India Vs Australia: Virat Kohli criticised for 'leaving the ball', wasting DRS

It was another error of judgement from Kohli, who tried to leave an off-break delivery headed straight for the stumps, and paid the price of leaving it.

It was the fifth occasion when Kohli was removed by Lyon, joint most with England speedster James Anderson.

Kohli not only put his side in a spot of bother, as hosts lost three wickets with out even touching three-figure-mark, but also took an unnecessary DRS.

The skipper was criticised for wasting a review as the ball tracker showed the ball hitting his leg stump.
