South Africa A team is currently up against India A and the Protean side is dominating the proceedings with much style. However, Indian batters are fighting back but amid all, there was one sequence that stole the limelight completely. It happened when young Rahul Chahar threw his sunglasses in agitation after being denied a wicket by the umpire.
As the Indian bowlers struggled in the first innings of the game, South Africa A went up to post a humongous total of 509 runs on the board. Chahar was being the most expensive bowler from India’s artillery and it further pushed him to react in a frustrating manner.
The incident happened during the second session when Chahar was putting up his 25th over and he bowled to Sinethemba Qeshile. The ball hit the pads of batters and the bowler appealed to the umpire with all his enthusiasm but the umpire didn’t go with his appeal. The decision prompted the spinner to throw his sunglasses and was seen having some heated discussion with the umpire. However, he picked up his glasses and completed his over.

The ongoing series is quite important for the Indian players who wish to seal their places in India’s upcoming tour to South Africa. India’s tour to South Africa will commence from the Test series on the 17th of December. The likes of Prithvi Shaw, senior batter Hanuma Vihari, and young pace sensation Umran Malik are part of the tournament. Total three Tests will be played in this series where Ishan Kishan and Shardul Thakur are expected to show up from the upcoming encounters.
On the other hand, India’s senior side is up against New Zealand in the first Test of the two-match Test series. Day one ended in their favour where debutant Shreyas Iyer and Ravindra Jadeja built a sturdy stand for the fifth wicket. Indian side ended the day’s game after putting 258 runs on the board after losing four wickets. Shubman Gill’s early-on fifty made a great platform for the Indian batters to capture the opportunity.
