Earlier, KL Rahul and Ajinkya Rahane resumed Day 3 play at 272/3. Unfortunately, the duo got out cheaply which triggered a collapse. Lungi Ngidi completed a fifer and Kagiso Rabada returned with key wickets after a dismal Day 1 show. India tried to reach a decent total but could manage just 55 runs for 7 wickets in the first session.

Day 3 at Centurion – For India, the plan seems pretty simple. Virat Kohli and Co will now be aiming to bat just once & post a mammoth total of around 450-500 and try to bowl out Proteas twice in the remaining days.

Is Result Possible? But the question remains on the fact that will full day lost – Can a decisive result be achieved? Clearer weather is expected on days four as well, but there is more rain forecast for day five. This means there is likely to be further time lost and a diminished chance of a decisive result.

Conditions so far have not been conducive to flurries of wickets, with the pitch playing flat apart from the occasional instance of inconsistent bounce.

Day 3 at Centurion – The hosts South Africa will be looking to make the most of the overcast conditions and moisture from the surface and restrict India under 350 as Lungi Ngidi reckoned after Day 1’s play.

The Proteas were pretty ordinary with their line and length on Day 1, except for Lungi Ngidi who picked up all three wickets. The likes of Kagiso Rabada, Wiaan Mulder, need to step in for a fightback.
