SA v IND highlights today – Third freedom test day three from The Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg (South Africa) Friday 26th January 2018. Both teams scored almost equal runs in their first innings, now it could be a huge test for South Africa if India will reach above 150 in their second innings. But I don’t think the pitch will remain difficult for batsmen at day four or five. As time goes on the pitch will become batting friendly. Till day two India scored 49 runs with one wicket down in 17 overs which is a very good start for them,
India won the toss and elected to bat.
The Wanderers Test is now a one-innings shootout on a treacherous surface, and India have their noses well ahead, ending day two 42 ahead with nine wickets in hand. Hashim Amla put on a clinic on how to bat on a tough pitch, he got support in the form of 30s from nightwatchman Kagiso Rabada and Vernon Philander, but Japsrit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar combined to keep the first-innings deficit down to seven. If South Africa had a slender lead, they were also looking at the prospect of having to bat last on a pitch getting increasingly uneven to go with the seam movement. Awed with some of Virat Kohli’s stroke-play, the other half-centurion for India, Cheteshwar Pujara, said Kohli played some shots not many could have played on this pitch with extravagant bounce and seam movement. On day two, Amla batted with the control of Pujara and the flair of Kohli. While Amla’s control percentage according to ESPNcricinfo’s logs was marginally under Pujara’s, a lot of time Pujara was only leaving balls. Nobody scored more in-control runs in this Test than Amla’s 49 such runs.
