Former England cricketer Michael Vaughan called Indian skipper Virat Kohli – the worst reviewer in the world on Sunday. Kohli had taken two reviews during England’s second innings in the ongoing fifth and final Test match at The Oval in London. Both the DRS calls didn’t go India’s favour and the visitors ultimately lost both of them.
The first call was made in the 10th over (9.2 overs) when England opener Keaton Jennings was hit on the pads off Ravindra Jadeja’s delivery. A review was taken and replays suggested the impact was outside off. The Hawk Eye later showed the same as the ball was tossed up outside off.
The second incident took place in the 12th over (11.6 overs). This time, Alastair Cook was hit on the pads off Jadeja’s delivery. Kohli yet again decided to go for a review. The impact was again outside the off-stump as Cook was caught on his back-foot. The ball struck Cook on the back-thigh which was well outside off.
Watching India quickly losing both of their reviews, Vaughan took to Twitter to make his feelings heard. “Virat is the best Batsman in the World .. #Fact .. Virat is the worst reviewer in the World .. #Fact #ENGvsIND”, he wrote.

The Indian fans just cannot take anything against their captain marvel and therefore, hit back at the Englishman pointing out Joe Root’s DRS calls and how he’s even worse.
Here are some replies from the triggered fans:
Joe Root isn’t far behind
