India A has made a cautious response to a giant 509 of seven announced South African A’s as they completed day two of an initial unofficial test at 125 for one here on Wednesday.

Captain Priyank Panchal and Abhimanyu Ishwaran recaptured 45 and 27 points respectively in the stumps.

Opener Prithvi Shaw (48 out of 45) looked ominous before reaching India A’s first innings over 14. He hit nine fours on his shot.

India, which faced 33 overs on Wednesday, is trailing 384 rounds in the four-day match.

Previously, South African batsmen A continued to dominate bowlers in India A as the home team added 166 runs out of 45.3 overs before announcing their first chances at 509 in seven out of 135.3 overs.

Resuming 343 for three, South Africa Captain Peter Malan was able to add just six runs from his 157 overnight runs when he fell to Navdeep Saini earlier in the day.

Jason Smith, who turned 51 on the first day, added just one run to fall prey to Arzan Nagvasvallah.

But wicket-hitting duo Sinetemba Keshile (82 failed) and George Linde (51) challenged the Indian bowlers by adding 102 runs for the sixth wicket in 27.2 overs.

On Tuesday’s first day, the Indian bowlers had a tough time as Peter Malan and Tony de Zorzi took centuries to push South Africa A to 343 in three out of 90 overs.

After India chose the cup, India got two early wickets before Malan and Zorzi (117) split 217 runs into a third wicket, putting South Africa in a strong position.
