IND vs SA 3rd Test 2019: India played yet another great game against Proteas in IND vs SA 3rd Test Day 3. South Africa suffered a severe batting collapse on the Day 3 in the 1st and 2nd innings. South Africa, who started the day at 9 for 2 in the first innings on Day 3, were bowled out for 162.
"UPDATE - Wriddhiman Saha has been replaced by Rishabh Pant who has taken a blow right on the end of the gloves," Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) tweeted. Earlier in the day, South Africa batsman Theunis de Bruyn was named as concussion replacement for Dean Elgar, who was struck by India bowler Umesh Yadav.
At the start of the day, South Africa came on to bat at 9/2 in their first innings. The Proteas batting line-up was dented by the hosts and were bundled out for mere 162 runs. After being enforced a follow on, the visitors continued their dismal run and lost wickets upfront.
Rishabh Pant replaced Wriddhman Saha as India’s wicket-keeper for the remainder of Day 3 in third India vs South Africa Test match. Pant substituted Saha after the latter suffered a thumb injury on Ravichandran Ashwin’s delivery during India vs SA, 3rd Test, Day 3.
With the BCCI not letting players under contract participate in any foreign league, none of the current crop of Indian players feature in the Abu Dhabi T10. But the former player feels it would be nice to have them if allowed.
De Bruyn, who played the first two Tests for South Africa, was left of the initial playing XI in the third Test. However, the concussion injury to Elgar gave De Bruyn a chance to bat and the latter will certainly want to make a mark. The concussion rule was introduced just before the Ashes 2019.
After enforcing a follow-on on South Africa in the third Test in Ranchi, the Indian captain Virat Kohli surpassed Mohammad Azharuddin to enforce most number of follow-ons on opposition among Indian players. With this, Indian team has enforced follow-on 8 times under the leadership of Virat Kohli. Azhar, who lead India in 47 Tests, had enforced follow-on 7 times on opposition.

UAE were shocked by Oman in their opening game of the 2019 T20 World Cup Qualifiers. The victory took Oman to top of Group B. United Arab Emirates are placed fourth.
The visitors again got a miserable start as Quinton de Kock and Zubayr Hamza were dismissed early. At present, Henrich Klaseen and Dean Elgar are on the crease batting at 0 and 16 respectively. The duo will aim to put on some fight and make a comeback.
As expressive as he is on the cricket field, India skipper Virat Kohli was once again the topic of discussion on social media for his candid expression which was shared by Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
Oman have made a brilliant start in the ongoing tournament and will look to continue their good run in the forthcoming clash as well. However, they will be challenged by an experienced Irish side who are one of the strongest teams in the tournament.
The ongoing tournament will decide two teams who will feature in the ICC World T20 2020 in Australia. Kenya played their last ICC event with the Test-playing nation back in 2011 when they played the 50-over cricket World Cup. While the last time when Bermuda played with the big boys was in the 2007 Cricket World Cup.
Kenya and Bermuda have suffered defeats in the matches they have respectively played so far in the ICC Twenty20 World Cup Qualifiers. Cricket fans, who play fantasy games like Dream11 will find all details to build a strong team for the BEN vs KEN match in the T20 World Cup Qualifiers.
