Team India angered with reviews in South Africa cricket Test

Team India was visibly irked after a controversial Decision Review System (DRS) call, which helped South Africa skipper Dean Elgar get his LBW decision overturned in the ongoing fourth innings of the Cape Town Test at Newlands.

The controversial call evoked reactions from KL Rahul, skipper Virat Kohli, and spinner Ravichandran Ashwin. In the 21st over of the innings, the incident was bowled by Ashwin. The spinner bowled a tossed-up delivery, and it drifted in, beating Elgar on the inside edge, and the ball struck him right in front of the stumps, and on-field umpire Marais Erasmus raised his finger.

However, Elgar reviewed the decision, and replays showed that the ball was going over the stumps, and hence the decision was overturned.

Team India was shocked on seeing the ball going over the stumps, and the stump mic caught Kohli, Ashwin, and Rahul suggesting some tampering with the technology. Even umpire Erasmus was seen shaking his head on how the ball was missing the stumps.

The mic caught Ashwin saying: "You should find better ways to win Supersport (South Africa broadcaster)."

Elgar and Keegan Petersen held their ground as South Africa gained full control against India on Day 3 of the ongoing third Test at Newlands, Cape Town, on January 13.

As India got bundled out for 198, this became the first instance of all 20 wickets of a side getting dismissed out caught in a Test match.
