Hardik Pandya scored a strokeful 95-ball 93-run innings to emerge as the highest scorer for the visitors. He added 99 runs along with Bhuvneshwar Kumar (25) for the eighth wicket to keep India afloat in the match.

The effort saw India post 209 in reply to South Africa’s 286 after struggling at 92/7 at one stage on the second day of the first Test in Cape Town.

The counterattacking knock left Twitter awe-struck:

Praiseworthy knock
