India captain Virat Kohli said on Friday his side had “moved on” after the controversy over an overturned decision in their Third Test defeat to South Africa, to lose the series 2-1, at Newlands. Kohli, 33, and two teammates were caught on the stump mic complaining after local captain Dean Elgar survived scrutiny after receiving the leg before the wicket at a crucial stage on the third afternoon . “I have no comment to make,” he told a press conference after the seven-wicket defeat in Cape Town.

“We understood what happened on the pitch and people on the outside don’t know if we had picked up three wickets there, which probably would have been the game-changing moment.”

Vice-captain KL Rahul and bowler Ravichandran Ashwin were also heard on the microphone.

“The reality of the situation is that we haven’t applied enough pressure on them for longer periods of time,” Kohli said.

“This moment seems very nice and very exciting to make a controversy out of it, but honestly, I’m not interested in making a controversy.

“It’s only been a while and we moved on and kept focusing on the game and trying to pick up wickets.”

Host broadcaster SuperSport meanwhile said it had no control over the Decision Review System (DRS) used in the series.

“SuperSport takes note of the comments of some members of the Indian cricket team,” he told TBEN.

“Hawk-Eye is an independent, ICC-accredited service provider and its technology has been accepted for many years as an integral part of DRS.

“SuperSport has no control over Hawk-Eye technology.”


Match referee Andy Pycroft and the International Cricket Council have yet to say whether any disciplinary action will be taken against Kohli, Rahul and Ashwin for their roles in the incident.
