Ind Vs Sa
India vs South Africa, 2nd Test: South Africa made a strong comeback on the third day of the Johannesburg Test. India were bowled out for 266 in the second innings with a target of 240. Despite limited resources, South Africa played an excellent game. However, Team India still has a chance. For this, the chances of success are plentiful if the wickets fall quickly at the start of the fourth day. Elgar’s wicket in particular is going to be crucial.
Pressure on South Africa if wickets fall ..
South Africa will be under pressure if the wicket falls quickly. The sooner Elgar took the wicket the better. Along with him the Temba Bauma wicket is also going to be very crucial. The home team does not have much depth in batting. So if Elgar and Bauma take wickets in the first half hour, there will be no obstacle for Team India to win.
Rishabh Pant Irresponsibility ..
Team India wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant was selected as his worst shot ever. At the crucial stage Pant demonstrated irresponsibility. No need to play such shots at a time like this. With Pant quickly joining the pavilion, the Indian team was unable to score big. It is not the norm for Pant to do so, as provoked by the South African fielders. It’s just Test cricket. With this, India now have to face the bowlers for victory.
Pujara, Rahane return to form
Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane scored half-centuries in India’s second innings. He also established a century partnership for the third wicket. The return of both of them to form is good news for Teamindia. But it would have been nice if their partnership had lasted longer. The Indian team is a huge scorer. We have to see what happens in today’s match.
