Australia continued their resurgence in the ongoing ODI series as they stunned India by four wickets in the fourth ODI in Mohali to level the five-match series 2-2.

After the visitors hunted down a mammoth 359, Virat Kohli felt Ashton Turner's 43-ball 84-run knock made the difference between the two sides.

However, the India skipper expressed his displeasure at the DRS decision over Turner being ruled not out after snickometer showed a spike as the ball passed the bat.

DRS has been in the spotlight throughout this Australia series and has been criticised for being inconsistent.

"But the DRS call was a bit of surprise for all of us and it's becoming a more of a talking point every game, it's just not consistent at all, that was a game-changing moment," said Kohli in the post-match presentation.

It happened in the 44th over when Turner on 41. Rishabh Pant was certain that Turner had nicked and asked for a caught behind appeal to be reviewed for which Kohli gave his nod. The snickometer that showed a spike as the ball passed the bat also showed lighter disturbances even before the ball reached the batsman. Due to which the third umpire decided that there wasn't enough evidence to overturn the on-field decision.

"There were a few close calls and I know that I didn't nick that one. That went upstairs, my heart raced a little bit when I saw it on the big screen..." Turner said after collecting the Man-of-the-Match award.
