In spite of half centuries by Hanuma Vihari and Abhimanyu Easwaran, India A didn’t have adequate chance to arrive at the 234-run target set by South Africa A, on the last of the second four-dayer at the Mangaung Oval, on Friday (December 3).

Continuing the day on 115 for 5, the hosts were put on the backfoot right on time with for the time being hitters – George Linde and Tony de Zorzi falling early. In any case, they figured out how to reach 212 under the watchful eye of getting bowled out, graciousness convenient commitments by Marco Jansen (28) and Glenton Stuurman (26 not out).

The last five wickets of South Africa’s subsequent innings tumbled to pacers with Arzan Nagaswalla and Navdeep Saini sacking a support each, while Ishan Porel picking one more wicket on the last day to get back with three shockingly.

Accordingly, the guests, who were needed to score at nearly run-a-ball, were fixed back ahead of schedule with captain Priyank Panchal succumbing to a duck. Prithvi Shaw, who began on a fast note with three limits, was bowled by Stuurman for a 14-ball 18, leaving India A reeling at 22 for 2 in the seventh over.
