Twitterati mock Hashim Amla’s resistance in 2nd innings of the Delhi Test

South African skipper Hashim Amla has accepted the challenge of taking on the Indian bowlers with unmatched confidence. In the ongoing fourth Test at Delhi, India have posted a mammoth target of 481 runs in the fourth innings for South Africa to chase.

As batting in the fourth innings of a Test match in India is always a difficult task, South Africa have a mountain to climb here at Delhi. They have suffered couple of early blows and now have to play almost four sessions to save the day. Amla is out there in the middle and confronting the pumped Indian attack at a very slow rate. He is biding his time and eyeing for a draw it seems.

At present, Amla has played 181 deliveries and scored just 20 runs from them. Indian fans and followers want to see their side going home with a win as early as possible but Amla has other plans. People have taken to Twitter to express and criticise Amla for being as slow as a snail. South Africa are currently 61 for the loss of two wickets from 59 overs, scoring a tad above one run per over.
