India A vs South Africa A, Ind A vs SA A 2nd test Highlights: After winning the first unofficial Test with South Africa A by seven wickets, India A locked horns with South Africa A in Mysuru on Tuesday. Winning the toss, Proteas elected to field first and India A lost two early wickets fo Abhimanyu Easwaran and Priyank Panchal before in-form Shubman Gill emerged as the star of the day. Shubman played 92-run innings and now Karun Nair 78, and Wriddhiman Saha 36 are still on the crease. Bad light has forced the play to finish an hour early.
India A clinched the five-match unofficial ODI series 4-1, and will hope to continue their domination through the performances of Shubman Gill, who has broken into the Indian Test squad for the three-match series against the Proteas, starting on October 2 in Visakhapatnam.
Experienced wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha will take over the captaincy from Gill, while openers Priyank Panchal, Abhimanyu Easwaran, and Karnataka batsman Karun Nair have also been drafted in. But it remains to be seen if all-rounder Vijay Shankar, who missed the first match due to a thumb injury, gets an opportunity.
