Virat Kohli saying “whole country is against us boys…” – Playon99 News



Well, who doesn’t know Virat Kohli as an outspoken personality. This time around, the cricketer captain found a new way of expressing himself to show his dismay on the third day of the series-decisive third Test against South Africa at Newlands in Cape Town on Thursday.

India, chasing their maiden Test series win in South Africa, was bowled out for 198 in the second innings. Early wickets were needed by the visiting team to defend 212 runs against the Proteas. Mohammed Shami gave the opening wicket by dismissing Aiden Markram in the 8th over.

But, soon the situation had to be changed sometime. Dean Elgar found a perfect partner in Keegan Pietersen as he added 78 runs from 134 balls for the second wicket before the South Africa captain was dismissed by Jasprit Bumrah at the stroke of stump.

Elgar, who chased down South Africa in the second Test, also seemed to have benefitted from the controversial DRS call bowled by Ravichandran Ashwin in the 21st over. Umpire Marais Erasmus and the Indian players were confident that Offi had trapped Elgar in front, but replays showed the ball bouncing over the wicket. Initially, it seemed so dead that Elgar had actually started to walk. But technology put him in the clutches of Indians.

After this Virat Kohli was addressing the issue in his own style. He kicked the ground in disgust and then spoke to the stump microphone.

Another Indian player was heard saying:

“Whole country is against eleven players.” Another one added, “Broadcasters are here to make money boys”.

Even Ashwin was seen on the mic of the stumps. On the other hand, the former India batsman,

Wasim Jaffer resolved the issue to a great extent by saying:

“You know how they say technology is 98% accurate. Well today we saw the other 1%,” he wrote in a Twitter post”

The similar kind of glimpse was seen during test Test match when the 33-year-old cricketer was seen having a heated argument with on-field umpire Marais Erasmus. Virat Kohli was furious with the veteran umpire after Indian pacer Mohammed Shami was issued an official warning for landing in the danger zone after bowling the ball.

As expected, the Indian captain didn’t like the on-field umpire’s decision, but initially, he didn’t say anything and just shook his head. However, his reaction completely changed after seeing the replay of Shami’s follow-through on the big screen. Replays showed that Shami had not landed in the danger zone and the umpire was a bit harsh in his decision. Angered by this, Kohli went to Erasmus and pointed to the big screen and expressed his displeasure over the decision.

On closing day 3, the Proteas were at 101/2 (29.4) and needed 111 more runs.
