Day 3 of India’s match vs South Africa: “Need To Wake Up,” says Sunil Gavaskar, denouncing ‘Listless’ India

<p>Day 3 of the first Test match between South Africa and India began with a “listless” start, to which legendary Indian batsman Sunil Gavaskar criticized Rohit Sharma and co. on Thursday. The Indian bowlers did not really worry Dean Elgar or Marco Jansen, and there were even a few fielding blunders that resulted in simple runs. The way India started the opening session of play on Day 3 did not sit well with Gavaskar, who felt that they ought to have been ‘full of enthusiasm’ from the off.</p>

<p>“India must awaken. Up until now, they have been apathetic. At the beginning of the day, they ought to be bursting with enthusiasm, but instead, they have been disorganized. Listless stuff. Maybe people may be a little depressed at tea. Not in the morning, “Gavaskar said in the remark.</p>
<p>After making fielding mistakes, Ravichandran Ashwin and Mohammed Siraj were forced to give up runs, and KL Rahul was unable to maintain an advantage from Jansen.</p>
<p>On day three of the inaugural Test match here on Thursday, South Africa scored 392 for 7 in their first innings at lunchtime, in response to India’s 245 all out.</p>
<p>The two batsmen removed in the morning session as the hosts stretched their advantage to 147 runs were opener Dean Elgar (185), who was playing in his last international series, and Gerald Coetzee (19).</p>
<p>Marco Jansen (72) and Kagiso Rabada (1) were at the crease at halftime.</p>
<p>India scored 245 all out, in brief.</p>
<p>392 for 7 in 100 overs (Dean Elgar 185, Marco Jansen 72 not out, David Bedingham 56; Jasprit Bumrah 2/59, Mohammed Siraj 2/90) is the South African score.</p>
