The day began with Petersen reaching his second half-century of the match with a brace on a thick edge going through third man. It also meant Petersen crossed fifty thrice in the series, including twice in the ongoing match. India pacers Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah asked many questions while biting the outer edges, but couldn’t get a wicket early on.
Rassie van der Dussen pounced on everything with width and also survived a caught behind appeal off Shami as bat touched the ground while looking to drive. Petersen continued to impress with his off-side play and had a reprieve in 59 when Jasprit Bumrah found an outer edge with a peach of a delivery but Cheteshwar Pujara couldn’t hold onto the catch at the first slip. Van der Dussen clipped Umesh Yadav through mid-wicket while Petersen took two more boundaries through the off-side off Shami and Bumrah. The 54-run partnership was broken by Shardul Thakur, who got Petersen to chop on to his stumps and fall 18 runs short of his maiden Test hundred. Eventually, Bavuma along with Van der Dussen took the side to victory as the runs never stopped coming. India needs to introspect on their batting which has let them down in the series.

IND vs. SA ODI series, a total of 3 ODIs will be played during ongoing India’s tour of South Africa 2021. The ODI series will commence on January 19 with the first game and conclude on January 23 with the final match.
If we talk about India, they last played an ODI series against Sri Lanka, where a second-string squad went to Sri Lanka for a three-match ODI series in July 2021. India won that series 2-1 in the absence of many key players. Prior to that, India’s primary squad faced England in an ODI series long back in March 2021. India won that home series 2-1.
Talking about South Africa, their previous 50-over project was a three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka. During the Sri Lanka tour in September 2021, South Africa played 3 ODI matches. The visitors ended on the losing end 2-1, losing two games out of three.
Let us hope for the best for our team.
