Ishant Sharma's Selection Over Bhuvneshwar Kumar For 2nd Test Leaves Millennials Baffled

Ind vs SA 1st Test South Africa bowled out for 130 in second innings

Welcome back as another intriguing day of Test cricket at Centurion awaits fans after India launched a late comeback to share honours with hosts South Africa on the opening day of the second Test. Stay tuned for live updates and scorecard from the zeenews.com sports team.

Du Plessis, running out of partners and looking to accelerate, was then castled by Sharma with a handsome delivery before Morne Morkel became Ashwin fourth wicket when he was out for 6 looking to clear long off. Wicket maiden for Ishant.

Two run-outs and the bowling of Ravichandran Ashwin gave India the edge on the first day of the second Test against South Africa at SuperSport Park on Saturday.

India had initially contained the home batsmen in the first 90 minutes of the session, bowling excellent lines that made scoring shots a risk.

AB de Villiers, not at all his fluent self on a pitch that was sluggish and occasionally two-paced, dragged a ball from Ishant back onto his stumps and then a brace of run outs allowed India to claw back into the game. "I don't think we need to panic because of collapses".

The tourists faced a single over before the break and came through unscathed at four without loss for what they will consider a satisfactory session that might have brought much more reward. "I like to believe I was just dogged enough", Ashwin said at the post-match press conference. "So, this was one of those days". It was clearly a lucky wicket for the visitors as Elgar jumped down the track and hit the ball straight at Vijay who somehow managed to hold onto that one after it hit his body. My only intent was to try and keep it in a particular spot. "I have gone through a massive ride over the last eight months, and I am in a phase of life where I really want to enjoy my cricket".

"Those wickets in the last session are valid incentive for us going into the Day 2".

"There was some extraordinary work by Hardik and a bit of luck for us", said Ashwin. In Centurion, the openers have to take a lot of responsibility to see the new ball off. "If those two batsmen walked out tomorrow morning, it would have been tougher for us".

He provided the inspiration while it was R Ashwin's perspiration that kept the visitors in the game on a unusual first day's play at SuperSport Park on Saturday.

The 23-year-old opener confirmed his rich potential with a magnificent 94, showing off a wonderful ability to score heavily on both sides of the wicket. And then when we walked into the ground yesterday, it was white in colour, the grass was coming off.

"I like to think I have kept us in the game". I was happy with whatever I learnt from that match.
