Murali Vijay is on thebrink of his first overseas ton while Cheteshwar Pujara is playing solidly as India look to pile on runs on Day Two of the second Test against South Africa at Durban on Friday. Bad light had stopped play in the last session of first day when India were on 181 for one. Vijay is batting on 91 while Pujara is on 58.
After tea on Day One, Vijay got off to a good start by smashing Peterson for a boundary through the covers. He later charged at him and lofted him twice for boundaries through the off-side. With those strokes, he moved into the 90s. Steyn was troubling the Indian batsmen and then the light deteriorated. The umpires then decided to call it.
Ultimately, the day’s play was called off 40 minutes before the scheduled close.
India 181 for 1 (Murali Vijay 91*, Cheteshwar Pujara 58*; Morne Morkel 1 for 26) vs South Africa.
