With DRS for India-England ODI series, Virat Kohli to trust MS Dhoni's word

Posted By: PTI

Pune, Jan 14: With the Decision Review System (DRS) set to be used for the first time in a bilateral One-day series in India, captain Virat Kohli says Mahendra Singh Dhoni's inputs from behind the stumps would be invaluable in taking a call in the matches against England.

"It's priceless. I saw a stat yesterday that 95% of the appeals that he's made in his career have been successful. As a captain I have no sort of extra thinking as far as DRS is concerned. He's one voice, if he tells me it's outside the line or it is missing, the decision stands there. It's not left up to doubt or any further debate from there on," Kohli said.

"He's someone who has always been very smart with decision making, as far as appeals are concerned as well. I think his word will be the one word that I will trust as far as DRS is concerned. Because he is in the best position, plus he's the most intelligent cricketer around, so there's no doubt in my mind," added Kohli in full praise of Dhoni and his judgement calls.
