India A all out for 345 after collapse, SA reach 213-3 on day 2
Bengaluru, Aug 11 (PTI) India A suffered a massive collapse to be bowled out for 345 before the visiting South African team reached 213 for three at stumps on the second day of the second four-day 'Test' here.
South Africa's opener Sarel Erwee and No. 3 Zubayr Hamza then struck half-centuries in a 154-run second-wicket partnership to consolidate their position.
They stitched an unbeaten 59-run partnership for the fourth wicket.
Hanuma Vihari, who was batting overnight on 138, managed to add 10 more runs before he was caught by Hamza off Anrich Nortje. His knock was studded with 14 boundaries and came off 295 balls.
After Vihari's departure, Olivier quickly claimed the remaining wickets of Yuzuvendra Chahal (1), Mohammed Siraj (4) and Ankit Rajpoot (0).
Hamza was in aggressive mood as he hammered 93 runs off 125 balls with 15 fours.
Hamza, however, fell to leg-spinner Chahal when he was caught by captain Shreyas Iyer.
Chahal sent him back by trapping him in front of the wicket.
India A first innings: 345 all out in 101 Overs (GH Vihari 148; D Olivier 6/63)
South Africa A first innings: 219 for 3 in 59.5 Overs (Zubayr Hamza 93, SJ Erwee 58; YS Chahal 2/62).
