When the Indian cricket team were just 2 runs away from taking a 2-0 lead in the series against South Africa, the umpires decided to take the lunch break even when the players from both the team requested for an extra over. Indian fans lashed out by tweeting their opinions about the incident.
Here are tweets from the game:

Few balls into the game and this happened!
massive luck first up for de Kock, de Kock rode the bounce and defended it extremely late, the ball bounced past him and then spun back towards the stumps, just about hit the leg-stump, but the bails didn't fall#2ndODI— Syed Zishan (@Syed_zishan_) February 4, 2018
Everyone knows who is the winner of this contest!

Rohit Sharma: The synonym for consistency! :P
How ridiculous is this!
Scenes if this had happened! :P
As India has batted for just 19 overs, IF it rains heavily during the lunch break and no further play is possible, the match will be a no result. Archaic rules for Lunch and DLS. 😂😂😂😂😂😂 #SAvInd— Aditya (@forwardshortleg) February 4, 2018
