SA vs IND: Indian magical off spinner R. Ashwin stated that the medical staff will be keeping an eye on pacer, Mohammed Siraj after the latter seemed to have pulled his hamstring while bowling the final ball of the penultimate over of the day.
Siraj stopped as he arrived at the crease and immediately felt his hamstring.
He indicated that he needed assistance and proceeded to walk off the field close to the end of play. Speaking about his status, Ashwin confirmed he is being looked after.
“I asked before going if I could talk about it. Medical staff are assessing him overnight. I am hoping with the history of Siraj that he can come out and give his best,” Ashwin told reporters after the days’ play in Johannesburg.
India opted to bat first after winning the toss and the openers saw off the new ball in the first hour.
The drinks break proved to be fatal as three wickets fell soon after which resulted in the first session going the Proteas’ way.
KL Rahul and Hanuma Vihari slowly built a partnership before both perished in a matter of a few overs.
Ravichandran Ashwin then turned up to play the best knock of the day so far as he helped himself to a fluent 46 before falling in a bid to up the scoring rate.
India was bundled out for 202, with Marco Jansen taking four wickets while the returning Duanne Olivier picked up three.
South Africa then proceeded to lose the wicket of Aiden Markram before Dean Elgar and Keegan Petersen saw the rest of the day’s play off. South Africa now trails by 167 runs with four days to go.
