South Africa has looked in good control of the game on Day 2 of the second Test against India. In the opening half an hour, India conceded just 14 runs in 7 overs but the hosts eventually geared up their innings. Keegan Petersen and Dean Elgar held the fort of the side and played the Indian pacers with utmost control.
Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, and Mohammed Siraj toiled hard but weren’t able to reap any rewards. It was Shardul Thakur who chimed in with the first wicket of the day as Elgar edged the ball to the wicketkeeper after scoring 28. However, amidst the ongoing match, it often happens that the on-lookers are intrigued by the chat amongst players that they get to hear through the stump mic.

The hosts have so far looked great on the field. For India, Shardul Thakur has been the pick of the bowlers apart from Elgar he scalped three important wickets of Petersen (62), Rassie van der Dussen (1), and keeper batter Kyle Verreynne (21). Petersen had previously hit Shami for three consecutive fours to bring his maiden Test half-century. He then sent back Temba Bavuma to register his five-wicket haul.
On Day 1 of the Test, Rahul who is captaining the side in absence of Virat Kohli hit an impressive half-century to provide some stability to the team’s batting unit. The top order wasn’t able to make a larger impact on the game as the Proteas’ pacers exuded their sheer flair in the match.
However handy contributions from India’s lower middle-order helped the team reach the mark of 202. It will be intriguing to see how the action unfolds further on day 2 of the second Test at The Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg.
