Kohli took two reviews within 12 overs and lost both of them. 

Former England captain Michael Vaughan is quite active on social media and doesn't hesitate to speak his mind freely and this time he produced an oxymoron. He lauded and mocked Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli at the same time, in one sentence to be precise. While hailing Kohli as one of the greatest batsman in the world on one side, he mocked the skipper by calling him 'the worst reviewer in the world'. 

'Virat is the best Batsman in the World .. #Fact .. Virat is the worst reviewer in the World .. #Fact #ENGvsIND', read Vaughan's tweet.

The former England skipper's tweet comes after the Indian cricket captain lost two reviews within 12 overs on Day 3 of the fifth and final Test between India and England which is being played at The Oval, London. 

On both occasions, Ravindra Jadeja (1/36) and keeper Rishabh Pant convinced skipper Kohli to go for the reviews, despite the ball missing the off-stump.

India had also lost both their reviews on the second day itself.

The final Test is slowly slipping away from India, as the England batsmen once again are torturing the Indian bowlers with their gritty performances and survival instincts. 

Playing the final innings of his illustrious Test career, Alastair Cook (46*) continued to build England's lead as he, along with captain Joe Root, led the hosts to 114/2 at stumps, with a lead of 154 runs against India on the third day of the fifth and final Test of the five-match series at The Oval. 

Cook, who will retire from Test cricket at the end of his 161st match, came through a shaky start to maintain his hopes of a farewell century at the Oval. He scored 71 in England's first innings. 

England will resume their second innings as Cook takes stage for the last time on Day 4 along with skipper Root.
