India got off to a fantastic start in the three-match T20I series against South Africa, winning the first match by eight wickets in Thiruvananthapuram to grab a 1-0 lead in the series. In the first two overs, India's quick bowlers Arshdeep Singh and Deepak Chahar sent half of South Africa to the pavilion. In the same match, skipper Rohit Sharma took DRS at the request of Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav, but it proved to be incorrect.
South Africa's innings was short managed by Aidan Markram, who was removed for 25 runs in 25 balls. Indian players used to believe that they could have been out earlier as well.
Actually, on the third ball of the same over, Arshdeep Singh, who was delivering his third straight over after capturing three wickets in his first over, and Markram attempted to run the bat, but the ball went behind the wicket. He and wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant both had identical reactions when they realised the ball had passed but had not been caught. When skipper Rohit Sharma saw Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav fielding at cover and extra cover, they discussed using DRS.
However, after reviewing the first DRS replay, it was determined that there was no contact between the ball and the bat. In such a case, the players took their fielding positions oblivious to the hyper edge. When UltraEdge was spotted during this. It was also obvious that the ball was far from the bat and that there was no movement in UltraEdge. Virat Kohli was spotted beaming after this since he knew Rohit had accepted the review only at his instruction, as he and Surya were keeping a tight eye on the batter.
