Team India Furious At The Third Umpire For Giving Not Out to Elgar

Ravichandran Ashwin bowled the fourth ball of the 21st over of South Africa’s second innings and the umpire gave Elgar LBW. At first sight, he was looking cleanout. But Elgar took the review. This is the second time this has happened in this series. Ashwin was seen on the stump mic saying try some other way to win SuperSport (South African broadcaster). Virat Kohli said that focus on your team too and not just on the opposition. Don’t try to catch people all the time. After this, KL Rahul said that the whole country is playing against 11 people.

Told to tamper with technology on stump mic

Team India was surprised to see the ball going over the stumps. Angered by this, Kohli, Ashwin, and Rahul talked about tampering with the technique on the stump mic. On-field umpire Mari Erasmus was also seen nodding his head. He himself had given this decision. They were also surprised how Baal was missing the stumps. There has also been a reaction from the South African team on this. South African pacer Lungi Ngidi said the Indian team’s reaction to the DRS shows his disappointment. This shows that they were under pressure.

Lungi Nagidi reacts

Elgar said, ‘I think this kind of reaction shows a little bit of despair. Sometimes teams take advantage of this. You really never want to show too much emotion, but their feelings show that maybe they’re feeling a little pressured. It was a good partnership for us (Dean Elgar and Keegan Peterson), so they wanted to break it. Everyone reacts differently to any given situation.

Strong comeback for South Africa

The batsmen of the host team batted brilliantly in the second innings. Elgar and Pietersen put on 78 runs for the second wicket after the first wicket fell for 23 runs. The way both were playing, it seemed that both of them would win the team, but Bumrah got Elgar caught out. South Africa got a target of 212 runs in the second innings but at the end of the third day’s play, they scored 101 runs for the loss of two wickets. Now they need just 111 runs to win and have eight wickets in hand.
