South Africa A in command on Day Three

India A lost opener Murali Vijay for a duck in pursuit of 307 against South Africa A at stumps on Day Three of the second unofficial Test on Monday. Cheteshwar Pujara and Shahbaz Nadeem were at the crease as India A ended the day at 3/1.

South Africa A declared their second innings at 166/5 with a lead of 306 runs.
Earlier, India A were bowled out for a modest 201 which ensured a sizeable 140-run lead for the hosts.
South Africans, however, have played sedately in their second innings so far as they consumed 33 overs to score those 58 runs. As they are trailing 0-1 in the series, it will be interesting as to when the declaration comes so that the bowlers have enough time to have a go at the Indian batsmen.
While the openers Reeza Hendricks and Dean Elgar added 53 for the opening wicket, Nadeem (3/56) accounted for the former as he offered a catch to Dinesh Karthik.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
