India and South Africa are looking horns with each other in the second T20I of the three-match series at the Holkar Stadium in India. An incident took place in the 16th over as the Indian fast bowler, Deepak Chahar teased Tristan Stubbs of running the latter out at the non-striker’s end.
Earlier in the game the Indian skipper, Rohit Sharma won the toss and decided to bowl first citing the batting paradise. While, the Proteas skipper, Temba Bavuma made just one change in the XI as Dwaine Pretorius came in for Anrich Nortje, India made as many as three changes as KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, and Arshdeep Singh made way for Shreyas Iyer, Mohammed Siraj, and Umesh Yadav.
Quinton de Kock and Rilee Rossouw kept on smashing the Indian bowlers all across the ground, despite Temba Bavuma falling for 3 runs. De Kock made 68 runs in 43 balls with 4 fours and 6 sixes and added 89 runs with Rossouw for the second wicket. After De Kock got runout, South Africa promoted Tristan Stubbs up the order and he teed off instantly.
Just before bowling his first ball of the 16th over Deepak Chahar tried running out Tristian Stubbs as he’s backing top outside the crease. Chahar doesn’t run out the batter in the end, and made eye contact with Stubbs as if to say ‘here’s a warning’.

It was an interesting incident as recently a lot of noise was made on social media when Deepti Sharma ran out England’s Charlie Dean in the final ODI between India women and England women at Lord’s, winning India the match and the series 3-0, which led to Deepti Sharma getting subjected to a humongous amount of criticism and to the Indian team as well.
But the India all-rounder and team received lots of support as well, especially from MCC, the custodians of laws, who moved the dismissal from ‘unfair play’ to run out in the rule book.
