The second Test between India and South Africa has been action-packed and controversial. After two days of play, the game is even, with India leading by 58 runs at stumps on the second day.

Stand-in skipper KL Rahul was involved in a heated argument with Dean Elgar after his dismissal.

Rahul was out, edging Marco Jansen to the slips after reaching only eight runs in the second innings. The Indian captain was on his way back to the pavilion when he appeared to hear something from the South African players in a huddle. Rahul appeared to be unhappy with what he had heard and is heard yelling something back to the hosts, sparking a response from Elgar as well.

Rahul was caught in the second slip, but out was not given immediately. He did not just walk away and let the umpires examine if the catch was taken cleanly with the assistance of the third umpire.
