LIVE 2nd Test, Jo’burg: The battle is on and the South Africans are holding onto their nerves. Indian pacers are putting the ball in the right areas. One has to admit, they have been unlucky.

PITCH REPORT: There are some good areas to exploit as a bowler, it’s a mix of dead grass as well as live gras, there are some barren spots as well. The bounce will be variable at times and there’ll be movement off the surface. It rained overnight and the pitch could get a bit quicker. This is a tough batting wicket.

LIVE 2nd Test, Jo burg: Mohammad Siraj was seen in the nets today. So we can expect him to play a part.

LIVE 2nd Test, Jo’burg: Mohammad Siraj bowled an excellent spell on Day 1 before he pulled his hamstring and left the field. It would be interesting to see if he is fit enough to bowl as India need him desperately as the pitch is favouring the pacers and he can be very lethal alongside Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami and Shardul Thakur.

LIVE 2nd Test, Jo’burg: In 2018, India were bowled out for 187 in the first innings but responded strongly by dismissing the Proteas for 194. That too, from a strong position of 80/2. Monday may not have been India’s best but Tuesday will be a new day.

LIVE 2nd Test, Jo’burg: India need wickets and need them at a quick pace. The pitch is also expected to get faster and the Indian bowlers will be raring to go. All this is only possible if the weather is favourable for play. As of now there’s no possibility of rain.

LIVE 2nd Test, Jo’burg: In the final session of the day, Rishabh Pant dropped Keegan Petersen. We have to wait and watch whether it will prove costly or not for Team India.

Live 2nd Test, Jo burg: It’s too early to predict any out of this game. Let’s see what the two teams have in store for us today.

Live 2nd Test, Jo’burg: Siraj had hobbled off the field when he was trying to bowl the last ball of his fourth over and couldn t complete his action. His last ball was then bowled by Shardul Thakur. The medical staff are assessing him overnight. I think it is very immediate, so initially what they do is they just put the ice and just see for the next hour or two. I am hoping that with the history Siraj has, he will definitely come out and give his best, updated Ashwin.
