West Indies vs South Africa
STUMPS, 2nd Test, Gros Islet, Jun 18 - 22 2021,
West Indies South Africa 218/5
Day 1 - West Indies chose to field. CRR: 2.65
The Proteas were in trouble early after Aiden Markram unnecessarily sparred at a wide and short delivery. He still seems to struggle with shot selection and he was out for 0. Petersen and van der Dussen were dismissed early on and were victims of the exaggerated movement. Elgar and Verreynne put together a good partnership, but Elgar was bowled by a beauty for 77 of 237 balls. It was had work for the captain.
Verreynne was caught behind for 27, but De Kock is still there and looking solid on 59 not out. South Africa should be the happier team at the end of day 1.
