India and South Africa moved to Centurion for the 2nd ODI. Indian captain Virat Kohli won the toss and elected to bowl. Amla and De Kock began cautiously and they never lost the wicket for the first 8 overs. Then, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar grabbed Amla.
South Africa bundled out for 118 as Chahal takes his first 5-wicket haul. India lost Rohit Sharma and was cruising towards the target. But Referee called off the match for lunch when India just needed 2 runs to win. This became a huge topic of discussion as common sense matters more than guidelines.
Check out some of the Twitter reactions,
