The hosts are in a better condition than India after bundling out the visitors for 187. In reply South Africa are 6 for 1.

The live telecast of third Test, Day Two can be watched on Sony Ten 1 and Sony Ten 1 HD. Sony Ten 3 and SONY Ten 3 HD will telecast the Test in Hindi commentary. The live streaming of the same will be available on SonyLiv.com.

India s batting yet again faltered. It was only Virat Kohli, Cheteshwar Pujara and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, that enabled India to 187 runs. Both Kohli and Pujara scored respective fifties. It was the pace trio of Kagiso Rabada, Vernon Philander and Andile Phehlukwayo that shared 7 wickets amongst them.

Kumar gave India the perfect start scaling Aiden Markram just minutes before close of play.
