ICC warns team India over the DRS Saga

Published on

ICC match referee Andy Pycroft has cautioned team India following players’ reaction over the Decision Review System (DRS) Saga in Cape Town.

It is being reported that Pycroft has told the team management that if such an incident is repeated then players will be sanctioned. ICC match referee Andy Pycroft had talks with the visitors about their conduct on the field but there was no official code of conduct was levied against Kohli and other team India players.

On the last session of Day 3, Elgar survived a very close LBW call. The Proteas skipper was given out by the on-field umpire, Marais Erasmus, after being trapped plumb in front by Ravichandran Ashwin. However, Elgar took the decision upstairs where replays showed that the ball had hit the left-hander below the knee, however, the hawk-eye displayed that the ball was going above the stumps. As soon as the decision was overturned by the third umpire, Indian test skipper Virat Kohli came near to the mic and said “Focus on your team as well when they shine the ball… not just the opposition! Trying to catch people all the time. Certainly conducting a fair game here DRS.” Vice-captain KL Rahul also joined in and said: “Whole country playing against eleven guys.”

Whereas Ravichandran Ashwin was heard saying, “You should find better ways to win, SuperSport”.

Kohli refused to dwell on the incident when asked about it during the post-match press conference on Friday. “I have no comment to make. I understood what happened on the field and people on the outside don’t know exactly what goes on the field. So for me to try and justify what we did on the field and say ‘we got carried away… If we would have charged up and picked up three wickets there, that could have been probably the moment that could change the game.”
