India A Vs South Africa A Unofficial Test First Day: Pieter Malan And Tony De Zorzi Hits Centuries

India A vs South Africa A Unofficial Test: In the ongoing unofficial Test match between India and South Africa A teams, the first day was very bad for the Indian players. The young bowlers of the team got beaten up a lot. South Africa scored 343 for the loss of just 3 wickets on the first day, thanks to centuries from South African opener Peter Malan and middle-order batsman Tony De Georgi.

216 runs partnership between Malan and Georgi
Indian bowlers started very well but they could not carry it forward. Fast bowlers Navdeep Saini and Nagwaswala dropped 2 wickets for South Africa within 14 runs. Sarel Irvi and Renard Van Tonder went on to get out for naught but the 216-run partnership between Peter Malan and Tony de Georgie left the Indian bowlers completely exhausted. Georgi fell victim to Umran Malik after scoring 117 runs, while Peter Malan returned unbeaten to the pavilion after scoring 157 runs. Along with him, Jason Smith also remained unbeaten after scoring 51 runs. There has also been a 112-run partnership between the South African players for the fourth wicket.

Indian spinners breathless
The Indian fast bowlers performed average on the first day of the test match but the Indian spinners proved to be a complete flop. Krishnappa Gautam, Rahul Chahar and Baba Aparajith could not succeed in taking even a single wicket. On the other hand, fast bowlers Navdeep Saini, Arjan Nagwaswala and Umran Malik got one wicket each.

Here is the playing XI of Team India:
Priyank Panchal (captain), Prithvi Shaw, Abhimanyu Easwaran, Hanuma Vihari, Baba Aparajith, Upendra Yadav (wicketkeeper), Krishnappa Gautam, Rahul Chahar, Navdeep Saini, Arjan Nagwaswala and Umran Malik.
