India have taken their lead over South Africa past the 200-run mark in the first Test in Johannesburg. India are at 165 for two after 53 overs in their second innings. Their lead is 201 runs. Cheteshwar Pujara is batting on 60 and Virat Kohli is on 34.
The post-tea session on Day Three began with India at 109 for two. Kohli started scoring runs easily after the break with a few fours. In the meantime, Pujara reached his fourth Test half-century.
Off-spinner Imran Tahir was targeted by the Indian batsmen and was carted away for a few runs. South Africa captain AB de Villiers was forced to keep a spread-out field when Tahir bowled. Then he dropped a catch to dismiss Pujara. The batsman hit one back to Tahir, who failed to hold onto the catch in his follow-through.
India are looking set to get a big total and in the process extend their lead.
