S Africa set stiff target for India

Pretoria, Aug 26, 2013, PTI:

India ‘A’ were on Monday set a stiff target of scoring 307 runs to win the second and final unofficial ‘Test’ after South Africa ‘A’ declared their second innings at 166 for five on the third and penultimate day here.

At stumps, India were three for one from the four overs they faced in their second innings, needing 304 more runs to win the ‘Test’ with nine wickets in hand.
Captain Cheteshwar Pujara was batting on two while nightwatchman Shahbaz Nadeem was yet to open his account.

Opener Murali Vijay failed for the second time in the match as he was out for a duck off the bowling of Beuran Hendricks in the second over. He had scored just four in the first innings.

It will not be an easy task for the Indians, who have rested the likes of Shikhar Dhawan, Suresh Raina and Rohit Sharma, to score the remaining runs on Tuesday.
India, who had won the first Test of the two-match series by an innings, struggled to get the wickets of South Africa batsmen who batted without taking much risk in the 63 overs they faced in their second innings at the LC de Villiers Oval here.

Left-arm spinner Shahbaz Nadeem took three wickets for 56 runs while off-spinner Parvez Rasool and pacer Ishwar Pandey got a wicket apiece.

Brief scores: South Africa ‘A’: 341 & 166/5 declared in 63 overs (Dean Elgar 62, Justin Ontong 35, Temba Bavuma 27; Shahbaz Nadeem 3-56) vs India ‘A’:  (O/n: 145/6) 201 all out in 70.1 overs: Cheteshwar Pujara 54, Ajinkya Rahane 36, Ambati Rayudu 29, Parveez Rasool 32; Beuran Hendricks 5-36, Simon Harmer 4-74) and 3/1 in 4 overs.
