On Thursday, Virat Kohli‘s spicy sled caught on the stump-mic to his South African counterpart Dean Elgar.

Kohli can listen taunting Elgar about ‘running’ away from Jasprit Bumrah’s bowling, evidently because the Proteas keeper took a single off the remaining ball of the earlier over. The Indian captain also indicated that his South African compatriot couldn’t keep him quiet.

Kohli also respondent Elgar of calling off the 3rd Test of India’s last journey of South Africa in 2018. Pundits had tagged the Wanderers pitch ‘dangerous’ because of its changeable bounce, but India wanted to remain. Later the visitors ultimately won by 63 runs; Elgar said that the game should have been called off.

 

Here’s what Kohli said on Wednesday:

“Unbelievable. Just after a Man of the Match performance in the last game, running from Jasprit… Chirping for 13 years Dean, you think you gonna keep me quiet? We all know who wanted the match called off in Joburg 2018. We all know that.”

Elgar took many bodily blows in the 2018 Test, securing a brilliant 240-ball 86 in losing grounds. Kohli has often welcomed that win as the accelerator behind India’s rise as a Test giant over the next 3-years.

However, Elgar got his revenge 3-years later, leading South Africa to a stunning 7-wicket victory in the 2nd Test of the ongoing series at the same place. He secured an unbeaten 96 off 188 balls to level the series 1-1.

Dean Elgar is solid again against Virat Kohli-led India’s struggle.

India got clear of Aiden Markram’s initial for a 22-ball 16. But Elgar and Keegan Petersen have because they stood solid. Elgar got a huge pardon on 22 when Ravichandran Ashwin caught him in front for an lbw. The judge gave it out, but it was upset after Hawkeye showed the ball vanished the stumps.
