Watch: Rohit Sharma Baffled By Umpire's Decision To Not Give A Wide, Asks For DRS
Rohit Sharma was not pleased with the umpire's decision to not give a leg-side wide, and he signalled for a review, and hence Ravi Shastri, who was on air at that time, was left in splits.
Rohit Sharma-led Team India beat South Africa on Sunday in the second T20I in Guwahati to seal an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series. In the match, Proteas skipper Temba Bavuma won the toss and opted to bowl first. The Indian side did not make any changes to their playing XI while South Africa brought in Lungi Ngidi. KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma came out to bat with intent, and the duo looked to register boundaries at regular intervals.
On the fourth ball of the second over, Wayne Parnell bowled a length ball which swung down the leg-side, however the on-field umpire Virender Sharma did not signal for a wide. Rohit was not pleased with the call, and he signalled for a review, and hence Ravi Shastri, who was on air at that time, was left in splits.
Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul were in fine form as the duo put on 57 runs inside six overs for the hosts in the second T20I. Rohit was finally dismissed by Keshav Maharaj, but it was not before the Indian skipper had scored 43.
KL Rahul reached his half-century, and then Suryakumar Yadav also smashed a fifty, and their efforts, along with good knocks from Virat Kohli and Dinesh Karthik helped India reach 237/3.
In reply, South Africa put on a good show, making 221/3, but fell short by 16 runs as David Miller's majestic century went in vain.
