South Africa go to lunch at 94 for 3 on Day Five of the fourth Test against India at Delhi. India managed to pick up a wicket that off Hashim Amla for 25 off 244 deliveries. Amla looked to play a forward defence but the ball straightened right at the last minute and crashed into his wickets. Ravindra jadeja was the lone wicket-taker for India. Faf du Plessis joined AB de Villiers at the crease after Amla’s dismissal. He finally got off the mark off the 53rd delivery he faced. India will be happy to have picked up the wicket but they require seven more to win the match. Looking at South Africa’s approach, it looks as though India will find it tough to get the remaining wickets. Full Cricket Scorecard: India vs South Africa 2015 4th Test at Delhi
