India's captain Virat Kohli has said that Australia crossed the line "that you don't cross on a cricket field" when it comes to DRS protocols.

Kohli, expectedly, wasn't impressed and his body language while walking back to the dressing room cleared what he thought of the decision. While consulting with partner Peter Handscomb, Smith looked up to the Australian changing rooms on the suggestion of his batting partner in the hopes of getting a clue as whether to proceed or not, only for the umpire to spot the indiscretion.
Some of the possible destinations outside of Minnesota that have been suggested for the running back have included the Dallas Cowboys (no idea why), New York Giants , and Tampa Bay Buccaneers among a few others.

He is also highly regarded by Jon Rudkin, the club's director of football. Shakespeare and his men travelled to Dubai on Sunday for a warm-weather training camp and it's understood the former England coach held talks on Monday with Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, club chairman, and Aiyawatt, his son, who joined Leicester on the trip.
Kohli accused Australia of taking help from the dressing room on at least three occasions before making their mind up on reviews. "We knew if we got anything over 150, we had a chance", Kohli said.

Some NFL teams had the time on the 40 even faster than that, with several reporters saying that times of 4.16 and 4.19 were registered among team stopwatches.
