Former Cricketer appraised Hardik Pandya innings against Proteas

  • Dale Steyn marked his return to Test cricket with a wicket as India closed on 3-28 in Cape Town

"If he hadn't scored those runs, we would have been in trouble".

"It was great for Test cricket".

Of course, 20 wickets to win a Test match is the priority. It has worked for us in the recent past, that's something definitely is a combination that a lot of worldwide sides want to go with these days, because you don't want the bowlers to settle against one kind of batsmen and one line and length, specially with the new ball.

The South African captain said that losing Steyn, who has been ruled out of the rest of the series with a left heel injury, was a big blow.

The Proteas had reached 65 for two after bowling India out for 209 in their first innings on the second day of the opening Test on Saturday.

Why Tesla Model 3 Deliveries Missed the Mark
In Q3 2017 only 220 Model 3 c. "Once you have it right you can ramp really quickly, but getting to that phase is the hard part". Still, it was able to complete the cross-country journey in just 50 hours, using $100 to charge their Model 3 in that time.

Hardik Pandya's counter-punching 93 from 95 balls and two late wickets kept India alive on day two of the first Test in Cape Town after South Africa's pace attack had swept through the tourists' top and middle order. We needed to bat better than what we did.

India lost 3-14 after lunch but Pandya, having survived a number of scares - he overturned a caught-behind dismissal on five, was dropped on 15 by Dean Elgar, and profited from a missed stumping by Quinton de Kock on 71 - ensured the tourists trailed by just 77 on first innings.

Pandya, 24, confirmed the reputation he earned as a dashing stroke player, first in limited overs cricket and more recently when he scored 178 runs off 168 balls in three Test innings in Sri Lanka a year ago, including 108 off 96 deliveries in the third Test in Kandy.

"We didn't want Dale to bat unless AB was still there because we didn't want him to make his injury worse".

"The bowlers learned pretty quickly from the first innings, whatever mistakes needed to be corrected". "We didn't get the runs but it was the mindset that counts", said Du Plessis. "We were surprised how quick it was on the first day but today was very hard for batsmen". "He batted really well and showed a lot of character. But if we get a lively wicket our bowlers can exploit their batting again".
