Wayward Indian bowling helping South Africa keep their hopes alive in 2nd test. 

Bumrah was off-color today vs South Africa. He gave away too many runs. In fact, out of 118 runs, SA scored Bumrah alone gave away 42runs. This has been a problem of Bumrah many times. He bowls waywardly, which costs India badly as Team India depends significantly on his bowling. Wayward Indian bowling helping SA chase down 240 runs.

Elgar was fortunate as he missed almost half of the deliveries he faced against the Indian pace attack. But the most crucial thing is SA captain is still staying firm rock-solid taking his team to the most significant win after a long time vs top-side India. 

Rabada game changer:

India in the second all-out for 266runs. Pujara and Rahane played career-saving innings for themselves. Both scored 50 and then got out in the bowling of Rabada. Today SA pacer Rabada was in outstanding form. He bowled at the right areas, which created pressure on Indian batters. At last, he was gifted with 3 crucial wickets, limiting India’s score below 300. 

To chase down 240 is still not easy. We might see a cluster of wickets at any time. Anything is possible tomorrow. SA is desperate to win this match and keep the series alive. Elgar would like to counter-attack against the wayward Indian bowling attack. If Bumrah finds his line and length on the 4th day, SA can lose wickets quickly. 

Thakur is the only bowler who looked like taking wickets. Shami was wayward so was Bumrah. Ashwin took one wicket. If India needs to win, they have to take quick wickets, which frankly looks challenging as Bumrah is not finding a good line and length and conceding runs. This is not a spinning pitch, so Ashwin is not so effective. SA has the best chance to chase down this average score of 240 runs. It will be a great day tomorrow India vs SA 2nd test at wanderers.

Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship

When everyone else was slipping, Belgium’s Thomas Pieters stood firm.

An Pieters of Belgium wins even-par round of 72 may not reveal how well he played on a golf course that was becoming increasingly hostile by the minute, but it was enough to win him the $8 million Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship.

Pieters’ win was his sixth on the DP World Tour and his second in his last three starts. He will turn thirty years old on Thursday, and he will have plenty to celebrate. He will move up to world No. 31 inside the all-important top-50 that grants players automatic entry into significant championships and will receive a whopping $1.36 million check (AED 5 million).

Pieters finished with a solitary birdie (on the par-3 8th) and a solitary bogey (on the par-5 11th) for a 72, bringing his four-day total to 10-under par 278.

Shubhankar Sharma (71) of India and Rafael Cabrera-Bello (70) of Spain were tied for second, one shot behind Pieters. Sharma’s finish was his best in a Rolex Series event, surpassing his tied seventh in Italy and Turkey in 2019. Both Sharma and Cabrera-Bello birdied the final hole to finish one stroke ahead of Frenchman Victor Dubuisson (69) and Norway’s Viktor Hovland, the world number seven, tied for fourth at 8-under par 280.

Josh Hill, a 17-year-old amateur from Dubai who cut spectacularly, battled hard but shot a three-over-par 75 with three bogeys in the final four holes. He tied for 58th place with a three-over-par 291.

Pieters began the day at 10-under par, one stroke behind overnight leader Scott Jamieson and tied with Shane Lowry of Ireland.

Lowry, who won the title in 2019 and then went on to win the Open Championship at Royal Portrush, faded after a triple-bogey seven on the first hole. Jamieson did not last long either; four birdies in his first five holes meant Pieters had new rivals.

“Some of the world’s best players were here this week, which gives me a lot of confidence that I’ll finish high on the leaderboard and compete with them.” So there’s a lot to look forward to right now.”

Jamieson finished in a tie for the tenth place after shooting a 77.

The highest-ranked player in the field, world number two Collin Morikawa (75), finished tied 62nd, while McIlroy (69) finished tied 12th. The DP World Tour then heads to Dubai for the $8 million Slync Dubai Desert Classic, the second Rolex Series event in a row.

Ramos scores

PSG wins 4-0 over Reims to extend their Ligue 1 lead to 11 points.

Messi started on the bench after returning from Covid, while Kylian Mbappe returned to the starting lineup after a groyne strain, and Ramos made only his second league start of the season. Keylor Navas, the team’s goalkeeper, also returned, rushing back into the lineup after a bout of Covid during to an injury to Italy’s Gianluigi Donnarumma.

PSG took the lead in the final minute of a sluggish first half, thanks to Marco Verratti’s first Ligue 1 goal since May 2017.

After the break, PSG picked up the pace.

Ramos scores

Ramos, who joined the club from Real Madrid in the summer, scored his first goal. The central defender was the first to react to a loose ball from a PSG corner. After Predrag Rajkovic parried his first shot, the Spaniard responded quickly to slam the rebound.

That goal not only tied Ramos with Messi for the most league goals this season, but it also signaled Messi’s arrival. Messi decor up Verratti for a shot that deflected off two defenders and into the top corner in the 67th minute. PSG matched their biggest league win with a fourth goal from Danilo Pereira. Earlier, Khephren Thuram’s goal set up a crucial 2-0 away win for Nice, who defeated strugglers Metz to reclaim second place.

Stephy Mavididi scored twice in stoppage time after Elye Wahi gave the home team a 13th-minute lead. Wissam Monaco fell to seventh place after Ben Yedder and Vanderson scored.
