Philander eyeing series whitewash against India

The Proteas are aiming for nothing less than a series whitewash ahead of the third Sunfoil Freedom Test match against India starting at the Bidvest Wanderers stadium on Wednesday. Proteas bowler, Vernon Philander, insists that the match is not a ‘dead-rubber’, but rather an opportunity to strengthen their dominance over the visitors with one eye on the ICC Test rankings.

A 3-0 series win will take the Proteas level with India at the top of the ICC Test rankings – India will remain first by a decimal point- with the four-match series against Australia in March providing an opportunity for the team to topple India by the April 3rd cut-off date.

Kohli's 85* keeps India in the game after top order crumbles again

India returned some of the largesse that the Proteas had dished out to them on day one as the two battled for first innings superiority on day two of the second Sunfoil Freedom Test match at SuperSport Park on Sunday.

India’s key initial target was to remove the remaining four Proteas first innings wickets as quickly as possible when play resumed but they made life hard for themselves as they missed two chances offered by Kagiso Rabada and one by Faf du Plessis as the latter rallied the home side’s lower order to the extent that they put on 83 runs for the last four wickets, 66 of which were scored on the second morning as Du Plessis completed 17th career half-century (63 off 142 balls, 9 fours).
