IND vs SA LIVE: Gambhir’s brutal attack on Kohli- Virat Kohli’s angry reactions at a DRS call in Cape Town has disappointed former India cricketer Gautam Gambhir. He felt that India Test captain cannot be a role model for youngsters. Follow India vs South Africa LIVE updates on InsideSport.IN

“Kohli is very immature. It’s worst for an Indian captain to say like this in stumps. By doing this you will never be an idol to youngsters,” Gautam Gambhir said as quoted by Star Sports.

Proteas skipper Dean Elgar survived in the 21st over of the 4th innings when South Africa were 60/1. R Ashwin’s delivery hit the pads of Elgar who looked absolutely plummed.

On-field umpire Marais Erasmus gave SA captain Elgar lbw out but the decision was overturned after review as ball-tracking showed the ball going over the stumps.

Virat Kohli was fired at the decision: “Focus on your team while they shine the ball. Not just the opposition. Trying to catch people all the time.”

Even vice-captain KL Rahul couldn’t hold his composure: “It’s the whole country against 11 guys.”

Ashwin then blasted the broadcaster: “You should find better ways to win, SuperSport.”

Former SA skipper Shaun Pollock too felt India went overboard with their appeal.

“India was desperate to get the wicket and the emotion overflowed after that. The ball pitched in line and bounced and Elgar got a good stride forward. With that stride, it was going to be close,” said Pollock.

“Indians went over the top. Hawk-eye is something you rely on for decision making. It’s an independent body. They do their level best with everything they have got. They have got their own cameras. I can understand the disappointment because they wanted the wicket but I think they went over the top a little bit.

“Hawk eye, it’s scientific. They got each little point that they plot. And that’s how they work out where it goes. That’s a lot more scientific than any of us. We rely on them to make the decision and that’s what they have done.”
