New Delhi. Today is the third day of the test match between India and South Africa. Batting first, India could score only 245 runs. KL Rahul was the only batsman from Team India who took India to a respectable score. Of the 245 runs scored by the Indian team, only Rahul scored 101 runs. From this you can guess how the performance of the other batsmen has been. The South African team that came to bat has batted brilliantly so far. Dean Elgar, playing the last series of his career, exposed the Indian bowlers by batting brilliantly. He is still present at the crease as the biggest threat to the Indian team.
Dean Elgar had batted brilliantly on the last tour of India and on this tour too, Elgar is batting brilliantly. South Africa’s score is currently 256/5. Africa has taken a lead of 11 runs over India. In such a situation, now India is in danger of losing the first test match. If the Indian team has to win this match, then the Indian bowlers will have to bowl well in the first session of the third day of the test and South Africa’s lower order will have to be sent to the pavilion as soon as possible. would send. But if South Africa takes a lead of around 100 runs from here, then it will be difficult for India to save this match and the hope of the fans that Team India will end the drought of 31 years this time will remain a pipe dream. .

Where did the Indian team go wrong?
The Indian team has made a lot of mistakes in this match. Indian batsmen have once again proved to be a flop on foreign pitches. Rohit Sharma’s defensive captaincy has also been criticized by many veterans. People are asking questions to Rohit Sharma that after all Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammad Siraj are your main bowlers. Why not start with him, also Team India knows that there is good bounce on the South African pitch, so why did they not use short balls. The Indian team has made a lot of mistakes in this test.
South African batsmen took full advantage of this. India’s bowlers have looked lackluster so far in this match. In such a situation, for India to win this match, first the bowlers will have to bowl well. After that the Indian batsman will have to understand his responsibility and put some runs on the board. So that the bowler can do something. The Indian team still has a chance but if it makes a mistake today, it will be impossible to win this test match.
