IND vs SA, 3rd Test, Day 3 (SCORECARD)

IND vs SA Test LIVE, 3rd Test, Day 3: Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara made it to stumps on day two of third Test against South Africa at Newlands Cricket Ground here on Wednesday. At stumps, India are 57/2 in 17 overs, leading by 70 runs. In a see-saw day, India took a narrow 13-run lead as the pace attack shot out South Africa for 210. Jasprit Bumrah was the star with the ball, taking 5/42, his seventh five-wicket haul in Test cricket on a pitch which was aiding fast bowlers. Mohammed Shami (2/39), Umesh Yadav (2/64) and Shardul Thakur (1/37) were among the other wicket-takers for the tourists’. For South Africa, Keegan Petersen top-scored with a career-best 72.

22 wickets fell on the second day as Bumrah starred for India with five wickets. The hosts were bundled out for 210 runs which gave India a crucial 13-run lead. Unfortunately, India lost both their openers early and that shifted the balance of the game before Pujara and Kohli took charge of proceedings and ensured the side did not have any more casualties before stumps. India lead by 70 runs. The ball is fairly new and the first hour tomorrow would be critical in deciding the fate of the series.
