Manchester: On most occasions, MS Dhoni is accurate while using the Decision Review System (DRS). But, on Sunday (June 16), he erred and it was a big reprieve for Pakistan’s Babar Azam.

During the India-Pakistan ICC World Cup 2019 big clash at Old Trafford in Manchester, captain Virat Kohli wanted to go for a review against batsman Azam but Dhoni convinced him not to go for it.

Later, when TV replays were shown, the ball had hit the pad first and later Azam’s bat. If Kohli had gone for DRS, Azam would have been out LBW. The incident happened in the 19th over bowled by Yuzvendra Chahal. At the time, Azam was on 34. However, Kuldeep Yadav struck later to send him back bowled with a top-class delivery, for 48.

It was a rare day when Dhoni got the DRS wrong. While fans have renamed DRS as ‘Dhoni Review System’, there were comments on Twitter that Sunday was not Dhoni’s day.

Earlier, India posted 336/5 in 50 overs with Rohit Sharma starring with the bat with 140. There were half centuries from KL Rahul and Kohli.

When India started bowling, they were dealt a huge blow as Bhuvneshwar Kumar limped off the field with a hamstring injury. He was ruled out of the remainder of the contest. He bowled just 2.4 overs for eight runs.
