However, after this the team lost its 6 wickets without scoring any runs. The most surprising thing was that the team lost 6 wickets in just two overs and did not score even a single run.

By the end of the first day’s play, South Africa had lost three wickets in their second innings. Many people heavily criticized the pitch of the first day of the second test. Everyone presented their views regarding the pitch of this match. Former South African player and batting consultant Ashwell Prince has also given his statement on this.

Regarding the pitch of the first day of the second Test, Ashwell Prince said, ‘A few years ago I was playing in the UK. This was Nottingham and the locals there said that when the ground was built its characteristics changed. I don’t know whether something similar has happened this time also or not. A lot of work is going on in Newlands too.

The decision to bat first was right: Ashwell Prince

The former South African batsman further said, ‘If the weather had been a little rainy, we would have chosen to bowl first. But the sky was completely clear and the pitch was also quite good. I don’t think our batsmen thought at all that there would be so much bounce here. The decision to bat first was right.

The play on the second day of the second test between these two teams has started. South Africa has taken the lead of runs in this match and now if the Indian team wants to win this match, they will have to all out the hosts as soon as possible.
