Fans Came Out In Support Of KL Rahul After His Heated Exchange With Dean Elgar

The Indian cricket team is currently locking its horns with South Africa in the ongoing second Test match in Johannesburg and the game is turning out to be an interesting one. On the second day of the Johannesburg Test between India and South Africa, the fans witnessed a heated exchange between both the skippers KL Rahul and Dean Elgar.

The verbal duel between KL Rahul and Dean Elgar took place while KL Rahul, who looked visibly unhappy was spotted making his way back after getting dismissed off a Marco Jansen delivery in the second innings of the ongoing second Test match.

The Indian side started the second innings with a shaky note as the stand-in skipper and opener KL Rahul was dismissed early in the inning. KL Rahul could only manage to score eight runs in the second innings and was dismissed after he nicked the ball to the second slip as Aiden Markram dived in front to grab the catch.

Rahul decided to go upstairs for the review and the replays gave an impression of the ball being under Markram’s palms and it was enough to convince the third umpire, who gave the decision in Proteas’ favor. After getting dismissed, KL Rahul had some heated exchange of words with Proteas skipper as he walked off the field shaking his head in disbelief.

The video of the same has been going viral on the internet. Here, watch the video:
