team. In the fourth ODI played at Wanderers against South Africa, Dhoni stopped the Indian skipper Virat Kohli from wasting DRS.
During the eighth over of the South African batting, Indian bowler Jasprit Bumrah bowled a wonderful delivery which moved into the batsman Hashim Amla and went straight to the keeper, giving an impression that the ball had touched the bat.
Appeal was made to the umpire and Virat along with his deputy Rohit Sharma seem to be absolutely sure about it and the skipper was almost ready to go for DRS but then Dhoni signaled Virat that it was pad which touched the ball and not the bat.

The replays also proved Dhoni right, once again declaring him the King of DRS.
India lost the fourth ODI; however, it has taken a lead in the series after winning the first three ODIs against South Africa. India gave a target of 290 runs to the hosts but as rains spoiled the match, the target for South Africa was revised to 202 runs from 28 overs which the hosts scored with 5 wickets remaining.
We are looking forward to see India returning to winning path with the fifth ODI, are you?
