New Delhi: The two-match Test series between South Africa and West Indies has started. On Tuesday, former captain Dean Elgar and Aiden Markram, who came to open the South African team, gave a good start to the team by presenting a great batting view. Both the batsmen together hit 137 runs in 35 overs. Elgar was moving towards his century while batting brilliantly. In the 36th over, he showed his attitude by hitting Joseph’s first ball for a four, but he was dismissed for showing cleverness on the third ball itself.
Jermaine Blackwood took a great catch
Coming over the wicket, as soon as Alzarri Joseph bowled the third ball of this over, this ball bounced after hitting the ball and started going away from the off-stump. On this, Elgar shot cleverly and wanted to hit the ball over the fine leg, but fielder Jermaine Blackwood standing here raised both hands and took such a spectacular catch catching the ball going back that everyone was stunned. After taking this catch, he fell in the ground, but the ball did not leave his hand.
That wicket belongs to the fielder – Blackwood
