India legend Sunil Gavaskar was disappointed after Yuzvendra Chahal bowled two no balls, one of which cost them a wicket during the fourth ODI against South Africa in Johannesburg on Saturday.

“For me, it was that no-ball where David Miller was clean bowled and the way he recovered from it. That, for me, was the turning point,” Gavaskar said to Sony Ten 1 after the match

“Till then, India seemed to be in control, they had also seen the back of AB de Villiers, who was batting well. When Miller was struggling to read Yuzvendra Chahal, India were certainly in the driver’s seat,” Gavaskar added.

Gavaskar also said that will the amount of technology available these days, bowlers shouldn’t be overstepping.

“I will be perfectly honest. In modern day cricket, with all the technology available, nobody should be bowling no balls. One can understand bowling a wide, down the leg side because that is a very strict interpretation. There should ideally bowl no wides on the offside also,” the little master went on to add.
