India beats South Africa for pride-saving win in 3rd test

India beats South Africa for pride-saving win in 3rd test

With five Indian batsmen absent in the second innings due to injury, and Michael Holding in the middle of a hostile spell of short-pitched bowling, Bedi once again declared the innings with a lead of merely 12 runs on the board, and conceded that the Indian innings should be recorded as completed, thereby allowing the West Indies to make the 13 runs to defeat India, and go on to win the series.

It makes little sense to forecast how India will fare in their five-Test series in England, what with more than six months left before the first match gets underway at Edgbaston on August 1.

This is being written at the end of the third day's play, so it will be interesting to see what the local media, who went berserk when South Africa toured India a couple of years back and played on what they called dust bowls, will say about the Wanderers pitch. For one of the most risky players in the game to finish the series with 71 runs from six innings at an average of 11.83 is an alarm Gibson seems to have heard.

This was the first time Indian pacers took 20 wickets in a Test match.

"I don't know whether we should be telling people what to do or what we would like‚ but we look forward to playing on good pitches". These three seamers after their sensational form in the test series now have a great knowledge about the pitches and the weakness of the South African batsmen.

So while Virat Kohli's men will not arrive in Old Blighty undercooked, playing just the one home Test against debutants Afghanistan is unlikely to prepare them for facing the likes of James Anderson and Stuart Broad.

"Absolutely. I believe so (preparations for World Cup 2019)".

Hyundai to launch all-new Santa Fe SUV in USA this summer
After issuing a teaser photo of the all-new Hyundai Santa Fe , the brand has now issued official sketches of their latest SUV. The competing Toyota brand, by contrast, offers seven crossover and SUV nameplates in the US , plus two pickups.

It raised the question over whether the test would continue, but after a meeting between the umpires, match referee Andy Pycroft and team representatives, it was chose to play on. Last time we lost the series and before that as well. It's an approach that the South Africans favour too, and they aren't about to let their intensity drop because they've won the Test series.

He continued, "As far as individuals are concerned they have been given specific roles. We want to get those victories away from home", Rohit Sharma conceded.

"Batting on this [Wanderers] wicket [on Friday]‚ if you're not confident in your skill and your technique‚ that can play mind games with you".

That was the final straw for umpires Aleem Dar and Ian Gould, who decided that conditions had become too risky for the batsmen, and when play was suspended with 20 minutes to go in the day the future of the Test was uncertain. It is a long series.

"We need bowlers confident to win Tests", Kohli said.

It was no surprise that India's best batting performance came when they reverted to their successful template: Vijay and Pujara defend and blunt the new ball, Kohli stamps his authority, and Rahane counterattacks when the pressure is on and also bats well with the tail. If we have a good game here at Kingsmead, we gain confidence going into the series. After surrendering the ODI series to England, they must be desperate to get Lyon back in the team and get back to what they do best: winning test matches.

"We are very keen to win the series". In a way it can be good, like you can continue the momentum.
