As It Happened: India Vs South Africa, 1st Test, Day 4 - CATEGORY Daily News: TITLE

THAT'S STUMPS ON DAY 2! Despite the loss of Parthiv Patel early, this session surely belonged to India as they managed to thwart the South African pacers. They have reached 49/1 and have a lead of 42 runs. KL Rahul (16*) and Murali Vijay (13*) are the unbeaten batsmen.


OVERS 14: So Murali Vijay and KL Rahul are fighting. Lungi Ngidi has been introduced into the attack now. Score 40/1, lead by 33 runs

OVERS 9: Testing times for Murali Vijay and KL Rahul. The ball is doing its tricks. Score 29/1, lead by 22 runs

OVERS 4.6: OUT! Vernon Philander has struck. Parthiv Patel's breezy run comes to an end after Aiden Markram takes a brilliant catch at third slip. He scored 16 off 15 balls. Score 17/1, lead by 10 runs

OVERS 3.1: With two fours, Parthiv Patel puts India in the lead. Score 8/0, lead by 1 run

PLAYERS ARE BACK IN A JIFFY. Murali Vijay and Parthiv Patel to open the innings, Vernon Philander has the new ball


OVERS 65.5: Maiden fifer for Jasprit Bumrah in Test cricket as dismisses Lungi Ngidi for a duck. South Africa take a slim 7-run lead after being all out for 194.

OVERS 65.3: OUT! Full toss from Jasprit Bumrah that hits Andilo Phehlukwayo on the knee roll. Indians appeal and umpire raises his finger. But Phehlukwayo has reviewed it. Confirmation: no inside edge and that will crash on the stumps. He scored 9. Score 194/9, lead by 7 runs

SOUTH AFRICA HAVE THE LEAD NOW. With two fours in three balls, Morne Morkel gets his team ahead of India in the 64th over.

OVERS 62.2: OUT! Mohammed Shami gets his first wicket in Vernon Philander who holes out to Jasprit Bumrah at fin leg after a crucial innings worth 35. Score 175/8

OVERS 59.5: OUT! India have broken the threatening stand with the prized scalp of Hashim Amla. Jasprit Bumrah bowls it full and Amla flicks but finds Hardik Pandya at deep midwicket to be caught on 61. Score 169/7, trail by 18 runs

OVERS 59: Hashim Amla and Vernon Philander continue to thwart India pacers. And they have built a handy partnership. So far, they have added 41 runs. Score 166/6

OVERS 55.6: Short and width on offer, Vernon Philander puts that away for a boundary to take the score to 152/6

The third and final session of the day gets underway. Whose session is this going out to be?

OVERS 54: THAT'S TEA! South Africa 143/6 (Amla 54*) trail India (Bhuvneshwar 3/34) by 44 runs at tea on Day 2

South Africa's first innings deficit is below 50 runs now with four wickets remaining

OVERS 48.6: FIFTY for Hashim Amla off 98 deliveries. He reaches the milestone with a single off Jasprit Bumrah. Quite an effort from Hash on a difficult surface. SCORE 130/6

OVERS 47.2: OUT! Jasprit Bumrah ends Quinton de Kock's nervy stay after having him out caught behind on 8. Score 125/6

OVERS 46.5: Quinton de Kock looks to play this to fine leg, Indians appeal as the ball rolls towards the fence. After a brief chat, Kohli opts for DRS. And the ball would have missed the leg stump. India lose their review. Score 124/5

OVERS 41.4: OUT! Jasprit Bumrah gets his first wicket and it is the South Africa captain Faf du Plessis who has been clean bowled on 8. Score 107/5

OVERS 39.2: Faf du Plessis brings up the 100 runs for South Africa with a four to third man. Score 101/4

OVERS 36.4: OUT! Full and swinging in as Bhuvneshwar Kumar gets the cherry crash through AB de Villiers' defenses onto the stumps. What a sight for a fast bowler. He walks back after scoring 5. Score 92/4

OVERS 31.4: A huge, huge appeal for LBW by Ishant Sharma after he pings AB de Villiers in front. The umpire turned down the appeal and Indians didn't review. DRS showed three reds! That would have been out if India had opted for DRS!

Play has resumed after the lunch break

At lunch on Day 2, South Africa 81/3 (Amla 32*, Rabada 30; Bhuvneshwar 2/17) trail India (187) by 106 runs

Rabada out: Finally, Kagiso Rabada's vigil comes to an end. 30 off 84 deliveries, SA 80/3, trail India by 107 runs

REVIEW TAKEN: India take review on a Hashim Amla appeal off Ishant Sharma, but the on-field call is not overturned as the hawkeye showed the ball marginally clipping the stumps. India retain their review, Amla bats on. SA 62/2

GONE! Outstanding bowling this from Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Dean Elgar gone - South Africa 16/2
