New Delhi : India’s young leg spinner Rahul Chahar was seen getting angry on the field as he threw his sunglasses after an umpire turned down his LBW appeal during a Test match between India A and South Africa A.
The incident happened on Day 2 of the match on Wednesday. On the fifth ball of the 128th over of the South Africa A innings, Chahar, bowling around the stumps, foxed right-handed batter Sinethemba Qeshile with a flatter delivery. Qeshile tried to play it off the backfoot but ended failed to make contact. The ball rapped onto his pads and Chahar went up in a big appeal. Seeing the umpire shaking his head, the leg-spinner appealed again before throwing his sunglasses away in frustration as the umpire did not change his mind.
