TOTAL63.1 Ov (RR: 3.19)202
Fall of wickets: 1-36 (Mayank Agarwal, 14.1 ov), 2-49 (Cheteshwar Pujara, 23.3 ov), 3-49 (Ajinkya Rahane, 23.4 ov), 4-91 (Hanuma Vihari, 38.4 ov), 5-116 (KL Rahul, 45.5 ov), 6-156 (Rishabh Pant, 53.4 ov), 7-157 (Shardul Thakur, 54.6 ov), 8-185 (Mohammed Shami, 59.3 ov), 9-187 (Ravichandran Ashwin, 60.5 ov), 10-202 (Mohammed Siraj, 63.1 ov)
38.4 to GH Vihari, caught at short leg. It's extra bounce again but a fabulous catch by RvD too. Back of a length thudding into him, Vihari is in a bit of a tangle trying to fend it down, the ball flies off the inside edge towards short leg. Rassie has to leap to his left and he's managed to time his jump perfectly, grabs the ball at full stretch high above his head.. 91/4
59.3 to Mohammed Shami, thumped straight back. Good reflex catch by Rabada too. Full on the stumps, Shami gets a meaty hit on the drive, but hits it straight back, and Rabada calmly takes it beside him, to his left.. 185/8
63.1 to Mohammed Siraj, and that's that. Length ball going down leg, and Siraj looks to tickle it fine, can't get enough bat on it, and it only results in a catch to the keeper.. 202/10
23.3 to CA Pujara, extra bounce does the trick. Short of length outside off, Pujara was looking to defend but the ball hit the shoulder of the bat and ballooned towards point where Bavuma accepted the dolly. 49/2
23.4 to AM Rahane, Two in two. That's the 50th Test wicket for Olivier. Short of length outside off, Rahane just hangs his bat outside off - a nothing kind of a shot. The ball hits the outside edge and goes to the right of gully where Petersen tumbles across to take the catch. 49/3
54.6 to SN Thakur, cuts it straight to gully. Back of a length outside off, and Shardul gets a meaty hit on that, but didn't try to keep it down and it's straight to the fielder. Almost catching practice.. 157/7
14.1 to MA Agarwal, a wicket straightaway after drinks. Fuller length outside off, angling across Agarwal who goes for the drive but it's not that full either. An outside edge and Verreynne collects it in front of his face. South Africa have the breakthrough. 36/1
45.5 to KL Rahul, A big wicket. Short, outside off, Rahul looks to get under it as he attempts the pull. The ball hits the top edge and flies towards fine leg. Rabada had to take a few steps forward, completes the catch very low. That was the shorter side of the ground but Jansen two catching men in the deep. 116/5
53.4 to RR Pant, inside edge is gobbled up by the keeper. Jansen has done him with the line. He's been moving it away from Pant most of the time, this one is back of a length and nibbling at off-stump, Pant pushes forward to defend it, and the ball continues with the angle, takes the inside edge and settles into the keeper's gloves.. 156/6
60.5 to R Ashwin, and Jansen has his fourth. Ashwin backing away expecting the short ball, to try and slash it over point. He was right in what he expected but the ball climbs more steeply than is comfortable and he can only get a top edge that balloons up for the easiest of catches to point. End of an extremely valuable hand by Ashwin, who has done much to give him and the other bowlers something to bowl at.. 187/9

TOTAL79.4 Ov (RR: 2.87)229
Fall of wickets: 1-14 (Aiden Markram, 3.5 ov), 2-88 (Dean Elgar, 38.5 ov), 3-101 (Keegan Petersen, 42.6 ov), 4-102 (Rassie van der Dussen, 44.4 ov), 5-162 (Kyle Verreynne, 64.6 ov), 6-177 (Temba Bavuma, 66.3 ov), 7-179 (Kagiso Rabada, 67.3 ov), 8-217 (Keshav Maharaj, 75.2 ov), 9-228 (Marco Jansen, 79.1 ov), 10-229 (Lungi Ngidi, 79.4 ov)
75.2 to KA Maharaj, bowled 'im. Full and straight, Maharaj looked to drive at it but it straightened just a little bit to beat the outside edge and hit the off stump. 217/8
3.5 to AK Markram, Shami brings that one in to rap Markram on the pads. Up goes the finger. A length ball around off and coming in, Markram was looking to play it on the leg side, gets beaten on the inside edge and the ball would have gone on to crash into middle and leg. 14/1
67.3 to K Rabada, and he's holed out to mid-on. Soft dismissal. Shami had kept the first two ball wide outside off, this one is coming into him and on off, he's looking to drive again, ball lobs up off the inside half for the easiest of catches. 179/7
38.5 to D Elgar, and he's feathered a touch through. Shardul Thakur continues to just make things happen on a cricket field. Good ball, back of a length and moving away but the line is such that Elgar's been playing at those. Pokes at this one, perhaps a lapse in concentration after a marathon stay? - but only manages a thin edge that Pant gleefully gobbles up.. 88/2
42.6 to KD Petersen, caught at srecond slip. Shardul continues to be the breakthrough man for India. Peterson might have been better off leaving it alone. Fuller outside off and moving away, he aims an ambitious drive at it, gets a thick edge that is grabbed by the slip fielder. Agarwal at second slip moved to his left and caught it nicely.. 101/3
44.4 to HE van der Dussen, seam movement gets RvD and Shardul has a third. This one cut him in half. Back of a length outside off and jags in sharply, RvD was going at it with only hands, inside edges onto pad and the ball keeps going, Pant does really well to tumble to his left and latch onto it. What a game-turning spell by Shardul Thakur. Hang on, there's some doubt on the replay whether that ball bounced before landing in Pant's gloves. These are the kinds of catches where the catcher is very likely unaware that it could have bounced just before. RvD walked off immediately though, and 2D replays of 3D events can sometimes be misleading.. 102/4
64.6 to K Verreynne, he's trapped him in front, but Kyle reviews. That one came back in sharply from a length outside off, and seemed to have struck him right in front of the stumps. But could be that the movement takes it down leg? Huge gap between bat and ball as he was looking to push it defensively, which shows the amount of movement Thakur got. and the ball is crashing into leg-stump. Verreynne has to go and Shardul has a fourth.. 162/5
66.3 to T Bavuma, he's caught down the legside. Shardul has five! Bavuma was moving across, Shardul bowled this back of a length and moving into him. Bavuma was well inside the line to try and glance it fine, gets a thin edge and Rishabh Pant does excellently to dive to his left and pluck the ball out. First five-for in Test cricket for Shardul Thakur. What a day he's having.. 177/6
79.1 to M Jansen, Sixth wicket for Thakur. Fuller in the line of the stumps, Jansen goes for the big hit but gets a top edge and it goes up in the air towards the extra cover region. Ashwin comes under it and manages to pouch it after a bit of wobble. 228/9
79.4 to L Ngidi, Shardul finishes with 7 for 61. A length ball outside off, Ngidi throws his bat at it, gets a thick outside edge that goes to the right of Pant, who tumbles across to hold the catch. 229/10

