The second day of the third test match between India and South Africa will be played today. On the second day of the match, the whole burden will be on the bowlers of Team India. Team India was all out for just 223 runs on the first day. At the same time, South Africa had scored 17 runs for one wicket till the end of the day’s play. Except Virat Kohli, none of the Indian batsmen could play a big innings. In such a situation, Team India will have a lot of hope from Bumrah, Shami, Umesh and Ashwin on the second day of the match.
The bowlers will have to show their strength in the first session.
During the Indian innings, the South African bowlers attacked from the very first session and took quick wickets. This is what the bowlers of Team India will have to do today. Indian bowlers would also like to get the South African batsmen out early in the first session, as this pitch is proving to be very helpful for the fast bowlers in the beginning. Mohammad Siraj is missing the second test match due to injury. Umesh Yadav has got a chance in his place. In such a situation, Umesh would like to take advantage of the opportunity in any case.

In India’s first innings, big batsmen like Team India’s opener KL Rahul (12), Mayank Agarwal (15), Cheteshwar Pujara (43) and Ajinkya Rahane (9) failed. Kagiso Rabada took the most wickets for South Africa. Four wickets came in his account. At the same time, Marco Jensen got three wickets. Dan Olivier, Keshav Maharaj and Lungi Ngidi took a wicket each.
Rahane’s poor performance continues
Team India’s experienced batsman Ajinkya Rahane’s poor form continues in the third Test as well. Scores of 48 and 20 came out of Rahane’s bat in the Centurion Test. At the same time, in the second test, he scored 0 and 58. Even in the first innings of the third Test, Rahane did not bat and he was dismissed after scoring 9 runs. In such a situation, he is being trolled a lot on social media and there is a demand to drop him from the team.
