India vs South Africa

In the second Test match played against India and South Africa, the visitors are threatening to lose on the team. Team India's five players have returned to the pavilion. On the fourth day of the match, KL Rahul, Murali Vijay and captain Virat Kohli were out after the dismissal of Parthiv Patel and Cheteshwar Pujara. But Pujara was run out in the second innings on the fifth and final day of the match. After his dismissal, the team's head coach Ravi Shastri looked quite upset. Looking at Pujara's past performance, he has been compared to Rahul Dravid. In such a way, his runout of two innings raises questions on the Yo-Yo fitness test.

Earlier, on the fourth day before the game ended, Team India had lost three wickets on 35 runs. Cheteshwar Pujara (11) and Parthiv Patel (5) returned unbeaten on the fourth day at Stumps. Pujara faced 40 balls and hit a boundary. On the fourth day, India lost only three wickets on 26 runs. Kagiso Rabada bowled Vijay on score of 11. Vijay hit a square by facing 25 balls. After this, Lungi Ngidi caught Rahul at the hands of Keshav Maharaj at the total of 16, giving India another blow. Rahul faced 29 balls.

Skipper Kohli, who got India out of trouble with a magnificent century in the first innings, got out after scoring only five runs. Kohli hit a boundary at 20 balls. Earlier, Dean Algar (61) and AB de Villiers (80) gave South Africa a target of 287 runs by India on a century partnership. South Africa scored 258 runs in their second innings.
