IND A vs SA A: Watch - Rahul Chahar has caught throwing sunglasses after the umpire gives not out


The A team of India has toured South Africa with some young talents in it. The 1st unofficial Test has been going on at the Mangaung Oval in Bloemfontein. India A won the toss and decided to take the field.

Navdeep Saini gave the first breakthrough in the first over and removed Sarel Erwee for a duck. Following him, Arzan Nagwaswalla sent back Raynard van Tonder for a duck. But the skipper Pieter Malan and Tony de Zorzi stood strong in the middle and started to dominate the opposition bowlers all around the park.

Both the batters added 217 runs for the third wicket partnership before Umran Malik removes Tony de Zorzi for 117 runs. Then Jason Smith joined with the skipper and added 52 runs before returning to the dugout. Navdeep Saini was the man who dismissed the well-settled Pieter Malan for 163 runs.

Following that, Sinethemba Qeshile and Geroge Linde played well in the lower-order and scored 72 and 51 runs respectively. Then South Africa A declared the innings with a mammoth of 509 runs on the board.

Prithvi Shaw and Priyank Panchal opened the innings for India and gave the expected start that team needed from them. Prithvi Shaw played an attacking sort of game and scored 48 off 45 balls before being dismissed by Lutho Sipamla.

Then Abhimanyu Easwaran joined with the skipper and played a crucial inning in the middle. Both the batters dominated the opposition bowlers and added 142 runs for the second wicket partnership.

Priyank Panchal who was batting on 96 runs had to return to the pavilion after being LBW'ed by George Linde. But Abhimanyu Easwaran played under his control and got the three-digit numbers to his name.

Besides, during the South Africa innings, Rahul Chahar appealed for an LBW but the umpire didn't seem to impress at all. He refused his appeal as Rahul Chahal was seen throwing his sunglasses on the field.
