Mohammed Shami got the ball to skid from a good length into Markram, who tried to defend in vain and got rapped plumb on the pads. He consulted his skipper, Dean Elgar, about the referral but did not receive an encouraging answer. The captain's call was justified as replays revealed the opener was trapped dead in front. Markram departed for 7, leaving South Africa in a spot of bother at 14/1. They have been struggling to stitch opening partnerships against India, registering only a couple of double-digit stands in the last dozen innings.
