Johannesburg Test: According to South African middle-order batsman Keegan Petersen, it will not be easy to bat on the wicket of Wanderers for the next 3 days. He has said that this wicket will gradually become more difficult for the batsmen.
Pietersen scored 62 runs on the second day of the Johannesburg Test. He was the only player from South Africa who hit a fifty and took his team beyond the Indian innings score. South Africa got a 27-run lead on the basis of the first innings.
After the match, Pietersen said, ‘I think this wicket will get more difficult for the rest of the match. Certainly it will not improve further. The more runs the Indian team collects from here, the more difficulty will increase for us.
good bowling attack
Pietersen said, ‘Whoever we are facing has a good bowling attack. In such a situation, I would like to say that if we get a target of 200, then it will be better. The more the target moves from here, the farther the match will go from us.
Pietersen further said, ‘Indian bowlers bowled very well. I am happy with my innings but it would have been nice if I could add some more runs to put the team in a better position.
By the end of the second day’s play, the Indian team had lost the wickets of both their openers after scoring 85 runs. At present, Team India has a lead of 58 runs and the pair of Pujara-Rahane is on the crease.
