Fri, 04 Oct 2019 03:24:11 pm
EDGED AND FOUR! Chance but in the vacant first slip region. Don't know why there is a wide first slip in place but not the mandatory one. A good short of a length ball outside off by Ishant, Elgar tries to keep it down but it goes off the shoulder of the bat towards the vacant first slip region and into the third man fence.

Welcome back to the third session on Day 3. South Africa have crawled their way back into the contest and India have a lot to ponder about right now with Quinton de Kock and Dean Elgar at the crease. Virat Kohli has his troops in a huddle and is giving them a pep talk. Ravichandran Ashwin will start the proceedings for the final session. Dean Elgar facing the first ball.
Fri, 04 Oct 2019 02:53:00 pm
Nothing much happened in this session, but the odd ball has started to keep low. Kohli will be relieved from inside that he will not have to choose to enforce follow-on or not. But he will want his bowlers to get a breakthrough and then run through the lower middle order. Join us back at 3 pm local (0930 GMT).
A dominant session for the Proteas. Not just a good one. They have scored 139 runs in 37 overs, for the loss of just Faf du Plessis. They have come close to avoiding the follow-on on merit, which is by no means, an easy task in India.

FOUR! Tossed up outside off, de Kock waits on the back foot and guides the down to third man for a boundary. Deft touch really..
Fri, 04 Oct 2019 02:33:38 pm
FOUR! Just over and dear me, Jadeja collides into the barriers! But he is fine. Full and outside off, de Kock leans and lofts it over cover. Jadeja runs back but cannot get there. Then, he cannot control his speed and crashes into the boards.
Fri, 04 Oct 2019 02:33:29 pm
Ravindra Jadeja goes off the field. Seems to be a cut there on his right hand. Umesh Yadav replaces him on the field while Hanuma Vihari replaces him with the ball. 8-1-29-0 so far.
Fri, 04 Oct 2019 02:14:49 pm
FOUR! Up and over. Full and outside off, de Kock stays leg side of the ball and lofts it over cover for a boundary!
Fri, 04 Oct 2019 02:00:10 pm
no run, That stays low. Elgar looks to defend but just about gets his bat down in time. Vihari almost starts to appeal but the umpire signals a no ball.
Fri, 04 Oct 2019 01:59:54 pm
NO BALL. Oversteps does Vihari, a crime for a spinner. Full and outside off, watchfully defended.
Fri, 04 Oct 2019 01:29:30 pm
FOUR! 19 runs off the last 5 ball, de Kock looks to defend but the ball goes off his outside edge and and races to the third
Fri, 04 Oct 2019 01:29:22 pm
SIX! Got it out of the middle, floated on off, de Kock get down on one knee and bangs it over the mid-wicket boundary.
Fri, 04 Oct 2019 01:29:01 pm
FOUR! Classy hit. Full and outside off, de Kock leans and drives this through the covers. The ball races away.
Fri, 04 Oct 2019 01:28:52 pm
FOUR! Not cleanly hit but will still get runs. And four of them. Full and outside off, de Kock looks to go over the top but mistimes it. However, Mayank Agarwal is inside the circle at mid on and the ball clears him. One bounce and into the ropes.
Fri, 04 Oct 2019 12:47:41 pm
OUT! Caught! Finally a wicket falls. It seemed like it would not happen when Faf and Elgar were playing but it has happened.

FOUR! Full ball on middle and leg. Elgar stands tall and flicks it to the mid-wicket boundary. A very confident shot.
Fri, 04 Oct 2019 12:40:10 pm
FOUR! Fine shot. A bit of a top spinner, outside off, Faf gets down and mows a slog sweep, through mid-wicket. There is Ravindra Jadeja at deep mid-wicket, 15-20 yards inside the circle but the ball is finer, to his right.
Fri, 04 Oct 2019 12:40:02 pm
FOUR! This time he connects well. Full and around off, Elgar lofts it over mid on for a boundary!
Fri, 04 Oct 2019 12:39:52 pm
We are back for the second session! Dean Elgar and Faf du Plessis make their way out to the middle. Shami to begin the proceedings for the hosts with Dean Elgar on strike.
Fri, 04 Oct 2019 12:39:45 pm
The hosts, on the other hand, were not up to the mark today especially the spinners as they were put off their lengths by some attacking play from the South African batsmen out in the middle. Ishant Sharma bowled well and was rewarded with the wicket of Bavuma. India are still ahead in the game but would look to get quick wickets after the Lunch break. Join us in a while for all the action.
The visitors although lost the wicket of Bavuma early, du Plessis and Elgar have stitched a magnificent stand which has got them to a score of above 150. Elgar is on course to his 12th Test ton while du Plessis is close to his half-ton. They still have a lot of work to do and need to continue the good work after the break.
First session which has belonged to the Proteas in this Test match. They have played counter-attacking cricket and have added 114 runs in 30 overs with the loss of just one wicket.

FIFTY! 14th Test fifty for Elgar! This has been an excellent innings from Elgar as he has looked at ease. Full delivery on middle, Elgar drives this to long on and takes a single. He knows that his job is only half done and should be looking to continue on to score a big one.
Fri, 04 Oct 2019 10:43:31 am

India managed to take three wickets as well before the end of day's play which has sweetened the things up further for the hosts. The spinners, Ashwin and Jadeja were on target from the word go and picked up three wickets among them. Shami and Ishant bowled few overs with the ball and they were good with their lines and lengths.
Another day which has been dominated by India! They swelled their score to above 500 which is a good score on this track which has started to take turn..
