India fight back with late wickets By

Borde, who served as the vice-captain of the Indian team under Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi, also exuded confidence that the Virat Kohli-led side would bounce back in the second Test starting at Centurion on Saturday. Two more wickets fell in the next 14 balls. "Many of our batsmen were either caught behind or were caught in the slips", Borde said on Friday.

Borde, a former Chairman of national selectors, also advised the Indian batsman to take stance from outside the crease. While the conditions obviously are hard to tackle, they need to show some positive intent to take on the rival attack which will be preying on their perceived weakness against bounce. "I think day two and three will be a very good batting day".

South Africa seemed to be cruising in the ongoing Centurion Test on the day one.

"We prepare bowling friendly conditions because we want to win Test matches".

South Africa resumed Day 2 on 269 for 6 as India started the proceedings with Ishant Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah. The surface offers pace and bounce and there is often swing; on the eve of the match it looked brown with no green grass on it. Things should be no different even though this Test pitch will be groundsman Bryan Bloy's first since he was hired two years ago. South African speedsters will once again look to pepper the batsmen with short-pitched deliveries on a pitch which has traditionally helped seamers.

"It's special to be ranked as the No.1 Test bowler in the world".

Trump's 'shithole' remarks targeted at Hatians, Africans sparks global outrage
Several African leaders, ambassadors and different dignitaries have expressed shock and pain following President Trump's comments. The body has since issued a statement calling for the United States leader to apologise for the remarks.

"First match, ok, this was quite an eye-opener to them".

In a period in which the consistency of Amla's form has been questionable - his three hundreds in 2017 came against weak Sri Lankan and Bangladesh attacks at home - and his temperament a touch on the impatient side, that shot was the reassurance that even against more challenging packs, Amla is still ace. You can follow the live score updates of the match here.

He is among the only three Indian batsmen in worldwide cricket, who has got hundreds across all formats, apart from Suresh Raina and Rohit Sharma. For a batsman to adjust is big challenge. "He's probably been our most consistent and solid player away from home", Kohli said on Friday.

"It could be useful, because opening start is important for the team". Bowling the fourth stump line, he got ABD to go for the cut and the ball was too close to the body, thereby ensuring that the inside edge got the ball to drag onto the stumps. "You need to find the ideal balance to do well in South Africa especially where there is more bounce", he said.

Ashwin was pleased with how the last session went for India. Movement in the air and off the deck exposed the likes of Murali Vijay, Shikhar Dhawan, Cheteshwar Pujara, Rohit Sharma and captain Kohli. Leave the ball well but don't get into a shell. "That is the only difference I see".
