South Africa v India

‘Keegan Petersen CAN play!’ – South Africa batter wins high praise from AB and others for gritty knock against India

by Wisden Staff 2 minute read

Keegan Petersen’s composed knock of 72 helped South Africa remain in the contest against India, and won him high praise in the cricketing community.

After a scrappy start at Centurion, Keegan found his groove in Johannesburg, playing a crucial role in a South Africa win. He continued his good form at Cape Town, scoring a fighting 72 against a challenging Indian bowling attack. His returns have impressed many, including a retired South Africa legend.

At 28 and with more than 100 first-class games to his name, Keegan is a known entity for quite a few in the South Africa domestic circles.

His knock of 72 only added to his growing reputation as a solid presence at the top for South Africa, whose batting has suffered from a number of high-profile retirements in the last few years.
