Cricket umpires need common sense

Rated 1.5 ICC needs to seriously think about it now. They need to advise their umpires to apply some common sense.
On 4th Feb 2018 @ Centurion, South Africa, umpires called for a lunch break when India was just 2 runs away from the victory. Instead of waiting for the game to be over they called for a lunch break.

In a bizarre incident, the umpires decided to call for lunch when India needed just two runs to win from 21 overs at Centurion on Sunday.

Play was already extended by four overs to make sure the match ends when India were batting on 93/1 after 15 overs. So why they could not wait for 2 more runs. I could not find any logic behind this decision.
