India vs South Africa Highlights, 1st Test Day 2: Bad light forces early stumps again, SA lead IND by 11 runs

Dec 27, 2023 09:18 PM IST

  • India vs South Africa Highlights, 1st Test Day 2: South Africa were ahead by 11 runs when bad light stopped play and led to early stumps.

India vs South Africa Highlights, 1st Test Day 2: Bad light forced early stumps on Day 2, with South Africa reaching 256/5, ahead of India by 11 runs. Dean Elgar lit up his farewell series by scoring a 14th Test century, and along with David Bedingham, who has a fifty on debut, has stitched a century partnership post tea on the second day. As South Africa took the lead, India's shoulders have dropped. They have been wicketless for almost 30 overs now and the tiredness is visible. Their partnership had reached 131 when Mohammed Siraj finally ended India's wait for a wicket by sending back Bedingham. One brought two as in the very next over, Prasidh Krishna opened his account Test cricket by dismissing Kyle Verreynne for his maiden Test wicket.

There was steady drizzle in the lead up to the start of play on Day 2. That eventually led to wet patches in the outfield and the start of play had to be delayed by 25 minutes. KL Rahul came in with the intention of playing his shots and while Mohammed Siraj eventually fell at the other end, he got to a sensational century with a six. He fell soon thereafter on 101 off 137 and that was the last Indian wicket to fall. The visitors were all out for 245. Mohammed Siraj then got an early breakthrough for India with Aiden Markram falling for five runs.

Dean Elgar and Tony De Zorzi then saw South Africa through to Lunch, at which point the hosts were 49/1 in 16 overs. De Zorzi and Elgar then made merry with India deciding to start with Prasidh Krishna and Shardul Thakur in the second session. Elgar eventually raced past his half-century. The partnership was ended by Jasprit Bumrah who dismissed De Zorzi for on 28 off 62. Bumrah then dismissed Keegan Petersen immediately therafter but debutant David Bedingham has looked completely at home since. Elgar eventually reached his century while Bedingham scored at will and at Tea, the partnership between the pair was on 81 off 114. Elgar was on 115 off 168 while Bedingham was on 32 off 47. South Africa creamed 140 runs in the second session.

On Day 1, Kagiso Rabada showcased his prowess, dismantling India's batting stars with a five-wicket haul on a challenging track offering unpredictable bounce as South Africa dominated the first day of the opening Test on Tuesday. KL Rahul (70 not out, 105 balls) continued to excel at Supersport Park, demonstrating exceptional composure on a demanding pitch that took India to 208 for 8 in 59 overs before rain led to early stumps.

Rabada (5/44 in 17 overs) delivered two of the most threatening and penetrating spells seen recently, severely shaking the Indian batting lineup, which struggled to adapt to the conditions. Without Rahul's contributions, India would have faced a significant challenge in surpassing the 170-run mark. Rahul's elegant cover drive for six against left-arm pacer Marco Jansen and the boundary over backward point to complete his fifty with a six were highlights of his impressive innings.

Here are some key pointers on Day 2 of the first Test between India and South Africa

- India started the second day on 208/8, with KL Rahul on 70 off 105 balls.

- Rahul came with the intention of playing his shots and reached his century with a six.

- He was the last Indian wicket to fall after scoring 101 off 137 and the visitors were all out for 245.

- Siraj then got the early breakthrough for India with Aiden Markram's wicket.

- Dean Elgar and Tony de Zorzi then put South Africa ahead in the early part of the second session before Bumrah broke the partnership. Bumrah then also dismissed Keegan Petersen.

- However, Elgar and debutant David Bedingham smashed the Indians everywhere and the former eventually sailed past his century.

- South Africa smashed 140 runs for the loss of just two wickets in the second session.

- Dean Elgar completed his 14th Test century.

- Bedingham celebrated his Test debut with a maiden Test fifty.

- Siraj broke the 131-run partnership, castling Bedingham.

- Prasidh picked his maiden Test wicket by dismissing Kyle Verreynne.

- Bad light led to early stumps for the second day in a row.

    India vs South Africa Live Score, 1st Test Day 2: Early stumps again! Honours shared on even day

    India vs South Africa Live Score, 1st Test Day 2: And for the second day in a row, bad light has forced early stumps. We guess that's the kind of situation we’ll get with rain early in the morning and bad light during the evening. Nonetheless, a riveting day of Test cricket. Centuries from KL Rahul and Dean Elgar caps off a topsy-turvy day for both teams. But if you have to pick between the two, it has to be Elgar's century. His 14th Test ton and a 131-run partnership with debutant David Bedingham put SA in control before two wickets in two overs from Prasidh Krishna and Mohammed Sirah brought India back.

