India were controversially made to wait to claim victory in the second one-day international against South Africa after lunch was called at Centurion with the visitors needing just two to win.
Kohli and Dhawan stunned by lunch call
Rather than start the 20th over of India's reply on Sunday, the umpires called lunch, much to the surprise of incumbent batsmen Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan. Instead the pair will return after the 40-minute break to secure a 2-0 lead in the six-match series, with the tourists boasting nine wickets in hand.
After winning the toss India set about limiting South Africa to just 118 in their innings, spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav sharing eight wickets on a slow track.

Without AB de Villiers and Faf du Plessis the Proteas were led by Aiden Markram, but what should have been a memorable day turned into a nightmare for the 23-year-old, who was out for eight.
It went from bad to worse when India began their chase, their innings starting before the lunch break due to South Africa only lasting 32.2 overs.
Kohli and Dhawan moved them into position to claim victory, only to be made to wait by the surprise decision, which came when only one more over was needed to make it a match.
