South Africa’s Keegan Petersen has put up a tough fight against the Indian bowlers in this series and he unveiled a brilliant knock in the first innings of the third and deciding Test in Cape Town. 

Petersen’s 72 helped the Proteas to keep the margin in control. But the batter has lauded the Indian pace bowling attack and said that it’s an “extremely challenging” one. 

"It's (the Indian pace attack) extremely challenging. It's the most challenging I've had in my whole career. You have to be focused and on your mark all the time or else they will expose you," said Petersen in the press conference.

"They test you in terms of scoring, there's not much scoring opportunities. They have not given us much. They are arguably one of the best bowling attacks in the world,” he added. 

The home side was bowled out for 210 in the first innings as India took a 13-run lead. Later, the visitors didn’t have a great start to their second innings after they lost both the openers, Mayank Agarwal and KL Rahul early but skipper Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara didn’t let any more wickets to go down. 

India ended the day’s proceedings at 57/2, leading by 70 runs.
