Apart from these two, the innings of opener Shubman Gill (52 off 93 balls) was the center of attraction.

Cheteshwar Pujara (26 off 88 balls) and skipper Ajinkya Rahane (35 off 63 balls) failed to play big innings despite good starts while opener Mayank Agarwal (13 off 28 balls) failed to take advantage of the opportunity. The tall pacer Jamieson (3 for 47) again troubled the Indian batsmen. He bowled Gill and Rahane after Agarwal was caught by wicketkeeper Tom Blundell in the morning session. Veteran fast bowler Tim Southee (1 for 43) meanwhile disturbed Pujara’s concentration. Pujara scored his last Test century in January 2019.

The Indian team for the South Africa series will also be announced in a few days and if these two experienced players are selected to travel to Johannesburg, then captain Virat Kohli, head coach Rahul Dravid and white-ball captain Rohit Sharma (Joe Lal Ball is an important part of cricket’s think tank) will have to show a lot of confidence to deliver them the entire series.
