Commentators make the game of cricket interesting with their analytical skills and game reading ability. Their insights make the viewers look at the game in a different way. But sometimes the commentators make mistakes too. A similar sort of incident happened during the 1st ODI between India and South Africa on Wednesday.

Sanjay Bangar, who is a part of the Star Sports commentary panel, made a big mistake while commentating during the game. The former India batting coach forgot to switch off his mic while talking to someone from the backend team. During India’s innings, after 39 overs were completed, the broadcasters showed the scorecard. Sanjay Bangar thought he could utilize that time to get the technical details right and talked about the same to someone from the backend team. But little did he know that the full conversation was heard while the broadcasters showed the scorecard. “Abhi bhai lazy pe to nhi hu na bhai, check kr le,” Bangar was heard saying.

Listen to the conversation here:

India lost the match by 31 runs 

Talking about the match, South Africa continued their fine form and defeated India in the first ODI as well after clinching the Test series. The Proteas captain won the toss and chose to bat first. Despite losing three early wickets, South Africa posted 296 on the board. Captain Temba Bavuma and Rassie van der Dussen put on a batting masterclass and scored centuries. Meanwhile, KL Rahul and Co. once again succumbed to the middle-order inexperience and lost the game by 31 runs.

India started really well despite losing their captain in the 9th over. Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli put on a 92-run stand to put India in a commanding position. Dhawan scored almost run-a-ball 79  before falling to Keshav Maharaj while Virat Kohli scored a fine 51 off 63 balls. But as soon as the duo departed, it was all South Africa’s game to lose which they did not. India lost 5 wickets for 33 runs and left too much to do for Shardul Thakur who scored his maiden half-century (50* off 43 balls).
