  • 16:07(IST)

    Over 32: India 92/1 (Vijay 45, Pujara 43)

    Pujara moves into a 40s with a top-edged brush that scampers to a excellent leg boundary. He hasn’t looked as gentle or as certain as Vijay, though he is still there, that is what counts. He drives Tahir thorugh a offside for a integrate more. The representation is not looking as melancholy during a moment.

  • 16:03(IST)

    Over 31: India 86/1 (Vijay 45, Pujara 37)

    Right on cue, Rabada comes back. He finally gives divided runs with a far-reaching legside smoothness that whips past a screw and goes for 4 byes. But given it was extras – a initial of a innings – Rabada doesn’t get credited for them and it is another maiden.

    Oh, and India’s lead is now past 100.

  • 15:59(IST)

    Over 30: India 82/1 (Vijay 45, Pujara 37)

    Tahir replaces Elgar and dual runs are a result.

  • 15:54(IST)

    Over 29: India 80/1 (Vijay 44, Pujara 36)

    Philander into his third over of this spell. Not certain because Rabada was taken off after 3 overs given he hadn’t conceded a run. Perhaps Amla customarily wants to play them in brief spells though Rabada was building vigour that has given been expelled by Elgar. Meanwhile Philander gives divided customarily a single.

  • 15:49(IST)

    Over 28: India 79/1 (Vijay 44, Pujara 35)

    Elgar manages to find a corner of Pujara’s bat though a round has no gait on it and it gets to trip on a bounce. After Pujara picks adult dual with an inside-edge off an attempted sweep, he rocks behind and pulls Elgar to a low midwicket boundary. That was clinical and brutal.

  • 15:46(IST)

    Over 27:  India 72/1 (Vijay 44, Pujara 28)

    Philander continues from a other finish and Vijay nonchalantly flicks him divided for a integrate of runs. The rest of a over passes though event. And in box any of we are wondering, according to a speed gun, Philander is bowling during 128 kph.


  • 15:41(IST)

    Over 26:  India 70/1 (Vijay 42, Pujara 28)

    South Africa start with Elgar after a break. There are 15 overs left in a day so we competence be finished on time for a change. Vijay picks adult dual with a shave by behind block leg and afterwards moves to 42 with a trip by indicate for a single.

  • 15:35(IST)

    Over 25:  India 67/1 (Vijay 39, Pujara 28)

    Philander is behind so now join from both ends for a initial time today. Pujara flicks a round divided by behind block for a couple. Those are a customarily runs from a over and it is time for drinks.

  • 15:29(IST)

    Over 24:  India 65/1 (Vijay 39, Pujara 26)

    Big eyes from Vijay after a full smoothness from Rabada keeps low. Vijay was means to get down in time to urge it though it clearly astounded him. A third lass on a run for Rabada.

  • 15:25(IST)

    Over 23:  India 65/1 (Vijay 39, Pujara 26)

    Harmer continues. A thick corner that sends a round far-reaching of trip allows Vijay to scurry a singular and move adult a 50 partnership. Harmer switches behind over-the-wicket after that. This time Pujara is means to work him by a legside for a single.

    Woah! Vijay charges Harmer and lofts him sweetly over extra-cover to collect adult four. He is looking good, is Vijay. India need by 82 now.

Fellow spinner Imran Tahir (2/23) and pacer Vernon Philander (2/38) also bowled well. Off-spinner Simon Harmer (1/51) and quick bowler Kasigo Rabada (1/30) also claimed a wicket each.

Experienced quick bowlers Dale Steyn and Philander constructed discernible pitch and parallel transformation with a new round to make life challenging for a Indian batsmen. Philander supposing a visitors with a early breakthrough when he had Shikhar Dhawan held by Amla in a slips.

Dhawan misjudged a transformation of an effusive smoothness as a round found a corner of a bat for a soothing exclusion with a hosts nonetheless to get off a mark.

Thereon, Cheteshwar Pujara and Vijay attempted to solid a innings with a 63-run second wicket partnership. Pujara seemed to be in good knick as he struck 6 liquid boundaries.

But a introduction of Elgar into a South African conflict brought roughly evident formula as a left-armer trapped Pujara leg before. It took a South Africans customarily 4 some-more deliveries to bind another wicket when they discharged Kohli for 1.

The India skipper, who incited 27 on Thursday, did not have a good birthday as he untimely a smoothness from Rabada that went true to Elgar during cover.

Ajinkya Rahane and Vijay were perplexing to solid India’s boat after a challenging morning though a former attempted to expostulate a probing smoothness from Elgar customarily to be held by Amla during slip.

Elgar’s subsequent smoothness constructed another scalp when wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha got out in accurately a same fashion, to be held by Amla during a same mark for a first-ball duck. By now India had been reduced to 102/5.

Amit Mishra customarily lasted a few overs before lofting it to Dale Steyn during mid-on.

Rabada was detrimental to skip out on a wicket when he had Ravichandran Ashwin trapped leg before. Ashwin was on his approach behind to a pavilion, though a exclusion was overruled by a third referee who found that Rabada had over-stepped a line after radio referrals.

The Indians managed some volume of repairs control late in a day as South Africa started their initial innings on a unsure note.
