The weird incident occurred in the 128th over of South Africa innings on Day 2 as wicket-keeper batsman Sinethemba Qeshile was batting. The bowl apparently missed the stumps due to height but Chahar was adamant that it was out. The umpires soon had a chat with the spinner who ended up conceding 125 runs for just one wicket as South Africa posted 509/7 on the scoreboard.
