Aakash Chopra tells Tim Paine to Give a call to MS Dhoni
Despite Australia’s success in retaining ash, the inability of Tim Paine to make the right decisions regarding the DRS (Decision Review System) during the series was under the scanner. Digging into Tim Paine, former Indian commentator Aakash Chopra asked the 34-year-old, Paine to call former Indian captain MS Dhoni and ask if he is enrolling students in his class.
Give a call to Dhoni. See if he’s ready to take students 🤣😂 Dhoni Review System. https://t.co/kcfuH1S6tQ

During the fifth and final test of the series, Paine agreed with the fact that his team is having nightmares after receiving most of the wrong DRS calls. The Australian skipper decision not to conduct a review was two times incorrect against Jon Denly and Jos Buttler.
Follow-up replays of the ball later showed that if Paine had sent LBW appeal from Mitch Marsh and Nathan Lyon to above, the decisions would have turned in Australia’s favour.
Addressing a press conference, Paine said, “I’m making a mistake. I don’t know what else to say. We’re having a mare (nightmare). We made a mistake.”
“It’s fast, and it’s a tough job like I’ve said throughout the entire test series. I have a new respect for arbitration, particularly in test cricket because it’s a difficult job,” Paine added.
