'Bad news' for Team India before Test series
From October 2, the Test series between the Indian cricket team and South Africa is to begin, but before this series, the tension of Captain Virat Kohli of Team India has increased. Virat's tension is due to South African opener Aiden Markram, who continued his brilliant form before the Test series and hit a century against the Board President's XI.
The first day of this match being played in Vizianjagaram was washed away by the rain, while on the second day only 50 overs could be done. Meanwhile, the South African team scored 199 runs for four wickets. Aiden Markram did a good batting exercise and scored 100 off 118 balls with 18 fours and two sixes before retiring.Tenba Bavuma also hit a brilliant half-century and scored 55 runs.
Umesh-Porel gave a good start
The South African team won the toss and batted first but lost two wickets quickly. Umesh Yadav, who replaced injured Jasprit Bumrah in the Indian Test team, sent opener Dean Elgar to the pavilion in the seventh over of the innings. Thenis de Bruyne, who landed to take his place, fell to Ishan Porel after scoring 6 runs, taking the score to 33 for two. After this, Jubain Hamza also fell to Dharmendra Singh Jadeja on a personal score of 22 runs. Jadeja also dismissed Faf Duplesey on a personal score of 9 runs. However, Markram and Bavuma hit the crease.
Markram's century is a threat to Team India
Let us tell you that Aiden Markram has scored two centuries on Indian soil. Earlier, he also scored a century against India A. He scored 161 runs against India A. It is clear from their innings that Markram has understood the Indian pitch and now he is ready for the Test series. However, Markram has a very poor record against India. Markram has scored only 140 runs in 3 Tests against Team India at an average of 23.33. Markram has played only 2 Test matches on Asian soil so far with an average of just 10.
