South African spinner George Linde after the end of day 2
“Those catches they stick or they don’t. Unfortunately, it wasn’t our way; it was Rohit’s. He played well, so well done to him,” the rookie spinner said, referring to the catch that Zubayr Hamza dropped at forward short leg off his bowling when the opener was batting on 28.
“He (Rohit) played well. He gave us that one chance, it wasn’t easy, and after that, he didn’t give a chance,” Linde said.
“It’s been lessons, to be honest. Also, I didn’t expect to play Test cricket. This year I didn’t expect to come back to play the Test series. So when I got the call-up, I was quite nervous,” Linde said.
“Luckily, I had a few days just to settle. And today a few lessons learnt especially at the end.”
“Obviously, consistency is very important. Today, I was a lot better on the offside,” he said.
“Obviously, it was a bad start. It’s not the way we wanted it to go, but tomorrow is another day. We were positive. Guys were smiling in the dressing room, so we are ready for tomorrow. We are not going to sit back and relax; we are going to go forward and try to take the challenge on,” he concluded.
