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

Bhuvaneshwar Kumar spill the beans India won against South Africa in the first T20I and Indian pacer Bhuvaneshwar Kumar scalped 5-Wickets and became the first Indian to take a fifer in ODI's, Tests, and T20I's. After Chahal, he became the only Indian to scalp fifer in T20I's.
