South Africa won the first ODI by 27 runs on the back of a brilliant all-round performance by the team on January 27 (Friday). Meanwhile when the match was on with England batter Jason Roy at strike, a hilarious incident took place. Umpire Marais Erasmus who was stationed at the square leg looked disinterested as the batter played a delivery.
All this happened on first delivery of the 24th over when renowned umpire was spotted looking away as Anrich Nortje bowled the delivery to Roy.

The Twitter users were also quick to react to the video which has gone viral now. While some said that even the umpires are now not interested in ODI cricket, a few other talked about it as “Guthka supremacy”.
