The South African media had good reason to bash the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and its anti-DRS stance.

 

On Sunday, Jacques Kallis looked in sublime touch before a poor decision by Rod Tucker did him in.

 

“It would have been better for Kallis and South Africa had they had DRS here, but, had they put their foot down and enforced their rights as the host to dictate the conditions…

 

The BCCI and the lack of DRS robbed us of watching what had the makings of a classic Kallis knock yesterday (Sunday), the sweetest of timing, the straightest of drives and the most powerful of punches,’ Kevin McCullum wrote in The Star. In the same paper, Stuart Hess branded the BCCI and its president, N Srinivasan, the villain of the Wanderers Test. “VILLAIN: The BCCI. Two Tests, Mr Srinivasan. Two?

 

You have robbed the South African public, Indian viewers, and the wider cricket-watching world of the opportunity of seeing a terrific series unfold. Your selfishness deserves censorship in India.

 

One can only hope the Indian public, advertisers and broadcasters realise what a detriment you have been to the game of cricket. Get out,” he wrote.
