Umpire's call has been a bone of contention for teams all across the world. 100 percent of the ball will have to hit a batsman's pads on impact for the third umpire to reverse the on-field decision.

Kohli was quick to review it but the DRS turned it down as it was 50-50 on impact and was also pitched outside offstump. And in such a case 'Umpire's Call' stays. Kohli was angry when he realised that another review from India would go begging.
