The Indian cricket team, which is touring South Africa, first played in a three-match Test series. India won the first match and lost the next two matches. The inexperienced South African team was expected to beat the Indian team. However, the South African team recovered from the defeat and raised the banner of victory, disproving the predictions of cricket critics.
In particular, they defeated India by 7 wickets in the 3rd Test. During the match, the DRS decision given to Dean Elgar caused severe dissatisfaction among the Indian players.
Erasmus, who was the field referee, expressed his displeasure to St Mike. Then, Indian team captain Virat Kohli went to the stump mic and lashed out directly saying don’t focus on the opponent, focus on your team.
KL Rahul, vice-captain of the Indian team, lamented that the entire nation was operating against 11 men. Similarly, Aswin, Mayang Agarwal and others recorded their dissatisfaction on the field. Thus, the Indian team was expected to be fined. But so far no penalty has been imposed on the Indian team.
If the umpires had thought, the Indian team could have been fined. But due to some caring view of the umpires, the entire Indian team escaped the penalty. Notably, 3 Test championship points were reduced for bowling late in the first Test.
