(AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSICC posted the 3rd day’s summary as ‘DAY TWO REPORT’The mistake was also seen on the ICC websiteICC hadn’t deleted the tweet till the time this article was publishedThe International Cricket Council (ICC) on Saturday made a huge mistake after the end of the 3rd day’s play between India and South Africa. As is usual practice, ICC tweeted the day’s report on its Twitter page. But there was a glaring error in the tweet and the actual report which was somehow missed by the governing body.ICC had captioned the report as thus: “Philander and Maharaj shared a 109-run partnership but couldn’t stop India finishing off the South African innings by stumps. #INDvSA DAY TWO REPORT”. ICC Twitter screengrabWhat caught the fans’ eye was the last 3 words: ‘DAY TWO REPORT’, as it should have actually said ‘DAY 3 REPORT’. The mistake, however, went a level deeper if one happened to open the particular report.The subtitle of the day’s report on ICC’s website went: ‘Ind v SA, 2nd Test, day two, report’ – again erroneously calling the 3rd day as the 2nd. ICC website screengrabIt should be noted that the tweet in question, which was posted at 17.41 IST, had still not been deleted by the ICC and neither was the day’s report edited to reflect the correct day of the ongoing Pune Test.Earlier, South Africa finally showed some fight on the 3rd day in Pune and the fight came from unexpected corners for the Proteas on the third day at the MCA Stadium.After India had run through the top-order, Vernon Philander and Keshav Maharaj were involved in a record 9th wicket stand to stall India. The duo batted out 43.1 overs before Ra Ashwin (4/69) wrapped up the innings handing India a massive 326-run lead.advertisementAlso Read | India vs South Africa 2nd Test: India take 326-run lead after Philander-Maharaj resistanceAlso Read | India vs South Africa 2nd Test: Intruder in Pune leaves Sunil Gavaskar fumingFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
