The 4th ball of the 21st over of the South African second innings created a lot of drama. Ravichandran Ashwin bowled a good length delivery, and Dean Elgar completely missed it. The left-hander was struck on the pads and it looked as if Elgar was caught plumb in front of the stumps.

The umpire raised his finger and South Africa went for the review. The replays showed that the ball was missing the stumps, and the Indian players were not happy. In fact, even the umpire Marais Erasmus was muttering ‘that is impossible’.

Also, India’s veteran spinner Ravichandran Ashwin was also not pleased and muttered ‘You should find better ways to win at SuperSport Park’.

KL Rahul and Virat Kohli not happy as well

Also, Indian skipper Virat Kohli and KL Rahul were also not happy with the decision. Kohli went to the stump mic and was heard muttering ‘Focus on your team and not on the opposition’.

Indian opener KL Rahul was also heard commenting that the whole of South Africa were playing against 11 Indian players. South Africa have gained the upper hand in the 3rd Test match at Cape Town.

The South African scorecard reads 101/2, and the hosts are only 111 runs adrift of the target. A Twitter handle named Samriddhi tweeted about the incident.

“F***ing camera team. SuperSport is a joke. Focus on your team as well as they shine the ball eh not just the opposition. trying to catch people all the time. Kohli is angry as hell,” read the tweet from the Twitter handle.

Earlier in the day, Rishabh Pant played a marvellous knock for the Indian side. The left-hander scored a breath-taking 100* off just 139 deliveries, as India were bowled out for a total of 198 runs in their second innings.  Pant struck 6 fours and 4 sixes in his stay out in the middle. Apart from Pant, Indian skipper Virat Kohli also scored a patient 143-ball 29 for the Indian side.
