Faf du Plessis’ desperate attempt a wrong DRS call


India have in good control in the ongoing third and final test while they have already won the test series but now focusing on the whitewash. Rohit Sharma has started this test series as an opener and scored 500+ runs in this series with three centuries. In the ongoing third Test, Rohit has scored his maiden test double century. He got out after scoring 212 runs in 255 balls with the help of 28 fours and six sixes. When Rohit Sharma was batting on 179, South Africa team appealed for the LBW, but umpire denied the appeal. South African captain Faf Du Plessis went for the DRS.

Dane Piedt was bowling that time; in the review, the ball was missing the stump. So Faf du Plessis’ desperate attempt at DRS leaves him embarrassed.

Anrich Nortje said after the end of day one of the ongoing third tests

“We were definitely better as in the previous Test. We just tried to control the game a little bit better. Unfortunately, we couldn’t get another wicket… It would have been nice to have them four-five down,” Nortje said after the first day’s play.

“We had one or two overs where we went on top, later on, we just pulled it back again. So, maybe, here and there we lost but, in general, a good effort by everyone.

“Overall, it was a good effort by the bowlers. There was a little bit in it this morning, tried to utilise as much, but one or two overs didn’t go our way.”

“I was hoping for a wicket somewhere and to get him was unbelievable, but just try and come with a plan. I try and put as much pressure as possible and finally got the wicket.”

“He bowled really well. He was asking the right questions every time. I thought Lungi backed him up as well. The (bowling) partnership up front was quite decent, so all credit to them.”
