Hola! Welcome to CricketCountry’s live coverage of Day Four of the second unofficial Test match between India A and South Africa A at Wayanad. India A at stumps on Day three were 47 for 8 with a lead of 157 runs after bowling out the opponents for 260 on the opening day of the match. Most of the second day was wasted due to the rain as the play began only after lunch. The Proteas struggled to get the tailenders out with Akshar Patel and Karn Sharma batting on 69(93) and 19(54) respectively. The former delivered with the ball as well when he had claimed five wickets in the first innings before the hosts received an excellent start from Abhinav Mukund (75), Jiwanjot Singh (52), and Ambati Rayudu (71).
