STUMPS DAY 3 - SOUTH AFRICA 118/2, NEEDS 122 RUNS TO WIN

SESSION RECAP: South Africa skipper Dean Elgar led from the front, taking blows and piling on the runs to end the day unbeaten on 46. Shardul Thakur got the first breakthrough for India with the wicket of Markram after a strong 47-run opening stand. Keegan Petersen and Elgar added another crucial 46 runs before Ashwin trapped Petersen in front to revive India's hopes. However, Rassie van der Dussen joined his captain's defiance, denying India another wicket for 12.4 overs that produced just 25 runs. The host heads into the fourth day with an edge over KL Rahul's men with 122 runs needed with eight wickets in hand. Joins us for live action tomorrow. That will be all for today.

SA 118/2 in 40 overs: Good shape from Shami and beats Dussen's poke outside off. Similar delivery again but Dussen leaves this one. Skiddy Shami rushes this one onto Dussen from a length on fourth stump. Short on middle and Dussen pulls it fine for a single. Around the wicket to Elgar and he lets it go at the last moment outside off. Angled in and full on the stump and Elgar defends it with the grit that has kept him at the crease through the session. Stumps!

SA 115/2 in 38 overs: Shami returns to the attack. Another nasty hit for Elgar on the shoulder this time. A vicious bouncer to follow that it up. Too full this time and Elgar tucks it fine with a shuffle across for a single.

SA 114/2 in 37 overs: Thakur comes round the wicket to Elgar and gets one to kick off from a length that gets him on the gloves. Dussen gets an inside edge on one that nips in from outside off and almost chops on. The first ball seems to have taken a toll on Elgar's hand as he gets it iced by the team physio.

SA 111/2 in 36 overs: Ashwin continues. Extra bounce again and hits Elgar high on the bat. Stifled appeal for LBW and turned down. It turned in from off stump but was going over the stumps probably. Elgar drives an over-pitched delivery through extra covers and he will collect three runs. Agarwal seems to have jarred his knee while fielding that one and he is limping off the field.

SA 108/2 in 35 overs: Thakur replaces Bumrah. Play enters the last half hour. Wide outside off first up; Dussen leaves. This one comes in to him and he hops to defend. A couple of singles to end the over. Thakur was examining the patch outside off from the Golf Course End between overs.

SA 100/2 in 32 overs: Ashwin to van der Dussen and Pant behind the stumps. Dussen leaves one on leg stump and that rises to get him on the chest. He pokes one to point for a single and SA brings up 100.

SA 99/2 in 31 overs: Bumrah changes his angle to Elgar. Comes over the wicket now. Keeps it on a tight line outside off before getting one on middle that nips in a bit onto his legs. A bouncer and Pant does well to get a hand to it. Nasty one! Bumrah knocks one under Elgar's neck and he is rattled with that one and sinks to his knees for a brief while to gather himself again. The physio is out for the routine concussion check. A bouncer again and that's the over.

SA 99/2 in 30 overs: Ashwin continues. Two singles to start off with. Van der Dussen has a hard time negotiating Ashwin and Pant's chirping behind the stumps doesn't make his life any easier.

SA 97/2 in 29 overs: Bumrah into the attack. Round the wicket to Elgar. Attacks the off stump from the angle first up. A couple of balls in the channel before a bouncer that slides down leg. Fuller on off stump and Elgar pushes it at mid off for three. van der Dussen pulls to fine leg to get off the mark.

Siraj to Elgar from over the wicket. Angles across a couple of balls to Elgar outside off and he leaves.

DRINKS - DAY 3 SESSION 3 - SOUTH AFRICA 88/1, NEEDS 152 RUNS TO WIN

SA 88/1 in 24 overs: Ashwin veers on the pads and flicked by Elgar for a single. Sharp turn for Ashwin! It spun away from outside leg and Pant missed it too; one bye. Elgar solid in his defence and confident in his leaves. Drinks!

SA 86/1 in 23 overs: Siraj from the other end. Good length outside off and Petersen leaves. FOUR! Short and Petersen pulls it away behind square to the boundary. This one is sliding down leg and Petersen misses the flick. Almost gone! That one nipped back from a length and almost took the top of off stump as Petersen left.

