India and South Africa face off on the third day of the ongoing fourth and final Test in Delhi on Saturday, with India in the driver’s seat after gaining a 213-run lead on the second day. South Africa were once again done in by quality spin on a turning track, with Ravindra Jadeja picking five wickets for 30 runs in 12 overs while Ravichandran Ashwin grabbed a couple of wickets for 26 runs. For the visitors, AB de Villiers was the only redeeming factor, putting up a brave display with the bat by scoring 42 off 78 balls, including five boundaries. While the South African One-Day International (ODI) skipper missed out on his 39th Test fifty by eight runs, only one other batsman (Temba Bavuma, 22 off 55 balls) managed to cross the 20-run mark while a total of four South African batsmen scored in double-digits.
