Indian cricket fans supported an angry Virat Kohli after the skipper lashed out at umpire Bruce Oxenford for allowing New Zealand to take a late Decision Review System (DRS) during the second ODI match at Eden Park, Auckland on Saturday.

Opting to bowl first in the must-win match, India ran into the Kiwi openers, Martin Guptill and Henry Nicholls. The duo posted 93 runs in 16.4 overs, then it happened. Nicholls played an ill-advised sweep shot against Yuzvendra Chahal and was hit on the pad forcing Oxenford to raise the finger.

Nicholls and Guptill, after a long discussion, took the review but the time was already elapsed. That infuriated Kohli and the skipper was seen arguing with the umpire.

Chahal, who had earlier dropped Nicholls in the 15th over as India started nervously in the field again, got the wicket despite the review.

Indian fans took to social media platforms to support the skipper. Here are some reactions:

Ross Taylor once again produced a rearguard act with an unbeaten half-century to rescue New Zealand to 273 for eight.

Taylor scored 73 not out (74 balls, 6 fours, 2 sixes) -- his 51st half-century -- and put on 76 off 51 balls for the ninth wicket with debutante Kyle Jamieson (25 not out off 24 balls) to lift the hosts from 197-8 to a competitive score.

Put in to bat, New Zealand got off to a positive start as Guptill (79) and Nicholls (41) put on 93 runs for the first wicket.

Guptill smashed a run-a-ball 79 to give the Black Caps a good start but they lost seven wickets for 55 runs to look down the barrel at one stage.