SA 71/1 in 18 overs: Thakur comes round the wicket now to Elgar. Beats him first ball with one that straightens from the angle on off stump. FOUR! Petersen plays it very late and dabs it to the third man boundary. Nasty one that spits up from a length and Petersen yanks his wrists back in time to avoid gloving it.

SA 66/1 in 17 overs: FOUR! Full into the pads and Elgar punches it through mid wicket and easy pickings there for him. Close to off stump but too full, smothering any movement off the pitch, and Elgar leaves. Just short of full and Elgar taps on off and steals a quick single. A couple of dots to end the over.

SA 61/1 in 16 overs: Thakur will continue. Thakur strays down leg to Elgar, who collects a single with a tuck to square leg. Thakur correct his line to Petersen, asking questions in the channel.

SA 60/1 in 14 overs: Thakur gets his line wrong with two balls down leg from over the wicket to Elgar. He flicks the second one for a single at fine leg. Beaten and Elgar it is again! Full on the off stump and shapes away to beat Elgar's driving outside edge.

SA 58/1 in 13 overs: FOUR! Loose ball full on leg and Petersen flicks it to the mid wicket area for a boundary. Shorter on leg again and clipped off the backfoot for one more.

Intense from Bumrah! Extra bounce from a length and stings Petersen close to the chest. FOUR! Good reply from Petersen with a front-footed drive through covers.

SA 47/1 in 10 overs: FOUR! Length on off from Thakur and Markram slashes it to the square boundary. Loud appeal for LBW but Erasmus is not impressed. KL doesn't go up. It nipped in a bit from a fullish length and took Markram's back thigh. Appeal again for LBW next ball and Erasmus shakes his head again. Thakur looked keen but KL doesn't oblige. That was angling down leg. Peach! Comes into Markram from wide outside off and beats his expansive drive. OUT! This time Thakur gets his man. Struck Markram in front and Erasmus lift his finger this time and Markram is walking. Nips back again with a scrambled seam and gets Markram flush on the back pad.

SA 38/0 in 8 overs: Back for the final session of play. Thakur with the ball to Elgar. It's pitched wide outside leg and Elgar clips it to fine leg for a couple. This is better; on a length on leg stump and Elgar hops to tap it back. Tickled down leg, closer to Elgar, and he misses the flick. Shaped away from a length on leg stump and Elgar gets a thick edge that goes to slip on the bounce. Errs in line again and flicked to fine for a couple more. Low full-toss and Elgar guides it to gully for a dot.

TEA DAY 3 - SOUTH AFRICA 34/0 IN 7 OVERS

SESSION RECAP: India set South Africa a tricky target of 240. The South African openers, Markram and Elgar, have been positive in their response. Markram has looked in fabulous touch, racing to 24 off 28 balls with five fours. Elgar has also struck one four. They have shaved off 34 runs from the target. Back with the final session shortly.

SA 34/0 in 7 overs: Bumrah to Elgar. Two dots later, a single to him. Markram keeps out a ball on middle and off that keeps low. Seems to have done some damage to his bat in the process. A change of bats for Markram. Bumrah induces an outside edge which falls short of the slip fielders - what's worse, it runs away for four. India leaking runs in the session. Five off the over. That's tea.

SA 29/0 in 6 overs: Markram growing in confidence as he plays a magnificent cover drive off Shami for four. Just a boundary from that over.

SA 25/0 in 5 overs: Bumrah. SA openers continue to chip away. Elgar pushes at a length ball outside off and gets it away from the gully fielder for four. Two dots later, Elgar collects a single. A single and a brace to end the over. Markram to take strike next over.

SA 16/0 in 3 overs: Bumrah to Markram. After sending down a few deliveries wide outside off, Bumrah tries to bring a few back into him. Four dots later, he spears a length ball on leg stump and Markram works it away through mid-wicket for his third boundary.

SA 12/0 in 2 overs: Shami to share the new ball. Elgar takes strike. Three slips. Elgar's away with a single off the second ball. Shami has got Markram out thrice in this series but Shami errs in line this time and Markram flicks it past mid-wicket for four. A three to end the over.

