rahane pitchJohannesburg: India vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane on Friday said no one blamed the pitch when South African batsman Hashim Amla scored 60-odd runs during the first essay.

The third day of the third Test between South Africa and India was called-off early after a long discussion by the match umpires with the respective team captains following the incident where a back of a length delivery from Jasprit Bumrah hit Deal Elgar on his helmet.

“New ball is challenging but you cannot call it dangerous, When Amla got 60, no one talked about the pitch. Everybody talked about how he played,” the Mumbai batsman told reporters here.

“I hope Elgar is fine, but I don’t think pitch is too dangerous. I don’t know what the ICC is going to do, but as a team our focus is to get on with the game,” Rahane added.
