Shami bowled the right line and length to trap Markram in front of the wicket.

Markram was looking for runs after failing both innings of the first Test at Centurion and his dry patch continued in his first innings at Johannesburg as well.

Shami, who completed 200 Test wickets in the first match of the series and finished the match with 8 wickets, delivered the perfect delivery to an out-of-form batsman.

Markram asked his captain Dean Elgar if he should take the DRS, but as the non-striker umpire was absolutely convinced that Markram was right in front of the wickets when the ball hit his pads.

Former India captain and legendary batsman Sunil Gavaskar mentioned in the commentary that for a batsman like Markram, who takes an off-stump guard, it is very difficult to escape the LBW appeal if he misses the line of the straight ball.


India were bundled out for 202 earlier, with Marco Jensen taking 4 wickets, while Kagiso Rabada and Duane Olivier struck thrice for the hosts.

Stand-in captain KL Rahul made 50 while Ashwin added a useful 46 runs down the order. Virat Kohli has been ruled out of the match due to a cramp in his upper back.
