While Virat Kohli continues to break records in Test Cricket, there’s one record he doesn’t hold and would not ever want to claim. New Zealand’s Kane Williamson leapfrogged the Indian skipper because he has the lowest success rate in Decision Review System (DRS) appeals. The Kiwi skipper has a success rate of only 12.2% while using the DRS.

Williamson did not have much luck with reviews in the first Test against England. He failed to review a Trent Boult appeal which could have been overturned.
