The third and final Test match between India and South Africa being played in Cape Town has become very exciting. Where Team India needs eight wickets to win. On the other hand, the hosts have to score just 111 runs. There was a time when the pair of Dean Elgar and Keegan Peterson was on the field. So it looked like he would easily give victory to the Proteas.
Jasprit Bumrah walks Elgar to make Team India’s comeback in the match
Jasprit Bumrah has made Team India return to the match by walking Elgar. However, Keegan Pietersen is still on the field. Which can become a hindrance in the path of the Virat Kohli-led team. Keegan Pietersen, who scored 72 runs in the previous innings, is unbeaten on 48. Captain Dean Elgar, who won the previous match, got out for 30, and opener Aidan Markram scored 16 runs. Let us tell you that if Team India wins this match then it will create history.
Team Indian will win test series on African soil for the first time
It will be the first time that the team will win a Test series on African soil. Its full responsibility is on the bowling led by Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami. When Elgar was out, the umpires declared the end of the day’s play. In such a situation, Rassi van der Dusen will come to support Pietersen today. However, their form has not been anything special. At the same time, Temba Bavuma has appeared well in the series. Team India’s bowlers will have to send these three players to the pavilion as soon as possible.
Team India’s batsmen disappointed, Pant scored a century
Indian wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant, who faced criticism for being dismissed after playing the wrong shot, scored an unbeaten century in tough times in the second innings of the third Test against South Africa to take Team India to 198 runs. South Africa got a target of 212 runs in the second innings.
On the pitch where all the Indian batsmen were seen struggling, this wicketkeeper scored an unbeaten century. Not only this, in his innings of 139 balls, he hit four sixes and six fours. The entire team, including captain Virat Kohli, stood up and applauded for him. Only three batsmen could reach the doubles from India’s side. Apart from Pant and Virat 29, KL Rahul scored 10 runs.
