SA vs IND: SuperSport responds to allegations of DRS by Indian players;
SA vs IND: SuperSport, the host broadcaster released a statement on DRS controversy. It had no influence over the DRS employed in the South African-India test series.
Elgar chose a DRS call to appeal the ruling. It resulted in the decision being reversed. The ball would have gone past the stumps, according to Hawk-Eye, a ball-tracking device.
As a result, Elgar’s time at the crease was extended. As they shouted their rage near the stump microphone, Indian players were against the decision.
“Focus on your team as well when they shine the ball, not just the opposition. Trying to catch people all the time,” said a frustrated Virat Kohli coming near the stumps.
Indian vice-captain KL Rahul then was heard the next second.
“The whole country against us 11.”
It was Ashwin who mentioned the broadcaster’s name.

In a brief statement issued to AFP, the broadcaster said: “SuperSport notes comments made by certain members of the Indian cricket team.”
“Hawk-Eye is an independent service provider. It was approved by the ICC and their technology has been accepted for many years”
