India have put up a huge total in the final test against South Africa. They have declaired after posting 497 on the board on the back of a double century of Rohit Sharma, century from Ajinkya Rahane and a fifty from Ravindra Jadeja. However, bowlers are no less as they have been taking wickets on regular intervals and Umesh Yadav deserves a mention.
He did an unthinkable as he dismissed Faf du Plessis in his first over of the third day. Umesh Yadav gave a good length ball which forced du Plessis play for inside the line but it knocked out the of the stump. It provided a perfect start for India.
Umesh Yadav did it on the second day as well when he scalped South Africa opening batsman Quinton de Kock in his first over. He gave a dangerous bouncer and trapped the batsman as well. Eventually de Kock ended up giving a catch to India wicket-keeper Wriddhiman Saha.
However, South Africa has been struggling in the middle as they lost 6 wickets where only Zubayr Hamza and Temba Bavuma did well. Hamza scored a 79-ball 62 before Jadeja dismissed him. Bavuma scored 32 off 72 before getting out and South Africa are at 129 with the loss of 6 wickets before lunch at the time of writing the article.
