India were bundled out for 187 runs in the 1st inning after they won the toss and elected to bat first against South Africa. For India, only Kohli, Pujara and Bhunveshwar were the highest scoring batsmen. India won the toss and elected to bat first against South Africa in the 3rd and the final test match of the 3 match series. India made two changes in their playing eleven, Ajinkya Rahane replaces Rohit Sharma while Bhuvneshwar Kumar replaces Ashwin.
South Africa has already clinched the series 2-0 and is eyeing for a whitewash win, on the other hand, Virat Kohli led side would like to save themselves from a humiliating series defeat.
Jasprit Bumrah was the star with his maiden five-wicket haul that has allowed India to restrict South Africa’s lead to just seven runs. Murali Vijay and Cheteshwar Pujara have looked in good touch but India will be aiming to set South Africa a target in excess of 200 on a pitch that is assisting the fast bowlers prodigiously. India’s batting, which has been put under severe pressure in this series, will be determined to put up one solid effort for the last time in this Test series.
Kl Rahul Got out Early:
It was The Third over of day 3 and Kl Rahul doesn’t last long on the second day, getting a thick edge to du Plessis in the slips while tentatively pushing a length delivery that moves away outside off. Philander gets the early breakthrough on the third day. KL Rahul! He won’t be pleased with himself when he sees the replay. Credit to Philander for teasing the batsman with an outswinger but Rahul should have left that alone. He fell into the trap, chased the ball and edged it behind to the slip cordon. South Africa needed the wicket.
