India could have been in some-more difficulty though for South Africa captain Hashim Amla, who forsaken Rohit Sharma and Rahane while fielding in a slips.

Rahane stood high among a hull even as wickets fell during unchanging intervals during a other end. Dropped by Amla while batting on 78, he done full use of a postpone to be dominant on 89 with 9 bounds and a integrate of sixes.

This was Rahane’s eighth half-century in Test cricket.

He was concerned in dual essential partnerships — a 70-run mount with captain Virat Kohli and a 61-run duet with Ravindra Jadeja (24) — to assistance a hosts strech a important position during stumps.

Kohli (44) and opener Shikhar Dhawan (33) also batted good before being discharged by Piedt.

Struggling during 139/6 going into a tea break, a Indians done a liberation of sorts in a final event of a day, putting on 92 runs for a detriment of Jadeja’s wicket.

Ravichandran Ashwin was batting on 6 during a other finish when bad light forced a umpires to call off a day’s play.

Opting to bat after winning a toss, India were off to a delayed start with South African pacers Morne Morkel and Abbott gripping a parsimonious line.

Indian openers Murali Vijay and Dhawan struggled to negotiate a whinging line and length, inching their approach to 29 in a initial 15 overs.

Vijay was propitious to get a postpone on a personal measure of 10 when he nicked an effusive smoothness from Abott to AB de Villiers during second trip that was adjudged to be a no-ball.

The Tamil Nadu batsman suffered a nasty blow when he was astounded by a additional rebound of an Abbott delivery. The round reared adult from around a good length mark and brushed his gloves before attack Vijay on a abdomen.

Piedt gave a visitors a breakthrough when Vijay edged one to Amla in a slips.

Dhawan, who has struggled via a series, was in many improved form on a day. The left-hander strike 4 boundaries, including an glorious expostulate by a covers off Morkel.

Pujara, one of a many successful Indian batsmen in this series, continued his excellent form during a other end. A bit discreet during a start of his knock, Pujara grew some-more assured as a innings wore on, outstanding a full toss from leg-spinner Imran Tahir for a 6 in a final over before lunch.

The Proteas struck wilful blows roughly immediately after lunch, stealing Dhawan and Pujara in uninterrupted overs.

Piedt trapped Dhawan leg before with one that incited neatly before attack a Delhi batsman on his pads in front of off and middle.

Pujara, who seemed set for a large knock, was sent behind to a pavilion in a really subsequent over by a glorious smoothness from Abbott. The South African pacer constructed an incoming smoothness from a fullish length that pierced a opening between bat and pad before attack a off-stump.

Kohli and Rahane afterwards came together to try and solid a boat. The twin were aided by a delayed spin of a representation that authorised them to adjust and play their shots.

It was Piedt who again struck a essential blow for a visitors when he sent Kohli behind to a pavilion. Kohli constructed a absolute brush that strike Temba Bavuma during brief leg and went adult in a air. Wickekeeper Dane Vilas came rushing from behind a stumps and dived to make a catch.

Abbott was detrimental not to boot Rohit Sharma when a Mumbai batsman — who was nonetheless to open his comment during a time — edged an effusive smoothness that was forsaken by Amla in a slips.

But a Proteas did not have to wait too prolonged for their subsequent wicket as in a really subsequent round that he faced, Rohit strike a skier off Piedt to Tahir during prolonged on.

Abbott struck with a final round before a tea break, reversing a round into Wriddhiman Saha. The Indian wicketkeeper was beaten by a gait and transformation as a round pierced his counterclaim before holding out a stumps.

Later, Jadeja assimilated hands with Rahane to expostulate India’s recovery.
