South Africa batsman Dean Elgar has again drawn anger from fans for comments made on Indian conditions. When South Africa had toured India the last time, Elgar had said that the pitches were not fit for cricket to be played.
George Linde said it was unfortunate that South Africa failed to latch onto the chance given by Indian opener Rohit Sharma, whose maiden double century put the hosts on a driver's seat in the third Test.
Javed Miandad, Mohsin Khan, Rashid Latif, Moin Khan and Aaqib Javed have all spoken about how Sarfaraz Ahmed was removed as Pakistan captain. However, Ramiz Raja and Shoaib Akhtar sought to see the move in a positive light.
Rohit Sharma, in his first series as Test opener, has amassed 529 runs from four innings vs South Africa, thus becoming only the fifth Indian opener to score 500-plus runs in a Test series. On Sunday, he brought up his maiden Test double ton.
Ajinkya Rahane is the first batsman in Test history to be involved in 200 partnerships without ever being involved in a run out. He brought up this unique world record on way to his 11th Test ton in Ranchi on Sunday.
Dismissing rumors that the board had decided to relegate Sarfaraz Ahmed to a lower category, a PCB spokesperson said the wicketkeeper-batsman would retain his top category in the central contracts which run till July next year.
