Day 3 of the 2nd Test between South Africa and India has produced a thrilling game so far. From heated exchange to loud appeals, we have seen it all in day's play. Umpires have also been on their toes due to the heated game and it seems out Marais Erasmus had a lot to take of. The umpire during South Africa's innings jokingly calls out to Indian slip fielders for appealing too loudly in every second delivery.
During the 12th over of the innings, Shardul Thakur was making the ball talk and was troubling the South African batters. After appealing on the first two deliveries in his previous over, the bowler finally got the wicket of Markram in the third delivery. The pacer in the 12th over was also troubling Dean Elgar and the fielders along with the bowler appealed a couple more times. After the end of the over, Erasmus jokingly said, "You guys are giving me bloody heartache every over".
