Before this incident, Jansen had bombarded Bumrah with a flurry of bouncers, however, the Indian pacer swung his bat at every delivery which seemed to have irked the South African. Jasprit Bumrah scored seven runs including a massive six before he departed.
Jansen, who made his debut in Centurion, has been an effective weapon for the Proteas. He picked up three wickets in the second innings, as did Lungi Ngidi and Kagiso Rabada.
Currently, the Indian team are looking to defend their lead of 240 runs, and at the time of writing, South Africa were 71/1 with Aiden Markram having already departed after scoring 31 runs.
