Indian skipper Virat Kohli lost his cool in the 22nd over of the third and final Test at Newlands as the decision against Dean Elgar’s wicket was overturned by the DRS.
Ravichandran Ashwin trapped Dean Elgar in front and the umpire raised his finger as it looked plumb. However, after giving it a long thought, the South African captain opted for a review. The replays showed that despite the ball hitting Elgar below the knee-roll, the ball was going over the stumps.
The entire Indian cricket team along with skipper Virat Kohli were stunned by the decision. KL Rahul, the vice-captain, looked disappointed as well as he accused the third umpires of favouring the home team while Virat Kohli also behaved furiously on the field.

“You should find better ways to win Supersport,” R Ashwin said, taking a dig at the broadcasters.
“The whole country is playing against eleven guys,” – KL Rahul said.
Virat Kohli then walked up to the stumps and said: “Focus on your team as well and not just the opposition. Always trying to catch people”.
