Johannesburg: South Africa finally managed to apply brakes to their losing streak in the ongoing six-match Momentum ODI Series by winning the fourth ODI in Johannesburg by 5 wickets via Duckworth–Lewis method on Saturday.
The match witnessed some action-packed moments, which saw dropped catches, poor fielding and the Proteas batsmen dominating the Indian spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav.
MS Dhoni too was once again one of the central figures. The former India skipper was involved in a DRS (decision review system) incident which showed why Team India relies on Dhoni to make the call.
Dhoni stopped Virat Kohli from using the review system because of which India managed to save their review.
The incident happened in 7th over of the innings as South Africa began the chase. Bumrah bowled a peach of a delivery to Hashim Amla as the ball came in sharply to miss the opener's bat and hit the pad before going straight into the wicketkeeper’s gloves.
Virat Kohli though was convinced that he had heard something and even consulted Rohit about going for the review.— 💛 (@WHISTLE_P0DU) February 12, 2018
MS Dhoni though quickly signalled to Kohli that there was no bat involved and that they shouldn’t go for a review here.

Every Indian fielder appealed for a caught behind, including Dhoni, but the umpire ruled it not-out. Team India vice-captain Rohit Sharma immediately signalled Kohli for review, but the Indian captain looked at Dhoni, who shook his head and asked him not to do so.
Replays showed there was no edge as the ball missed bat and hit the pad on the way to the keeper.
Dhoni, who scored 42 runs in 43 balls couldn't stop India from losing the fourth ODI as South Africa kept series alive with a win....
