India vs South Africa 2nd Test, Day 4 Highlights: After enforcing the follow on, Virat Kohli’s Team India bundled out South Africa for 189 in the third session of the fifth day of the second Test in Pune on Sunday, to win the match by an innings and 137 runs. Losing wickets from the second ball of the innings itself, South Africa crumbled under pressure as Umesh Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja both bagged three wickets each. After being down to 71/4 in the morning session itself, losing important wickets of Dean Elgar, Aiden Markram and Faf du Plessis, South Africa lost their way on the fourth day to chase the massive lead of 326 runs.

Markram departed after being trapped by Ishant Sharma in the first over itself. Two brilliant catches by Wriddhiman Saha sent Theunis de Bruyn and Faf du Plessis back to the pavilion soon after, before Dean Elgar was dismissed by Ravichandran Ashwin for his second wicket of the day. In the second session, Ravindra Jadeja got rid of Quinton de Kock and Temba Bavuma. Mohammed Shami came back to the attack and sent Senuran Muthusamy packing. Although Vernon Philander and Keshav Maharaj tried to emulate their first innings’ resilient partnership, it was broken down by Umesh Yadav after tea break, before Ravindra Jadeja dismissed Keshav Maharaj in the 68th over to clinch the Test series against South Africa.

Tea break

The partnership for the eighth wicket between Vernon Philander and Keshav Maharaj is now 43 runs from 97 deliveries. Some resistance from the two lower-order batsmen. South Africa are still trailing by 154 runs. Irrespective of the partnership, these two seem to be delaying the inevitable. The question is, will they be able to bat out the third session and take the game to Day 5? SA - 172/7
