We all know who wants canceled games in Johannesburg 2018: Virat Kohli mocks Dean Elgar
Virat Kohli made a big run out of Dean Elgar on day three as he came out chasing the overall score in front of South Africa. Elgar’s full-time Test captaincy was short-lived, and it was one of the biggest series of his tenure.
The India captain also hinted that his fellow South African couldn’t keep him quiet while taunting him for fleeing Jasprit Bumrah after taking a ball on the last ball of the last match.
Not only that, Kohli even went back to 2018 and taunted Elgar that everyone knew it was him who wanted to cancel the third Test of the series in Johannesburg. Pundits have labelled Rangers’ pitch as “dangerous” due to a shaky rebound, but India wants to continue. Elgar later said the game should be called off after the visitors eventually won by 63 points.
“Unbelievable. Running from Jasprit just after the best player performance of the last game…tweeted Dean ’13, do you think you’ll keep me quiet? We all know who wants to be canceled at Johannesburg 2018 Games. We all know that,” Corley sled Elgar.
