India lost two quick wickets in the morning session, as Morne Morkel castled Rohit Shama and beat Murali Vijay with a sharp bouncer that Indian opener failed to skip and caught behind the wicket.

India starting the second innings on the third day morning with 213 run lead scored 51. Opener Shikhar Dhawan looked gritty as he is batting on 20* at lunch with Chesteeshwar Pujara.

However, India have recovered well from their early morning setback. India  were once 57 for 4. Shikhar Dhawan’s failure continues while Chesteshwar Pujara was bowled by leg-spinner Imran Tahir.  

Ajinkya Rahane after registering a brilliant hundred in the first innings played a mature innings and gave good company to captain Virat Kohli, who ended the third day the  a positive note. Rahane is unbeaten on 52 while Kohli is batting on 83. India got 403 runs lead. 

Earlier India cleaned up South Africa inside two seasons for 121. Ravindra Jadeja has taken the second fifer of this series. Ravichandran Ashwin and Umesh Yadav has taken two each while Ishant Sharma has taken one wicket.


A magnificent hundred from Ajinkya Rahane shepherded India’s innings. His partnership with Ravichandran Ashwin played a crucial role in India’s first innings total 334. 

But, on the third day Feroz Shah Kotla Test, left-handed opener Shikhar Dhawan, who turned 30 today, was seen getting angry at KL Rahul. Dhawan pointed to the dressing room to bring a spray as he was fleeing pain in his left hand. But, Rahul was late, which made Dhawan angry. Dhawan threw some *abusive* words towards Rahul, who looked confused.
