“I think it’s very important, you know when you want to win the series, want to keep your emotions under control. It’s obviously not good, you know a lot of people watching Test matches and series are young.” Morkel on Star Sports.
“Yeah, I thought we had to back up what’s happening on screen and that’s not a good look.”
The incident also had a huge impact on India’s morale as they conceded 35 runs in the next six overs.
Chopra concurred with his colleague, saying that shouting at the stump mic could put India “back to bite”.
“There are dangers of hitting the stump mic. You are breaking the fourth wall, sounds great but sometimes it comes back to bite you. Because, you have a right to express your dissent, but is it right? Way? I’m not 100% sure because Morne said there’s a lot of kids watching this game and they can really form an opinion about the game, drs, umpire”, he said.
He added, “In this game, umpires are sacred. That’s why they are umpires, not referees. This is the only game in which there are umpires.”
Despite the reverse decision, Elgar eventually lost his wicket at the hands of Jasprit Bumrah in the 30th over. Keegan Pietersen remains unbeaten and is approaching half-century. He scored 48 runs in 61 balls on the third day.
He will start batting on the fourth day and will hope to continue his stellar form.
