Fans on Twitter lashed out at Indian batter Ajinkya Rahane for taking a DRS review after edging the ball in the first innings of the third Test against South Africa in Cape Town.
Ajinkya Rahane’s inconsistent run with the bat continued in the first innings of the ongoing third Test against South Africa in Cape Town. After smashing a gusty half-century in the second Test, many expected the batter to continue the momentum and score some runs for his team.
But this wasn’t the case as he was dismissed for 9 runs that left Team India tumbling at 116/4. Rahane during the 43rd over of the innings tried to dab down the delivery from Kagiso Rabada to the leg side but only managed to edge it to the wicketkeeper.
After being given out, Ajinkya Rahane reviewed the decision and looked very confident and it seemed that decision would be overturned but the ultra edge showed a clear spike as the ball went past the bat, making contact with it and the batter had to take the long walk back to the pavilion.
Here’s the dismissal of Ajinkya Rahane:
