Series draw against New Zealand will create more awareness about us: Mominul Haque
12 Jan 2022
India had a tough day at the office against South Africa on the third day of third Test in Cape Town. During the course of the second innings of the South African team, India skipper Virat Kohli lost his cool after an on-field decision was overturned.
In one of Ashwin’s overs, Dean Elgar was trapped in front of the stumps and the on-field umpire gave him out. The Proteas’ captain subsequently took the review and the DRS showed that the ball had missed the stumps which eventually resulted in change of decision.
Reacting to this, Kohli on the stump mic said, “Focus on your team as well when they shine the ball eh, not just the opposition. Trying to catch people all the time."
India opener KL Rahul added something more to this and said, “The whole country against us 11.”
Talking about the game, South Africa ended the proceedings at 101/2 on Day 3 and now need 111 more runs to win the match and the series.
Earlier, India managed to score 198 riding on an emphatic hundred from Rishabh Pant before getting bundled out. Marco Jansen picked up four wickets for South Africa in the second innings while Rabada and Ngidi had three wickets each to their names.
