WATCH : Jansen clearly oversteps with an outrageous no-ball


Opting to bat first, India faced early setbacks with the dismissals of Rohit Sharma and Rishabh Pant, followed by Suryakumar Yadav within the first 45-run powerplay.

However, Axar Patel and Virat Kohli steadied the ship with a solid 72-run partnership for the fourth wicket, setting a stable platform for the lower middle order. By the 18th over, India had reached 150/4 on the scoreboard, prompting the Proteas to intensify their efforts.

In the 19th over, Jansen bowled a superb wide yorker to Kohli, who missed his attempted drive. Quinton de Kock, the wicketkeeper, initially applauded Jansen’s delivery execution, only for the TV umpire to intervene and signal a no-ball after reviewing the footage.

De Kock’s moment of praise quickly turned into disappointment as replays clearly showed Jansen’s foot well over the popping crease, resulting in an embarrassing front-foot no-ball.

Such glaring front-foot errors are uncommon on such a significant stage, evoking memories of similar incidents, like Mohammad Amir’s in the past, which resurfaced in discussions across Twitter.
