Former Indian cricket team starter Gautam Gambhir believes Virat Kohli’s reaction to the DRS decision during the third Test against South Africa was immature. He rebuked Kohli and said that you can never become a role model of youth like this.

Let us tell you that Captain Virat Kohli, Vice Captain KL Rahul and Offline R Ashwin made disparaging comments on the stump mic regarding officiating and technique after DRS’s controversial decision not to hand LBW to South African Captain Dean Elgar .

Gautam Gambhir told Star Sports that it was very bad. The way Kohli reacted to the stump microphone was immature. You can’t expect that from an international captain, an Indian captain.

He further said that in the first Test, Mayank Agarwal was also given life in this way, but the South African captain gave no such reaction. He said, the technology is not in your hands. In Mayank Agarwal’s case, it seemed like he was out, but Elgar didn’t react that way.

Gambhir said that you can say that she is an emotional player, but this kind of reaction is exaggerated. In such a situation, you cannot be a role model. No young cricketer would want to see this kind of reaction, especially from the Indian captain.

The former starter said, whatever the outcome of this test match, but that is not expected from the test captain who has been captaining the team for so long. Hopefully Rahul Dravid will talk to him, because the kind of captain that Dravid was, he never gives that reaction.

In reality, India gave a target of 212 runs to South Africa to win. After this, India got the first hit, but then Dean Elgar and Keegan Pietersen stood in front of the Indian bowlers. Meanwhile, in a total of 60 runs in the over 21, the umpire at the Marais Erasmus field gave Dean Elgar out lbw against Ravichandran Ashwin, but Elgar took the DRS and then the third umpire did not give him out, while the screen it was clear. It could be seen that the ball was on the line of impact and launch and the original decision was also out. However, the ball did not hit the stumps. Kohli was furious at this.

Following this decision, Ashwin stepped up to the microphone and said that Supersport does not do this. At the same time, Captain Kohli also got angry. The Indian captain walked up to the microphone and said to focus on his team. Don’t just focus on the opposing team. All the time trying to catch people.
