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,
Just 2 Runs Needed. Even 1 Ball Was Enough To Finish The Match But Now We'll Have To Wait For 40 Minutes Lunch Break. If Only Logic Ruled The Game Of Cricket.😒😡😒 #INDvSA #INDvsSA #SAvIND #SAvsIND 2nd ODI— Sir Ravindra Jadeja (@SirJadeja) February 4, 2018

WHAT WENT WRONG FOR SRH AND RIGHT FOR CSK WHAT WENT WRONG FOR SRH AND RIGHT FOR CSK In a Nail biting climax in first playoffs, It was CSK which romped home victorious to cruise into the finals of IPL-11 2018 for 7th time proving how successive their Franchisee has been. With regards to SRH, they concentrated more on bowling defending Low totals, with middle order failing abruptly in most of matches and the Management taking no action on rotating Players, Some deserving seen relaxing on the bench waiting for an opportunity.
