Elgar hit a century, this player made a big mistake, otherwise this century does not seem
On the third day of the first Test being played between India and South Africa, South African batsman Dean Elgar hit a century. The South African team, which had lost 4 wickets at a time of 63, was struggling. But Dean Elgar first added 115 runs of the fifth wicket with Faf Duplessis. Then together with Quinton de Kock shared a partnership of more than 100 runs for the sixth wicket.
Dean Elgar completed his century by hitting sixes in 175 balls. At the moment, Elgar is still on the field. By the time the news was written, he had scored 132 runs in 247 balls with the help of 14 fours and 4 sixes.
At a time when Ravindra Jadeja was doing the 46th over of the match, wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha dropped the catch of Dean Elgar on the fourth ball of the over. Jadeja's ball hit the left pad of Saha taking the edge of Elgar's bat. In this way, Saha donated life to South African opener Dean Elgar.
Significantly, at that time Dean Elgar was batting after scoring 74 runs in 129 balls. If Wriddhiman Saha would catch that catch of Elgar at that time, then Elgar could not complete his century. In this situation, Dean Elgar would have to return to the pavilion on a personal score of 74 runs.
