India A reach 125/1 on Day 2, trail by 384 runs in unofficial Test against South Africa A | Cricket News – Times of India


BLOEMFONTEIN: India A made a cautious reply to South Africa A’s mammoth 509 for seven declared as they ended day 2 of the opening unofficial Test at 125 for one here on Wednesday.
Captain Priyank Panchal and Abhimanyu Easwaran were batting on 45 and 27 respectively at the draw of stumps.
Opener Prithvi Shaw (48 off 45 balls) was looking ominous before he was out in the 14th over of India A’s first innings. He hit nine fours during his knock.
India, who faced 33 overs on Wednesday, trail by 384 runs in the four-day match.
Earlier, South Africa A batsmen continued to dominate the India A bowlers as the home side added 166 runs from 45.3 overs before declaring their first innings at 509 for seven from 135.3 overs.
Resuming at 343 for three, South Africa A captain Pieter Malan could add just six runs from his overnight 157 as he fell to Navdeep Saini early in the day.
Jason Smith, who was 51 not out at stumps on the first day, added just one run to become Arzan Nagwaswalla’s victim.
But the duo of wicketkeeper batter Sinethemba Qeshile (82 not out) and George Linde (51) defied the Indian bowlers by adding 102 runs for the sixth wicket in 27.2 overs.
On the first day on Tuesday, the Indians bowlers had a tough time on the field as Pieter Malan and Tony de Zorzi scored centuries to take South Africa A to 343 for three in 90 overs.
After opting to bowl, India A got two early wickets before Malan and Zorzi (117) shared a 217-run stand for the third wicket to put South Africa A in a strong position.
Brief Scores:
South Africa A: 509 for 7 declared in 135.3 overs (Pieter Malan 163, Tony de Zorzi 117; Navdeep Saine 2/67, Arzan Nagwaswalla 2/75).
India A: 125 for 1 in 33 overs (Prithvi Shaw 48, Priyank Panchal 45 batting).
