The Day 3 of series-decider between South Africa and India produced some heated action. With South Africa chasing a target of 212 runs, they had a huge challenge in front of them against a lethal Indian bowling line-up. However, after the dismissal of Aiden Markram, the duo of Dean Elgar and Keegan Petersen notched up a crucial partnership.
There were quite a few hits and misses happening in the middle but the home side were somehow surviving, while adding runs at a steady pace. But Virat Kohli ensured that it would not be a walk in the park which turned out to be the case in last match.
Making his presence felt in Cape Town, Team India captain was continuously involved in a banter with his counterpart. In one of the moments, Kohli was caught saying, “Unbelievable! Just after man of the match performance in the last game. Running from Jasprit!”
Just when Elgar might have suggested him to stop, Kohli said, ““Running away from Jasprit. Chirping for 13 years Dean, you are going to keep me quiet.” He added, “We all know who wanted the Johannesburg Test to get called off in 2018.”

The whole banter was caught on stump mic and the footage of the same is going viral on social media. Dean Elgar was eventually dismissed on final ball of the day as South Africa ended Day 3 at 101/2.