South Africa have used a light roller. Elgar and Markram to start the chase.

A challenging target of 240 for the Proteas. Valuable contributions from Thakur and Vihari after useful fifties from Pujara and Rahane. Rabada, Jansen and Ngidi took three wickets each. Over to the bowlers. Be back shortly.

GONE! Ngidi cleans up Siraj first ball. India all out for 266. Vihari remains unbeaten on 40. India set South Africa a target of 240.

IND 250/9 in 57 overs: Ngidi to Bumrah, he holes out to Jansen! Nine down with a lead of 218. What does Vihari do now? Siraj comes to the crease. The batters crossed, so Vihari will be on strike. He plays the ramp shot over slips for four. Single off the last ball and Vihari will retain strike. Good work by Maharaj at the non-striker's end - saved a certain four overthrows.

IND 245/8 in 56 overs: Jansen to Vihari, six dots. Had a chance to take a single midway through the over but turned it down.

IND 245/8 in 55 overs: Rabada to Vihari, single. Next two balls, Rabada oversteps. A dot later, Bumrah swings again and finally connects, collects six over backward square.

Thakur on the charge. Change of ball - apparently it has been hit out of shape! He is out next ball! He goes for a 24-ball 28. 15 runs and a wicket from that over.

IND 210/6 in 49 overs: More freebies from South Africa as Rabada concedes 4 byes. This isn't helping their cause at all. India's lead is now 183. Thakur and Vihari collected a single each in that over.

- SECOND SESSION -

LUNCH DAY 3 - INDIA 188/6, LEADS BY 161 RUNS

SESSION RECAP: A session that ebbed and flowed, with 103 runs coming from it at the cost of four wickets. Pujara and Rahane took Indian fans on a trip down memory lane with career-extending fifties before Rabada removed the duo in a span of four overs. Wickets tumbled from there onwards, with Pant and Ashwin falling while trying to pad up India's lead. The match is poised for a thrilling finish, with India leading by 161 runs and South Africa showing no signs of backing down in its backyard.

IND 188/6 in 44 overs: Ngidi from the other end. Full and straight and Ashwin pushes it back to Ngidi for a dot ball. FOUR! Ambitious slash outside off and bounces off slip's fingertips to the third man boundary. OUT! Unlucky dismissal. A loose ball going down leg and Ashwin gets some wood on it as he is late on the flick. Timely breakthrough for South Africa at the stroke of Lunch. Thakur is the new man in. Good one to start with as Ngidi zips it away from a fullish length and onto Thakur's upper thigh. FOUR! Full on the pads and flicked away for mid on and to the boundary. Thakur taps it back to Ngidi. That will be Lunch and India extends its lead to 161 runs.

Pulled away this time and a single at backward square leg. Jansen beats Vihari on fifth stump line with one that comes in with the angle.

IND 175/5 in 42 overs: Olivier will continue. Swivels and pulled away by Ashwin for a single at fine leg. Vihari tucks one for a single in front of square. Crucial runs coming here as India will look for a cushion of at least 200 runs before putting the host in to bat. Short again and Ashwin pulls again for a single at fine leg. Beaten in the channel! Vihari forward presses to defend put is beaten for the late away movement.

IND 172/5 in 41 overs: Ashwin gets a leading edge over point as he looks to nudge one on the leg and he is off the mark with a couple. Driven on the up on a fuller length on off and the mid off fielder gets to it to keep it to three runs. Rabada keeps it in the channel to Vihari and four dots to end the over.

IND 167/5 in 40 overs: Olivier bowls a maiden to Vihari and sends down a few words at him after he fails to connect a ramp shot off a short one. The battle is heating up here and SA has India under the pump.

IND 167/5 in 39 overs: OUT! Pant perishes trying to step out heave one on a tight off stump line and edges it to the keeper. The Rabada-Pant contest was shaping up to be a fiery one but it fizzled out in just three balls. Pant was beaten off the first ball in the channel and then was served a nasty bouncer that got his grille. Ashwin comes in and plays out three dots.