    South Africa have taken the lead but the game is wide open. There isn't much batting to come after Jansen so we could be in for a very intriguing Day 3, probably the most exciting day of the Test. Join us back tomorrow and let's keep our fingers crossed for a full day's play.

    India vs South Africa Live Score, 1st Test Day 2: Bad light, and the players walk off

    India vs South Africa Live Score, 1st Test Day 2: You saw it coming. The light has deteriorated and play has been interrupted. The players walk off due to bad light but it seems as if Rohit isn't happy. He shakes his head as he walks off the ground. India were 14 overs away from taking the second new ball but they'll now have to wait… maybe till tomorrow. Another half an hour to go but it could well be early stumps again.

    India vs South Africa Live Score, 1st Test Day 2: The light meter is here again!

    India vs South Africa Live Score, 1st Test Day 2: The light meters are regularly making their way out to the umpire's hand. It has gotten quite dark here but apparently not enough to force stumps just as yet. Action has resumed after a short drinks interval, and India would want to get maybe one more before stumps are drawn.

    India vs South Africa Live Score, 1st Test Day 2: Prasidh Krishna with his maiden Test wicket. Kyle Verreynne on his way back. SA go 5 down for 249. He goes for a slash but just as the ball went past the bat, there was a huge sound. The umpire didn't look convinced and declared it not out, but India took the DRS and were paid off immediately with the ultra edge showing a spike of the ball clipping the glove. Right then! Two wickets in 2 overs for India and they are right back!

    India vs South Africa Live Score, 1st Test Day 2: BOWLED HIM! Siraj ends India's wait for a wicket

    India vs South Africa Live Score, 1st Test Day 2: There's the wicket. And it has come with SA still one run away from equalling India's total. Siraj pitches it full and is rewarded as the ball beats Bedingham's drive and knocks over the stumps. Much-needed boost for India but take a moment to applaud this kid, who has played out of his skins. SA 244/4, David departs for 56.

    India vs South Africa Live Score, 1st Test Day 2: FIFTY on debut! Played, David

    India vs South Africa Live Score, 1st Test Day 2: The SuperSport Park comes unglued, a roaring applause as David Bedingham pushes one through the covers for his 50th run. A half-century on debut. The coach claps from the stands, as do David's teammates. And more importantly, South Africa now trail India by just 10. For India, it looks like long road ahead. Still 20 overs left for the second new ball.

    India vs South Africa Live Score, 1st Test Day 2: CRRUUNCHHEDDD! Bumrah lets loose another outside off stump, and Bedingham, as imperious as he has been through the off-side, creams another one as the ball races away to the boundary. On to 49 he goes as SA reach 228/3, trail by 17 runs.

    India vs South Africa Live Score, 1st Test Day 2: Another half-tracker onto Elgar's pads and the veteran whips it away through the midwicket region for his 22nd boundary. 22. There's been no shortage of fours from his bat in his farewell series. As for India, it's visible that there are some tired legs. The speed of pacers have dropped drastically.

    India vs South Africa Live Score, 1st Test Day 2: Here comes the 100 partnership

    India vs South Africa Live Score, 1st Test Day 2: A cracking cover drive from the debutant Bedingham to bring up the century stand between him and Dean Elgar. 101* off 140 balls and boy it's been quite the stand. Bedingham enters the 40s. He has looked ufazed on the big stage. A huge positive for South Africa.

    India vs South Africa Live Score, 1st Test Day 2: And it has come for the loss of just three wickets in just over 50 overs. Well, four wickets if you assume that Bavuma is not going to bat in this Test. Thakur is steaming in from the other end, not Siraj and the 200 comes with a single off the fourth ball. Just a single after that and South Africa now trail India by 44 runs.

    India vs South Africa Live Score, 1st Test Day 2: The players are back!

    India vs South Africa Live Score, 1st Test Day 2: India get in a huddle, Virat Kohli is giving the team talk. Siraj is not in that huddle, seems to have hung back and is getting some part of his cap fixed in the dugout. India do start with Bumrah in this session and Rohit Sharma is not there. Rinku Singh is in the field in his place and KL Rahul has taken captaincy duities. Bedingham facing up.

