Bavuma fails to pick Shahbaz Nadeem
Bavuma had come out to the middle when the visitors were in a spot of bother at 16/3. He was then involved in a 91-run stand for the fourth wicket along with Zubayr Hamza and just when it looked like the Proteas had gained momentum, they once again lost it as both the set batsmen were dismissed in quick intervals. However, it was Bavuma's wicket that stood out. It happened in the 29th over bowled by Shahbaz Nadeem. On the second delivery, Nadeem landed the ball around the middle and leg which tempted Bavuma to come down the track to defend as the ball turned away and he missed it completely while Saha made no mistake behind the stumps in whipping off the bails. The video of Shahbaz Nadeem picking up his maiden Test wicket off a beautiful delivery was posted by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on their official Twitter handle.

India rattle South Africa
India declared their innings at 497/9 and reduced South Africa to 9/2 before bad light stopped play. They then lost the wicket of skipper Faf du Plessis in the morning session before Bavuma and Hamza rebuilt the innings for the Proteas to an extent. Post their dismissals, the visitors' resistance lost its steam as they lost their next five wickets for just 23 runs.
