South Africa tried an experiment with their ODI squad and handed the reins to two-match veteran Aiden Markram. But the story didn’t change and their batting looked thinner without Faf du Plessis.

Team India about to take the 2-0 lead

Virat Kohli won the toss and inserted opposition’s batsmen into bat, who handed a debut cap to Khaya Zondo while Tabraiz Shamsi replaced Andile Phehlukwayo in the squad.

Indian wrist-spin duo of Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav ran through the South African batsmen as India needed just 119 runs to score in order to take a 2-0 lead in this six-match series.

However, a bizarre incident took place in the chase as the umpires decided to take lunch when India need just 2 runs to win. Kohli tried to have a chat with the umpires but in cricket, as they say, “rules are rules” and the finally the players had to get out of the turf for the lunch.

Here is the video of the incidence:
