Former Indian cricketer Saba Karim feels that there was no need for Indian players’ stump mic outburst during Day 3 of the Cape Town Test against South Africa after Dean Elgar survived with the help of a controversial DRS decision.

The controversy took place on Day 3 of the third Test in 21st over of South Africa’s second innings when Dean Elgar was given out LBW by on-field umpire Marias Erasmus after the ball struck him right in front of the stumps.

However, Elgar opted for a review and the decision was overturned after the replay showed that the ball went over the leg stumps.

After the decision was changed Indian players were frustrated and they passed some nasty remarks at broadcasters using the stump mic.

Speaking on Khelneeti’s YouTube channel, Saba Karim said that there was a lapse in concentration after the incident occurred which benefited the Proteas team.

“There was no need for it. DRS has been introduced so that it can help players. At times, you might feel that a batter is out, but you cannot argue with technology. There was a lapse in concentration after the whole incident. The focus should have been on the match. Accusing the broadcaster of partiality simply doesn’t suit the Indian team,” he said.

Meanwhile, former Indian spinner Nikhil Chopra feels that the Indian red-ball captain Virat Kohli will be reprimanded for his actions. He added that a player like Kohli should avoid crossing the line as he is the role model for several young players. He stated:

“ Virat Kohli will be reprimanded for his actions. It happened because there are a lot of emotions involved as India look to win this Test. I don’t think a player should lose his temper like this. Virat Kohli wears his heart on his sleeve and that’s how he plays. Looking at his stature, he shouldn’t look to cross the line, as he is a role model for many,” he stated.