34.6 to AM Rahane, beauty! And Rahane walks back. Short of a length around off, pitching and moving away. Rahane had to play at it, and as he does, he gets an faint outside edge to the keeper. The umpire took a while to get his finger up but there was no doubt in the minds of South Africa's fielders. 155/3
36.6 to CA Pujara, Rabada has snared both set batters. Pujara wants to review it but that looked close. Fuller length outside off and nipping back in sharply to beat Pujara's forward defence. This is not looking good. Hit him right in from of off and middle, and would have gone on to crash into the leg stump. India effectively 136 for 4. 163/4
38.3 to RR Pant, what was that?! Perhaps the last ball rattled him. Pant danced down the ground, created some room looked to smash this short of a length delivery over extra cover. All he managed was an outside edge to Verreynne. India in a spot of bother here. 167/5
11.4 to MA Agarwal, he's completely mis-read that and is lbw. Offered no shot to a ball outside off that cut back in sharply and hit him on the knee roll. No shot offered so even if the impact was outside off it wouldn't matter. That ball was headed into the stumps, and Mayank decides not to review after chatting with Pujara. Crucial strike, he was looking fluent. But Olivier completely foxed him with that one, he probably thought that was going with the line, instead it cut back in sharply. 44/2
43.3 to R Ashwin, caught down the leg side! No Sydney 2.0 here. It was a length ball down the leg side, Ashwin went for the flick only to guide it into the hands of Verreynne. Was too far away from him to make a proper connection. 184/6
56.2 to JJ Bumrah, goes down swinging does Bumrah. Hard length into him, denying room to free arms as Bumrah goes to his familiar method of clearing front leg and looking to hoick it, but gets a top edge that swirls to point.. 245/9
60.1 to Mohammed Siraj, and Ngidi gets him on the first ball. A length ball on the off stump, Siraj looks to defend but is beaten on the outside edge and the ball crashes into the off stump. 266/10
6.5 to KL Rahul, and he does exactly that, and gets Rahul caught at second slip. Rahul standing there because the umpires are checking for a clean catch. Soft signal is out. Looks clean. Markram was going to his left and forward, closes both hands around the ball before it touches the ground. And it is indeed out. Massive, massive strike. What a fine bowler Jansen is. He shortened his length on that and brought it closer to off-stump, bringing it in, Rahul has to play at it, but he gets an outside edge that is snapped up. Set up by the ones going across him and sticking to the channel.. 24/1
49.6 to SN Thakur, the Shardul show is over. Short ball into him, latches onto it very nicely, but he's hit it too well perhaps, and straight to the fielder at deep square leg. He hardly has to move to gobble it up.. 225/7
51.5 to Mohammed Shami, length ball going down leg, and he's got another strangled down legside! Shami was looking to tickle it fine, gets a thin touch on it and it goes into the keeper's gloves.. 228/8

Fall of wickets: 1-47 (Aiden Markram, 9.6 ov), 2-93 (Keegan Petersen, 27.2 ov), 3-175 (Rassie van der Dussen, 53.6 ov)
53.6 to HE van der Dussen, finally Shami gets some reward. Length outside off and moving away. Rassie was half-forward as he looks to defend it, gets an outside edge and Pujara pouches at first slip. 175/3
9.6 to AK Markram, Shardul gets his man this time after three close calls. He's really owning this Test. And that was plumb. Markram won't even review. Kept a bit low too possible, back of a length coming in a touch from off, hit low on the back pad. Markram very late in bringing bat down, well beaten on the inside edge. 47/1
27.2 to KD Petersen, given lbw. But South Africa will have to review it. No, they don't. It looked like it spun sharply. Was a length ball, just outside off and spinning big. Petersen looks to flick it away but misses and is struck in front of middle and leg. The umpire took his time before raising the finger. Was it spinning down? Or maybe just clipping? Probably the latter. Scratch that, replays show that was hitting leg. 93/2
