We have heard about Ian Botham Test, Andrew Flintoff Test, Steve Smith Test, etc. Now, Test cricket will have one on Rohit Sharma, irrespective of the result in Visakhapatnam. India have put themselves in a strong position, conservatively speaking, courtesy twin centuries from opener Rohit, who followed up his 176 in the first innings with 127 on the penultimate day. If India were to allow South Africa to escape with a draw, it would be a huge disappointment, considering how they have dominated the first Test so far. They still have a buffer of 384 runs and 98-odd overs to get the remaining nine South African wickets. Get here ball-by-ball commentary, live updates and live cricket score of fifth day's play of India vs South Africa at ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium, Visakhapatnam. (LIVE SCORECARD | CRICKET NEWS)

So what can happen on the final day of this engrossing match? One outcome, which many believe will be a fair result, is an India win. But still, a draw is a distinct possibility, considering how the visitors had dug deep in their first innings. For that to happen, they will need to come out with spades and shovels, and plant their 'collective feet' deep into the ground. Any fanciful thought about going for a win will only prove detrimental for the visitors, no matter how confident they are. A target of 395 runs on Day 5 of a Test in sub-continent will always be difficult. Don't miss out even a single ball as Virat Kohli & Co push for a vital win.
