    … DAY 5, SESSION 2 …

    Patience was the name of the game for India. The first half-hour of play did not go their way but they did not lose their cool. They stuck to their plans and got help from a Day-5 pitch. The wicket of Elgar was the opening they needed and then the pacers were relentless. Bumrah, Siraj and Shami all took a wicket each as India are a few wicket-taking deliveries away from a victory here.

  • 3:35 PM IST

    The day started with Bavuma and Elgar looking very comfortable for the first 30 minutes. Boundaries were coming along nicely and Elgar was even dropped once by Shami. It looked like as the ball got older, South Africa were getting more and more comfortable in the middle. But, in situations like these, a wicket can turn things around quite quickly and the wicket of Elgar did just that. Once their skipper fell, the middle order of South Africa was under a lot of pressure. De Kock was very jittery during his stay in the middle and lost his wicket soon. What could have been a good session for South Africa after what was a solid start to the day, ended up being a tough session for them taking the hosts closer to a defeat.

  • 3:34 PM IST

    A brilliant session for India and the writing is pretty much on the wall now. The visitors are just 3 wickets away from a historic win here.

  • 3:31 PM IST

    65.5 Ravichandran Ashwin to Temba Bavuma, no run, Tossed up again, around middle and leg. Defended towards the on side. There was a bit of drift and turn for Ashwin there.
