India vs South Africa 3rd Test, Bowlers set a impressive target at Wanderers

India vs South Africa 3rd Test, Bowlers set a impressive target at Wanderers
Written by Abhishek Lohia

After struggling the top order batsman, Indian tailenders Mohammad Shami(27) and Bhuvneshwar Kumar(33) presents the top-level Batting and set a massive score of 247, at Wanderers. After the dismissal of Ajinkya Rahane at (48), India dominates South Africa in the 3rd test match. South Africa needed 232 to win this match and can register Whitewash against the No 1 Test team. India all out at 247, in 79 overs, the team completed third time 200 plus in this series. Ajinkya rahane scored 48 runs on a tough pitch and caught behind by De-cock on 68 over. After the dismissal of Ajinkya Rahane, tailender Bhuvi and Shami started hitting boundaries, Shami hits two sixes while Bhuvneshwar finds 2 boundaries.

India lower-batting order contributed some gritty runs at 3rd Test against South Africa, now the win depends upon the performance of bowlers; that how they can defend this total. Remaining two days more cracks will be helmed on the pitch, batting on 2nd innings wouldn’t be easy for Africa.

Behind chasing the target, Africa lost their first wicket in second over, when Mohammad Shami departs Aiden Markram(4) on his first over. After 6 overs both the umpires decide to stop play because the ball hits on Elgar’s helmet, umpire Aleem Dar declared the day off just after discussion with match referee.

Now the future of next two days of this match depends on match Referee and umpires, they will decide whether the play is possible or not? Skipper Virat Kohli looks unhappy with umpires decision, maybe it is because of Pitch nature.
