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.
