Kohli praised Turner and bemoaned India’s “sloppy” fielding during the post-match ceremony but also raised his DRS concerns, unprompted.
“The DRS call as well, it was a bit of a surprise for all of us,” Kohli said.
“It’s becoming more of a talking point in every game. It’s just not consistent at all.
“That was a game-changer moment as well.
“That’s more of an uncontrollable but the controllables we had to do right and we didn’t.”
Kohli has generally been supportive of DRS, notably being the captain who ended India’s refusal to adopt the system.
“A few close calls. I know I didn’t nick that one that went upstairs,” Turner said.
“But my heart raced a little when I saw it on the big screen.”
Australia’s win in the third ODI was also marred by some DRS drama, which prompted Shane Warne and others to rage at ball-tracking technology.
Aaron Finch’s lbw dismissal was upheld last Friday by the third umpire.
However there appeared to be a clear discrepancy between where the ball actually landed and where the simulated ball-tracker replay suggested it did.
“It’s one of those things, technology isn’t right all of the time is it? Your phone sometimes runs out of service,” Finch said.
“All in all it’s a pretty good system. It’s there for the absolute howler of a decision and mine certainly wasn’t that, by any stretch.”
