dean elgar (Dean Elgar) The DRS controversy had not even cooled down that in the opening overs of the fourth day’s play, there was a ruckus over the decision of another DRS. Virat Kohli (Virat Kohli) The middle ground again seemed to lose its temper. He was seen arguing with the umpire on the decision. This time the batsman in front was Van der Dusse (Van der Dussen) And the bowler was Shami. In the case of Dean Elgar, the South African captain himself appealed for DRS. This time the Indian captain took DRS. Like the Dean Elgar case, this time too the verdict went in the favor of South Africa.
The second incident related to DRS happened in the 7th over of South Africa’s innings in the fourth day’s play. Van der Dusse was beaten on the very first ball of Shami’s over. Team India made a strong appeal. From the sound that came, it seemed that the ball took the edge of the bat and went into the gloves of wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant. Pant was sure it was a catch. After the on-field umpire’s rejection, India took the DRS.
Indian players were surprised at the decision
The third umpire did not see any contact between the ball and the bat at first sight. Then he looked in the snickometer and gave the batsman not out. The Indian players were again surprised by the decision. Because he felt that the ball had taken the lighter edge of the bat. But, the third umpire did not find any concrete evidence of this, on which he could change the decision of the on-field umpire.
This decision again filled the Indian camp with anger. The same scene started being created in the match which happened on the third day with Dean Elgar. Indian captain Virat Kohli was seen going ahead and talking to the umpire on the decision. But, now all this was of no use.
Verdict right or wrong?
However, after the batsman’s beat, the sound that came close up shows that it is not of the collision of the ball and the bat but of the bat hitting the ground. On closing the camera, it is clear that the bat hit the ground, the voice is his. Therefore, this decision related to DRS seems to be correct. And this is different from the Dean Elgar DRS controversy.
