Dean Elgar’s LBW decision was overturned by the Decision Review System (DRS) and that has caught the limelight in the world of cricket. All the drama started when Ravichandran Ashwin trapped Dean Elgar in front of the stumps.

The umpire, Marais Erasmus also had no hesitation and ruled Elgar out. However, the Protean skipper went for the referral. At first sight, it looked as if Elgar had been caught dead in front of the stumps, but DRS confirmed that the ball was missing the stumps, and overturned the decision of the on-field umpire. This took even Marais Erasmus by surprise. The Indian players were angry and were not happy with the decision.

India’s bowling coach Paras Mhambrey was asked about the Dean Elgar incident and Mhambrey replied that everyone saw what transpired in the middle. Mhambrey also added that he will leave the final call to the match referee, and would prefer to focus on the third Test match between the two sides.

“Indian bowling coach (in Press) said “We saw it, you saw it, everyone saw the LBW decision, I will leave to the match referee – time to focus on the match now,” said the Indian bowling coach at the end of the day’s play.

Mhambrey was also quizzed about the way the Indian players reacted to the incident, and the bowling coach quipped that sometimes emotions would also come into play as well on the field of play.

“Indian bowling coach (in Press) said “Emotions do come into the play at times,” read the tweet from a Twitter handle by name CricCrazy Johns. You can see the tweet below.

However, India had the last laugh as Dean Elgar was dismissed by Jasprit Bumrah off the final delivery of the day. South Africa ended the third day with their scoreboard reading a commanding 101/2, and only need 111 more runs for victory with 8 wickets in hand. The winner of the third Test match will win the three-match Test series between the two sides.