    India vs South Africa Live Score, 1st Test Day 2: What can India get upto in the final session

    India vs South Africa Live Score, 1st Test Day 2: Still a mystery as to why India decided to start the second session with Shardul Thakur and Prasidh Krishna which allowed Elgar to settle in nicely. Wonder if they will do the same this time or start off with Siraj and Bumrah steaming in.

    India vs South Africa Live Score, 1st Test Day 2: TEA! South Africa 194/3 in 49 overs, trail by 51 runs

    India vs South Africa Live Score, 1st Test Day 2: South Africa have bombed along in this session. 140 runs in it for the loss of two wickets. A wry smile on Elgar's face, he knows that was a tricky little over. But he has fended that off and dominated the rest in this session. Walks off to a standing ovation from his home crowd. He is on 115 off 168, Bedingham is cruising on 32 off 47. A lot to think about for India, South Africa have cut that deficit down to 51 runs in just over a session.

    India vs South Africa Live Score, 1st Test Day 2: FOUR! Elgar gets away with one

    India vs South Africa Live Score, 1st Test Day 2: Well he is jittery all right. Elgar seemed to have settled for the fact that he doesn't have to face any more deliveries in this session, instead he has to face an entire over. Third ball is short, Elgar tries to pull, gets a glove on it and it just about evades Rahul.

  • Wed, 27 Dec 2023 07:05 PM

    India vs South Africa Live Score, 1st Test Day 2: SA trail by 56 runs

    India vs South Africa Live Score, 1st Test Day 2: Partnership reaches 76 in 108 balls. Dean Elgar seemed ready to walk off for Tea but umpire Paul Reifel can be heard telling him on the stump mic that there is a minute to go for Tea and so this is the last over of this session. Thakur to bowl it. Elgar is on 111 off 163. Bedingham on 32 off 46. Wonder if this will make Elgar a little jittery.

    India vs South Africa Live Score, 1st Test Day 2: Petersen won't like to see that replay again. Not too short but Petersen stays tall to try and cut it, no foot movement at all. Inside edge and the ball crashes on to the base of the stumps.

    India vs South Africa Live Score, 1st Test Day 2: The broadcasters have shown footage of Kohli just interchanging the two bails at the striker's end before Bumrah bowled that over. Sure enough, a wicket came at the end of that over. Oh what is cricket without some supernatural intervention. Even then, can't take anything away from Bumrah for that wicket, of course. Elgar is on 68 off 100, Keegan Petersen is the new batter in and he has made two off six.

    India vs South Africa Live Score, 1st Test Day 2: There it is! It is Bumrah who does the job for India. Bumrah sends it in at a length, angling in and then straightening off the seam. De Zorzi is squared up, outside edge and Yashasvi Jaiswal makes no mistake at third slip.

    India vs South Africa Live Score, 1st Test Day 2: And finally, Bumrah is brought back

    India vs South Africa Live Score, 1st Test Day 2: India have been a little bizarre with their tactics with regards to bowlers thus far in this second session. Thakur and Krishna have conceded 92 runs since the start of this session and one would've thought that Rohit would just hand the ball back to his premier wicket takers in Bumrah and Siraj straightaway after Lunch. Unless of course, there is an injury somewhere. Well Bumrah is bowling now so he is ok. Elgar on 57 off 82, De Zorzi on 23 off 49.

    India vs South Africa Live Score, 1st Test Day 2: Prasidh Krishna coming in from the other end

    India vs South Africa Live Score, 1st Test Day 2: Thakur starts the session off with a maiden and Prasidh continues from the other end. Unlike what South Africa did yesterday, where they straightaway threw the ball back to Rabada after Lunch and he promptly produced results. Rohit has chosen to stick with Krishna and Thakur instead of giving the ball back to Bumrah or Siraj.

    India vs South Africa Live Score, 1st Test Day 2: South Africa trail India by 196 runs at Lunch. It looked like they would find it very difficult to keep the Indian pacers from blowing a few more wickets away before Lunch but Elgar and De Zorzi have done a lot to calm the nerves in the Proteas dressing room. The pair have put up 38 off 73 balls for the second wicket.

However, De Zorzi and Elgar have rode their luck well thus far. Bumrah just got done with his fifth over and now Siraj comes back for his fifth. Wonder if Rohit is thinking of giving Prasidh a few overs before Lunch. Elgar on 14 off 26, De Zorzi on 8 off 13.

    India vs South Africa Live Score, 1st Test Day 2: No wicket for him yet but this is incredible stuff from India's spearhead. Elgar takes a blow on the midriff first ball of the seventh.

Absolutely vicious swing that.
