PRETORIA, South Africa (Reuters) – Debutant Lungi Ngidi took the key wicket of India captain Virat Kohli as South Africa closed in on victory in the second Test with the tourists reeling at 35 for three on a misbehaving wicket at the close on day four yesterday.India are chasing 287 for victory to square the three-match series, but that looks a long way off on a wicket providing extreme variable bounce.Cheteshwar Pujara (11) and Parthiv Patel (five) will resume on the final day, trying to find a way to score runs against a fired-up home seam attack getting plenty of assistance from the pitch.Kohli, who scored a brilliant 153 in the first innings, would have been key to India’s plans in the run chase, but he was trapped lbw for five by an excellent delivery from Ngidi that came back into him sharply and kept low.Ngidi, 21, had earlier bagged the wicket of opener Lokesh Rahul for four with his first delivery of the day, a loosener the batsman carved straight to Keshav Maharaj at point.Murali Vijay (nine) was the first batsman to fall, bowled by Kagiso Rabada from another ball that kept low.India had worked their way back into the Test by bowling South Africa out for 258 in their second innings.Starting the day on 90 for two, AB de Villiers (80) and Dean Elgar (61) put on 141 for the third wicket, a potentially match-winning partnership.But de Villiers was one of three wickets for the excellent Mohammed Shami (4-49) in the morning, followed by Elgar and Quinton de Kock (12).Ishant Sharma (2-40) and Jasprit Bumrah (3-70) wrapped up the innings, despite a battling 48 from home captain Faf du Plessis.The International Cricket Council (ICC) also announced yesterday that they had fined Kohli 25 percent of his match fee and handed him one demerit point for an incident the previous day.He was sanctioned for repeatedly complaining to umpire Michael Gough about a damp ball after a rain delay and aggressively throwing the ball to the ground.SOUTH AFRICA 1st innings 335 INDIA first innings 307 SOUTH AFRICA 2nd innings (o/n 90 for 2)Aiden Markram lbw Jasprit Bumrah 1Dean Elgar c Lokesh Rahul b Mohammed Shami 61Hashim Amla lbw Jasprit Bumrah 1AB de Villiers c Parthiv Patel b Mohammed Shami 80Faf du Plessis c & b Jasprit Bumrah 48Quinton de Kock c Parthiv Patel b Mohammed Shami 12Vernon Philander c Murali Vijay b Ishant Sharma 26Keshav Maharaj c Parthiv Patel b Ishant Sharma 6Kagiso Rabada c Virat Kohli b Mohammed Shami 4Morne Morkel not out 10Lungi Ngidi c Murali Vijay b Ravichandran Ashwin 1Extras: (b-2, lb-5, w-1) 8Total: (all out, 91.3 overs) 258Fall of wickets: 1-1, 2-3, 3-144, 4-151, 5-163, 6-209, 7-215, 8-245, 9-245.Bowling: Ashwin 29.3-6-78-1, Bumrah 20-3-70-3, (w-1), Sharma 17-3-40-2, Shami 16-3-49-4, Pandya 9-1-14-0.INDIA 2nd inningsMurali Vijay b Kagiso Rabada 9Lokesh Rahul c Keshav Maharaj b Lungi Ngidi 4Cheteshwar Pujara not out 11Virat Kohli lbw Lungi Ngidi 5Parthiv Patel not out 5Extras: (b-1) 1Total: (3 wkts, 23.0 overs) 35Fall of wickets: 1-11, 2-16, 3-26.Bowling: Philander 6-3-6-0, Rabada 5-2-9-1, Ngidi 6-2-14-2, Morkel 5-3-4-0, Maharaj 1-0-1-0.
Published on September 15, 2014 at 12:11 pm Contact Jacob: [email protected] | @Jacob_Klinger_ MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. — There was almost no break for Cooper Rush.The Central Michigan quarterback started the game stringing passes over the Syracuse defensive line into open pockets on either side of the field. But the Chippewas’ (2-1) opening possession proved to be their only scoring drive as Syracuse shut CMU down in the Orange’s (2-0) 40-3 victory on Saturday.“I know they played mad,” defensive line coach Tim Daoust said. “I know they played upset. It rolls downhill from a coach down to them that they needed to play a better football game today.”After failing to contain Villanova quarterback John Robertson in Week 1, the Orange pass rush recorded five sacks, forced and recovered a fumble and recorded eight tackles for a loss.Central Michigan only managed 183 passing yards off 18 completions.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWith Syracuse leading 17-3 late in the second quarter, CMU had second-and-10 on its own 47 and a chance to regain momentum before halftime. But SU linebacker Cam Lynch’s delayed blitz forced Rush into a throwaway. On the next play, the Chippewas’ quarterback fluffed a throw off his back foot, dropping his pass short in front of an open Courtney Williams.Lynch’s safety is shown in this GIF:“It started up front,” Syracuse cornerback Julian Whigham said. “The D-line and linebackers got a lot of pressure. They just didn’t have time to get the ball up.”Daoust rotated in the debuting Wayne Williams with Ryan Sloan, keeping the Orange pass rush fresh and unrelenting. As SU protected a 30-point lead deep into the fourth quarter, freshman linebacker Zaire Franklin subbed in to maintain the same pressure Lynch had thrown at Rush all day.As SU looks toward its next game against Maryland on Saturday at 12:30 p.m. in the Carrier Dome, the Orange will need to maintain pressure on opposing quarterbacks. When it does, it allows linebackers to pack the box and frees up its defensive backs to play tight man coverage on the outside.“I want people talking about the defensive line the way the defensive line should be talked about at Syracuse University,” Daoust said. “The way it’s been talked about in the past, where we played mean and nasty and stopped the run and then see if we can get hits on the quarterback.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+
