Centurion ODI: Lunch called with India needing two to win

India needed just two runs to win the second ODI of the six-match series against South Africa, but just then the umpires called lunch, halting the celebrations of the visitors.

Chasing down the lowest home target of a 119-run posted by South Africa, India reached 117 for the loss of one wicket before lunch.

Earlier, the wrist-spinner duo of Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav ripped through South African batting line-up as the two claimed eight wickets in all.

Chahal and Yadav finished with maiden five and three-wicket haul respectively.

Shikhar Dhawan and skipper Virat Kohli got into no fuss while chasing the target following the early departure of Rohit Sharma on 15.

Dhawan struck a half-century while Kohli was on 44 at the time of lunch.

But, the decision of calling lunch at the crucial moment, definitely gave people a chance to share humour on Twitter.
