Opener Aiden Markram struck his second successive hundred in as many games as South Africa scored steadily to reach 199 for 5 in 50 overs against Board President's XI on the second day of the rain-curtailed warm-up match on Friday. Markram had earlier scored 161 for South Africa A against India A in a first-class game last week. <p></p> <p></p>On the day, he retired after completing his hundred in a game which has not been accorded first-class status. Markram's innings was an attacking one as he faced 118 deliveries, hitting 18 boundaries and two sixes. His good form augurs well for South Africa as the 24-year-old right-hander was marked as one for the future by India captain Virat Kohli, when they toured the nation back in 2018. <p></p> <p></p>Earlier, opener Dean Elgar was snuffed out by senior pacer Umesh Yadav (1/34), caught by Priyank Panchal in the slip cordon. No. 3 batsman Theunis de Bruyn got one from Ishan Porel (1/11) that jagged back in to trap him plumb in-front. The talented Zubayr Hamza (22) hit three fours and a six before left-arm spinner Dharmendra Jadeja (2/52) had him leg before with an arm ball. Jadeja from Saurashtra also had rival skipper Faf Du Plessis (9) the same way. <p></p> <p></p>However before that, Markram and the stodgy Temba Bavuma (55) had a century partnership. The slightly built Bavuma also hit nine fours in his 92-ball unbeaten knock. The two pacers who didn't perform up to the mark were Avesh Khan (0/44 in 10 overs), who got a bit of stick and Mumbai bowler Shardul Thakur (0/34 in 10 overs), who shared the new ball with Umesh. <p></p> <p></p>The most impressive among the pacers was young Bengal speedster Ishan but unfortunately Board President's XI skipper Rohit Sharma only gave him a six-over spell during which he got De Bruyn. <p></p> <p></p><strong>Brief Scores: South Africa</strong> 199/4 in 50 overs (Aiden Markram 100 retired, Temba Bavuma 55, Dharmendra Jadeja 2/52, Ishan Porel 1/11, Umesh Yadav 1/31) vs Board President's XI.
