The third test match is being played between India and South Africa in Cape Town. Where in the 52nd over of the Indian innings, there was a lot of drama on the wicket of captain Virat Kohli. In fact, Dane Olivier, doing the 52nd over, threw the fourth ball outside the leg stump, on which Kohli tried to play a flick but the shot was not hit and the ball went to the wicketkeeper. The African team made a strong appeal for the keeper catch. The umpire gave a not, after which Dean Elgar took a review.

The South African players were happy to see a slight movement at the ultra-edge in replays, but the third umpire said that the ball did not make contact with the bat and the ball had hit the Thai pad and went to the keeper. There was a gap between Virat’s bat and ball, which saved Kohli and the hosts lost their review. At that time the Indian Test captain was batting at 39.
