The DRS was not available for a large part of the South African innings during the third T20I and it denied India the wicket of David Miller in the 9th over. India beat South Africa by 106 runs in the third T20I to level the series. Skipper Suryakumar Yadav scored his fourth T20I century, spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja then got the South African batsmen into a tangle on the spin friendly Wanderers pitch.

Kuldeep ended up picking five wickets while Jadeja got two but he could have got a third wicket in a moment that, at the time, looked like one that could decide the match. The two sets of players had been informed by the umpires that the decision review system had become temporarily unavailable after the seventh over in South Africa’s 202-run chase.

It was because of a technical glitch from local broadcaster Super Sport. Its effect was felt a few minutes later. Jadeja was hit for two sixes by the in-form David Miller but there was then a loud appeal for caught behind off the fourth ball. The umpire shook his head but the Indians seemed quite confident and seemed keen to take the review, only to be reminded by the former that DRS is still unavailable.

Jadeja was himself captain at the time with Suryakumar being off the field with an injury and he would be heard asking the umpire about the DRS. Replays then showed that there was a clear deflection off Miller’s bat before the ball nestled into the gloves of wicketkeeper Jitesh Sharma.

As one would expect, fans weren’t too happy and some of them came down heavily on SuperSport. Notably, during India’s last tour to South Africa in 2021-22, the Indian cricketers were quite vocal against Super Sport. Then Captain Virat Kohli, senior spinner Ravichandran Ashwin and batsman KL Rahul used the stump microphone to voice their disappointment when a number of DRS calls went against India during the Test series.
