South African bowler Rabada sledged India captain Virat Kohli during the third ODI played at the Newlands Cricket Ground in Capetown.
Verbal spats between Kohli and Rabada have been a hallmark of the ongoing tour and something similar was witnessed in the 3rd ODI. Rabada started using foul words against the Indian skipper after the on-field umpire adjudged the batsman LBW. And as soon as the umpire raised his finger, Kohli reviewed the decision.
Rabada then walked towards Kohli and said something. The India batting star, who too is known for his aggressiveness, just gave him a stare.
Kohli, however, had the last laugh in the incident. The on-field umpire had to overturn his decision after the replays showed that there was a huge inside edge.
Rabada had bowled length delivery on middle and leg which Kohli tried to flick, but could not time it properly, and the ball after taking an inside hit him onto his pads.
