SA v IND highlights today – Second freedom test day two from SuperSport Park, Centurion (South Africa) Sunday 14th January 2018. On the first day of the second test, South Africa scored 269 with the fall of six wickets. F du Plessis 24 not out and KA Maharaj 10 not out. AK Markram 94, HM Amla 82, AB de Villiers 20, Q de Kock † 0 and VD Philander 0.
D Elgar scored 31 runs and out then it was 29.3 and he hangs on to a deflection off his stomach! A bizarre shot, but it was coming from Elgar. Ashwin was making him dance, really. He steps out, premeditatedly. It’s back of a length from Ashwin so he’s never going to reach the pitch of it. Forced to drive on the up. Hits it aerially into a jumping Vijay’s mid-riff. It gets jammed there fractionally, between body and right elbow. He reacts quickly to juggle and hold on. That might have even carried to short extra if silly point wasn’t there 85/1.
South Africa won the toss and elected to bat.
