Cricket fans on Sunday reminded Kolkata Knight Riders' captain Dinesh Karthik why DRS is called the 'Dhoni Review System.'

Over the years, Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s immaculate judgement on the Decision Review System (DRS) has led to the system being renamed as ‘Dhoni Review System’ by his admirers. And the term started trending once again, but for all the wrong reasons, when Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) took on Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the iconic Eden Gardens in the ongoing Indian Premier League on Sunday.
Led by Dinesh Karthik, Kolkata Knight Riders were searching for early wickets when leg-spinner Piyush Chawla bowled a good-length ball and struck the SRH batsman David Warner on the pads in his second over. A huge appeal by Karthik and Chawla followed but the ground umpire remained unmoved and judged him not out. Convinced that Warner was a gonner, wicket-keeper Karthik had a brief discussion with Chawla before going upstairs for the DRS.
The replays showed that the ball had, in fact, pitched outside the leg, proving Karthik wrong and KKR losing the crucial review.
Reminding him that it was "Dhoni Review System" and not "Dinesh Review System," Twitterati came out in full force to mock the KKR skipper.
Shocking DRS call by Dinesh Karthik.That's why Dhoni is such a great wicket keeper. #KKRvSRH— Siddharth Jha (@jha_siddhus91) March 24, 2019
This is the difference between a #Dhoni Review System and a #DineshKarthik Review System! Both are #DRS, but miles apart from each other when it comes to the accuracy and logic! #KKRvSRH #IPL #IPL2019— Sayan Dey (@sayan_dey) March 24, 2019
That was one of the worst reviews ever. In the history of DRS. Wasn't even appeal-worthy. #KKRvSRH— Kunal Tolani 🏏⚡ (@Kunal_jt) March 24, 2019
Pathetic reviews taken by Indian Players continue. Dinesh Karthik the culprit on this occasion! It’s like they don’t know fundamental rules of LBW! Everything that hits the pads is out! #IPL2019— RG (@2_rg) March 24, 2019
Luckily for Karthik, KKR eventually emerged on the winning side after Andre Russell's late heroics 49 (19) including four sixes and boundaries each and Shubham Gill's crucial knock of 18 (10) helped the home team chase down Sunrisers' score of 181.
With his 85 in 53, SRH's Warner was the top scorer in the thrilling Sunday contest.