Greeted with a bouncer that goes too high and that is FIVE-WIDES! Vihari gets off the mark with one that zips into him and he flicks it fine for one. LBW appeal and given and Pujara reviews. India loses a review as replay confirms that was hitting leg stump. Pujara goes. It tailed in from a fullish length and skidded onto Pujara's front knee roll.

IND 156/3 in 36 overs: Pujara survives. LBW appeal turned down and Elgar went up. Replays showed Pujara got his pad outside the line of off stump and he survives this in-swinger from Olivier's that came from a fuller-length. Pujara keeps strike with a slight shuffle and flick to fine leg for a single.

IND 155/3 in 35 overs: FOUR! Full from Rabada and Rahane pushes it through covers. Jansen puts in a dive to parry it back but Bavuma steps on the cushion while picking it up. OUT!

Eight runs off that Olivier over and India is off to a rollicking start.

IND 140/2 in 31 overs: Pujara gets one with a flick to fine leg. Rabada gets one to climb on Rahane and take his glove. A horrible miscommunication between slip and gully has Markram leaping too late for the looping catch as it falls short. Rabada can't believe it! He will need some treatment after that blow to his hand. Rabada steams in with a bit more bite after that missed chance. Beats Pujara's outside edge in the channel with one that moves away. Wraps up the over with a fierce bouncer that Pujara ducks under with ease.

IND 137/2 in 30 overs: Olivier into the attack. Pujara tucks one away to short fine leg for a single and he moves to 49. Tailed in from a length on fifth stump and Rahane leaves. A ripper!

Pujara whips one off the pad for a single and 50 for Pujara off 62 balls.

IND 126/2 in 28 overs: A single for Pujara at cover as Ngidi tails one into him and he pushes it with the outside half of the bat. A couple for Rahane as he drives a good length at mid on and a misfield there as some awry bounce off the practice pitch deceives the fielder. A full one driven by Rahane to extra cover for a single and he retains strike.

IND 122/2 in 27 overs: Rabada replaces Jansen. No-ball first ball. FOUR! Rahane finds a thick edge on a full delivery outside off and that runs away to the third man boundary. Runs coming thick and fast for the Indians. A couple of back of length balls to end the over. The last one doesn't bounce as much as Rahane anticipated and stings him close to his chest as he misses the pull.

IND 117/2 in 26 overs: FOUR! Rahane punches a back of a length ball from Ngidi a bit uppishly and past gully. FOUR! Another boundary to end the over. This time Pujara gets an edge past slips and gully.

IND 108/2 in 25 overs: SIX! Rahane upper cuts a back of length delivery from Jansen over point and all the way. It was angled across from him and leaned back slightly and cut it sharply. A pull the next ball for a single at deep square leg.

IND 101/2 in 24 overs: LBW appeal against Pujara and turned down! A desperate shout as Pujara missed one that nipped in from a full length. Rapped him on top of the knee roll and was probably going down leg. Pujara guides a couple of length balls to point for dots. A couple of well-timed drives off full deliveries but straight to the fielder on both occasions. Maiden over as Pujara taps one on the off with a forward press.

IND 101/2 in 23 overs : Jansen continues. Back of length on off and Rahane goes on his toes to defend it. Strays down leg, Rahane misses the flick and a desperate appeal. A couple for Rahane at fine leg. FOUR! The gentlest of nudges straight back to the left of Jansen and the timing on it takes it to the boundary. 100 up for India.

IND 95/2 in 22 overs: FOUR! Pujara flicks his first ball of the day to the fine leg boundary. A loosener sliding down leg from Ngidi. Correct his line but it is too full outside off and Pujara is happy to leave. FOUR! Over-pitched again on off and Pujara digs it out to the long on boundary. Left alone again outside off. This one is better; on the stump with slight inwards movement and Pujara defends with the inside half of the bat.

IND 87/2 in 21 overs: Jansen to Rahane from over the wicket. Full on off and Rahane defends with his foot forward. Good tight line on off stump by Jansen and Rahane leaves. Back of length and pulled away to mid wicket for a couple. Nipped back in a bit and Rahane defends close to his body.

Live Day 3 action will begin soon from the Wanderers. Pujara and Rahane make their way to middle and the South Africans are in a huddle and keen on limiting India's lead.
