Leg-spinner Rahul Chahar is known for his occasional outburst and has at times directed it towards the batsmen after picking the wicket. On Thursday, though, he had an altercation with the umpire while playing for India A on the tour of South Africa.
Rahul Chahar is part of the India A side which took on South Africa A in a 4-day game at Mangaung Oval, Bloemfontein.
On the last delivery of the 128th over of South Africa A’s innings, Rahul Chahar, bowling from round the wicket, hit batsman Sinethemba Qeshile on the pads., and went up with a huge LBW appeal, which was turned down by the umpire, who also suggested that the ball had pitched outside leg.
Clearly unhappy with the decision, the 22-year-old bowler threw his sunglasses on the ground in anger. The umpire walked towards Rahul Chahar to talk to him when the bowler argued vociferously with the official.
