Stumps | Day 2:

South Africa 39/3, still trail by 463 runs. Elgar: 27(63) | Ashwin: 2/9 | Jadeja: 1/21

Perfect day for India. Enough runs on the board, opposition in disarray, bewildered batsmen. South Africa need to follow the lead of Elgar who has batted really well but will have to display great skill against quality spin.

South Africa's night watchman falls!

Dane Piedt goes without troubling the scorers, Jadeja has his first. Piedt went forward and played for the turn but the ball went straight through the gap and disturbed the middle stump. Both the Indian spinners are in fine rhythm and have the Proteas struggling at 34/3

Elgar goes downtown

SIXXXX! wasn't to the pitch of this one either, but he kept his head in shape rather than losing it and just chipped it through the line. The timing's so good that not only does it get him out of danger, it goes all the way. SA- 27/1 after 11 ovs

Bowled! Ashwin strikes

Gone! Ashwin goes right through the defence of Markram. Off spin which is well flighted and dips right at the correct juncture. Markram prods forward and leaves just enough space between bat and pad to get bowled. Ashwin is delighted. Markram goes for 5(21). SA- 14/1

Smiles all around

Ravindra Jadeja hits another boundary from Keshav Maharaj's over. The ball hits the advertisement ropes and gets stuck between them. Three players searching for the ball outside the boundary but noone has a clue where it is. Aiden Markram comes to the rescue as he picks up the ball after seeing it on the giant screen. IND - 478/6 in 129 overs

HUGE SIX!

Ravindra Jadeja has hit the ball a long way. That's out of the park. Jadeja has got the skipper's message loud and clear.

Signal from Kohli

Virat Kohli signals from the dressing room but he is not declaring the innings. He signalled 9 more overs to bat and wants Ravindra Jadeja to shift gears. Ashwin Ravichandran is padded up too. The aim is to score as many runs as possible and then put South African batsmen under pressure. Meanwhile, Wriddhiman Saha gets off the mark. Two boundaries from Saha's bat in Philander's over. IND - 466/6 in 128 overs
