It was a direct throw by Ravichandran Ashwin and some laziness on the batsman part that Team India got the wicket of well-settled Keshav Maharaj in the post Tea session of Day 1 during the ongoing first Test in Capetown.
Earlier in the second session, the South Africa spinner was yet to open his account when Bhuvneshwar Kumar produced the perfect edge of his bat and Shikhar Dhawan floored a sitter at third slip. The ball seemed perfectly in line to enter skipper Virat Kohli‘s waiting palms when Dhawan grabbed at the ball and ended up flooring it. Maharaj went on to score 35 as the last four South African wickets added 84 crucial runs on a wicket that has seen batsmen struggle.
After Maharaj’s dismissal, Kohli’s wife Anushka Sharma and Dhawan’s wife Ayesha Mukherjee were also seen enjoying the Proteas wicket in the stands.
