India vs South Africa (IND vs SA) 2nd Test Highlights: India skipper Virat Kohli struck his highest Test score of 254 not out against South Africa to help his team pose an imosing 601/5 dec. in the first innings. After India’s declaration, the Indian bowlers continued to apply pressure on the batsmen, in what was the last phase of play for the day in Pune. De Bruyn and nightwatchman Nortje have done well to survive.
Faf du Plessis’ move to play an extra seamer did not work his favour. Anrich Nortje remained wicketless on the opening day of the Test with 60 runs from 13 overs. Mayank Agarwal scored his second century on the trot whereas Cheteshwar Pujara provided him support after a beauty of a delivery from Kagiso Rabada got rid of in-form batsman Rohit Sharma. Rabada was the only successful bowler on Day Two with three wickets to his name.
