Indian fielding coach Trevor Penney was optimistic that India can survive on Day 5 and take the fight to the South Africans. He went on to say that Faf du Plessis’s catch to dismiss Shikhar Dhawan was ‘amazing’. Initially, he said du Plessis was shot before he latched on to the ball.
“The mood in the dressing room is just normal. Our batsmen know what their roles are and who the South African bowlers are. They have studied them and played against them. So we need to dig deep and fight the day out,” Penney said.
“We have played good cricket over the last couple of weeks and the team is very upbeat about the possibility of trying to bat out tomorrow,” he added.
“At this particular stage, he wasn’t very happy because the light was poor and they could have come off at any stage. I think he was pretty disappointed,” said the coach, describing Dhawan’s mood.
