Prasidh Krishna's First Test Wicket


During his initial overs, Prasidh Krishna struggled to find his rhythm and was leaking runs. However, he managed to produce a delivery that surprised Verreynne with extra bounce. The ball took a glove and KL Rahul, the wicketkeeper, completed a simple catch. The on-field umpire did not adjudge the batter out, but India decided to review the decision. The DRS replays showed a clear spike as the ball passed the gloves of Verreynne, confirming the dismissal.

Challenging Role for Prasidh Krishna and Shardul Thakur

With Mohammed Shami injured, the responsibility fell on Prasidh Krishna and Shardul Thakur to support the good work of Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj. However, both Prasidh and Thakur struggled, giving away easy runs with loose deliveries.


Despite their efforts, South African opener Dean Elgar played a remarkable innings, scoring an unbeaten century. He ended the day with 140 runs to his name. Another debutant, David Bedingham, also had a successful outing, scoring a half-century. The partnership between Elgar and Bedingham for the fourth wicket added 131 runs to South Africa's total.

Team India's Challenge

At the end of Day 2, South Africa had taken a lead of 11 runs with five wickets still in hand. The Indian team now faces a challenging task of quickly wrapping up South Africa's batting lineup on Day 3 to give themselves a chance of making a comeback in the match.


Prasidh Krishna's maiden Test wicket was a significant moment in his career. Despite facing initial struggles, he managed to produce a delivery that surprised Kyle Verreynne and secured his dismissal. The Indian team will need a collective effort from their bowlers to contain the South African batsmen and turn the tide in their favor. The match promises to be an exciting contest as both teams battle it out on the field.
