Match ball deceived South African players

While Indian batsmen continued to frustrate South African players on day 2, it was the match ball which had some more fun with the visitors. The incident happened on the fifth ball of 129th over of Indian innings.

The ball went for four byes surpassing the wicket keeper and that settled between the advertisment lables on the filed. It was Vernon Philander, chasing the ball and he lost the sight of the ball. Along with the reserve players of his team he searched the ball inbetween the covers that were held outside the boundary line.

A cameraman too joined with them and they all were clueless where the ball was. Finally Aiden Markram came in rescue for them and found the ball inbetween the labels.
