The third T20I against South Africa in Indore turned out to be a nightmare for Team India bowlers. The likes of Deepak Chahar, Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Siraj all proved to be expensive as South Africa piled on a massive 227/3. India, who had already clinched the T20I series, lost the third and final game by 49 runs as they were bowled out for 178.
Tempers were high in the Indian bowling innings as the Rilee Rossouw, Quinton de Kock and David Miller pulverised Rohit Sharma’s side. Chahar, who bowled economically in the first couple of overs, was clobbered for 24 runs in final over – including three successive sixes by Miller. The Chennai Super Kings pacer lost his cool at Siraj and was seen abusing him when the latter caught Miller on the boundary but stepped on to the rope.
The incident occurred when Siraj was fielding at the long off position on the boundary line in the 20th over of the South African innings. It looked like Chahar had limited Miller’s destructive ability in the final over as Siraj was set to take an easy catch. However, the Indian bowler was not aware of the boundary rope behind him and stepped onto it by mistake.
