    Teams with worst middle orders (no. 3,4, & 5) since Jan 2020

    WI: 24.91
    Ind: 27.72
    SA: 28.26
    Eng: 37.79

    Even much maligned English middle order is doing far better than we are! How the mighty have fallen!

    To be fair the quality of bowling has gone up along with bowler friendly wickets over the last few years

    I know. Still averaging less than 30 is unacceptable for an Indian middle order, whatever the conditions.

    My guess is South Africa will take a lead of around 100. India will set a target of around 150+ and South Africa will chase that down eventually with great difficulty after losing 7 or 8 wickets. It could be a close game!

    This might change only if Pujara & Rahane show determination out of nowhere, play out of their skin to save their places in the side!

    SA need to get through 1st session with minimal damage. However, i can see India bowling SA out for less then 200 today. Game will be a 2nd inns shootout.

    Eldgar is batting too slow, should bat positively and look to get runs at a good rate. India batted at RR of 3+ , SA below 2 so far.

    I admire Elgar doggedness but how can he not even score one run, it's not minefield out there. He makes Azhar Ali look like Viv.

    This is exactly the reason India lost the last series in South Africa! I kept on telling this fact during that time! That series was a mere RR shoot out between the teams in the 4 innings! It was difficult to survive on the wicket and it meant that "scoring the most during your stay at the crease!" India failed at that, at it was exactly the time Pujara was blamed (Kohli pointed it out). That was the start of the decline in our batting and we still haven't taken a step to rectify it!

    Thankfully this time around our bowling is even more potent and South Africa's batting has declined! This is the best chance to win a series in South Africa, if we lose or draw this series then the entire blame will go to our middle-order batters! I don't think we will draw this series (unless weather interferes severely!), also I don't think we will lose this series, at the most we will win 2-1. But with this bowling unit we could have easily whitewashed South Africa (what an achievement it would have been). We have to bat utterly poor to lose this series (our middle order is capable of it! And with Pant losing his form it can't be ruled out completely!)

    There is no way you are going to draw on these pitches even if you score 8(100). Only thing is your chances of losing is going to increase...

    The umpire raised finger immediately. Shoud've sent upstairs to confirm. Could've gone in batsman favour. But it is what it is.

    From cricbuzz - we're hearing that Elgar and South Africa's team manager have been to see the umpires, regarding Rassie's disputed catch. Anyway, he's not coming back. The third umpire decided that the catch wasn't conclusive enough to offer it back to the fielding captain.

    Not conclusive evidence from umpires of it being not out, else Umpires would have taken it to the fielding captain. That has been ruled out.
    For Pant it is hard to know that because he would have felt his hands behind the ball.
    So, all in all inconclusive.


    As general said, this does happen so people have to play the game : Siddique Salik

    About the Rassie dismissal: The front-on replays show the ball to have bounced in front of Pant's gloves. And the side-on replays show the ball to have gone straight into his hands. That's what you get with these 2-dimensional cameras.

    This.
    So the third umpire has reviewed it and evidences are inconclusive. Even if it was sent upstairs by on-field umpire, it would've come down to soft signal.
    And we all know what signal Erasmus would've given. Out it is.

    Dussen would never last too long with that pathetic defensive approach against quality bowling lineups. Elgar and dussen both went out to innocuous delieberies really because of their poor tactics

    Loss of Siraj seems to have swung the game in SA's way.
