The third Test between South Africa and India is in news for all the wrong reasons. Though the bowlers are garnering applause for their bowling at the Wanderers pitch; the commentators and viewers are criticizing the pitch for its uneven bounce and cracks at good length.

India managed to score 187 and South Africa replied with 194. But in the second innings, the Indian batsmen found it extremely difficult to negotiate the bounce and carry of the ball, something that hampered the Proteas batsmen as well.

At the lunch break, the umpires were seen in conversation with head groundsman Bethuel Buthelezi and consultant Chris Scott. Both then went to attend to the pitch, along with the regular ground staff.

Twitter was in amazement too as the pitch unraveled its demons in form of cracks at the good length and shared their views via tweets.
