Watch – Anrich Nortje And Ravindra Jadeja Engaged In Verbal Battle
Team India batters have produced another scintillating effort with the bat to post a massive first innings total against South Africa in Pune. The likes of Virat Kohli and Mayank Agarwal have kept the bowlers at bay other than a few outside chances. Among all, debutant Anrich Nortje looked to test the batters with short-pitch deliveries. As the game approached towards tea, Nortje and Ravindra Jadeja had a verbal tussle.
Resuming at 273 for three, Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane saw off an opening burst from South Africa’s seamers before buckling down and extending India’s total. Kohli completed his 26th Test match hundred and his first of the year moments before the close of the second session while Rahane worked his way to a fighting fifty himself.Virat Kohli. Credits: BCCI
