Injured Dale Steyn ruled out of India-South Africa series

12 January, 2018, 17:46 | Author: Heidi Alvarez
  • South African speedster Dale Steyn is still unfit and is doubtful for the first Test vs India starting in Cape Town from January 5

Even before the first Test, SA's coach Ottis Gibson had been non-committal about Steyn's comeback, saying that he would not want to rush the 34-year-old back into the side, especially with this being their first match of the season. 13 wickets falling on day 1 is something neither the two would have thought of.

6 - Hardik Pandya became the sixth Indian player to score a fifty on maiden Test innings in South Africa. He forced Elgar to edge behind with the third ball of the game, trapped Markram lbw with one that swung, and also had Amla caught behind.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar must also be praised for hitting an 86-ball 25 in trying conditions to provide Pandya the support he needed with the top-order failing to apply itself late on Friday and in the first two sessions on Saturday. However, in one such instance, Dale Steyn was seen admiring the tattoos inked by Umesh Yadav on his body after the end of first day's play.

Earlier, it was the ideal start for the Indians as overnight batsmen Cheteshwar Pujara and Rohit Sharma played out the first hour without losing a wicket. "I knew the new ball would be key for us, if we could strike early we believed we could get through their batting line-up".

Playing in only his fourth Test, all of which have come away from home, he scored a crucial 93 and put on 99 runs for the eighth wicket along with Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

That changed with the first ball after lunch, which Cheteshwar Pujara slashed a Philander outswinger to gully to end a stay of more than two-and-a-half hours in which he faced 92 balls and scored 26. In fact, it was a ball that could have easily been left as it was travelling on the 7th stump when he edged that for Faf du Plessis to complete an easy catch. They missed some, edged some, but never gave up. Rahane was told that he could only be played as an opener in the absence of either Sharma or Shikhar Dhawan in the ODI team. The score read 191/8 and after that it was exclusively on Pandya to strike fast and reach his second Test century. Quinton de Kock, trying to shake off a run of poor scores, took Bhuvneshwar for a hat-trick of boundaries, carving the ball through the off side easily.
