India cautioned for DRS outburst: Report

Match officials have not filed any formal charges against the Indians for their words after a DRS decision went against them

India skipper Virat Kohli and his teammates have been let go with a caution by match referee Andy Pycroft for their on-field outburst following the DRS verdict which overturned the LBW decision against Dean Elgar during the Third Test against South Africa.

During the final session of the third day of series decider in Centurion, Ravichandran Ashwin trapped South Africa captain which was given out by the on-field umpire. Elgar opted for the DRS where the ball tracking showed that the ball was missing the stumps much to the bemusement of the Indian players.

R Ashwin was heard lashing out: "You should find better ways to win, SuperSport", while teammate KL Rahul was overheard saying: "Whole country playing against eleven guys."

Kohli was seen walking up to the stumps and saying: "Focus on your team as well when they shine the ball... not just the opposition! Trying to catch people all the time. Certainly conducting a fair game here DRS (sic)."

According to a report by ESPNCricinfo, Indian players have escaped formal sanction as their words were directed at the technology and not anyone officiating the match.

In the post-match press conference, Kohli refused to comment on the incident.

"I have no comment to make. I understood what happened on the field and people on the outside don't know exactly what goes on the field. So for me to try and justify what we did on the field and say 'we got carried away... If we would have charged up and picked up three wickets there, that could have been probably the moment that could change the game."
