The final test between India and South Africa is in jeopardy as the pitch is termed as ‘Dangerous’ to bat. India is in a very good position to win this test match, but looks like the pitch may not make it happen.
“It’s certainly not a good pitch for Test cricket. It’s the worst Test pitch I’ve seen at the Wanderers. However, I don’t think it’s a pitch worth abandoning the match for. Scoreboard still reads 100 for 3 in the third innings, so there are still runs being scored. Rating: 4.5/10.”
