Ever since the tech piece was delayed, Kohli in upper India picking up a wicket has been captured by the stump saying.
There is no dull moment when Virat Kohli is on the pitch. And with absolutely no crowds in the stadiums for the India vs South Africa series, Kohli the artist is in full swing. It’s amazing how the captain of India manages to stay in action all the time.
If on day three he was caught by Stump’s microphone shouting an iconic slogan from former WWE Superstar The Rock, on day five Kohli produced another gem which was captured at the antenna.
The incident happened on the 51st of the day, when Jasprit Bumrah trapped Dean Elgar out of LBW for 77. When the ball hit Elgar on the pads, the referee’s finger rose. With South Africa taking another heavy blow, the captain had no choice but to revisit the decision even though it appeared to lead with Elgar coming through on impact.
TV referee Allahudien Paleker, after not spotting any club, moved on to follow the ball, which took some time.As Palekar was noticed several times saying “Please continue to follow the ball”, but there was absolutely nothing.
As the technology was delayed, Kohli in India picking up a wicket was captured by the stump microphone he was saying. “Come on, don’t take that long. “Surprisingly, as soon as Kohli’s words were spoken, the balloon tracking appeared. He showed three reds as the Indian team rose to celebrate.
The window came at the right time for India, although they really could have done it a little earlier. Resuming the innings at 94/4 on the deciding day, Elgar and Temba Bavuma’s pair added a lively 36-point partnership before it was still this man, Jasprit Bumrah, who provided the breakthrough.
By the end of the 56 mark, South Africa had reached 150/5 with the collision of Bavuma and Kock.
