Two Ducks in The Tail
Morne Morkel puts up a fight, smashing three boundaries before going to a brilliant catch by Stuart Binny near the boundary line. Kyle Abbott is the final wicket - run out.
South Africa’s innings now wrapped up for 214. AB De Villiers top scored for the Proteas with his 85-run knock while Ravindra Jadeja (4/50) and R Ashwin (4/70) shared eight wickets between them.
South Africa 1st innings: 214 all out in 59 overs.(AB de Villiers 85, Dean Elgar 38; R Jadeja 4/50, R Ashwin 4/70).
Second wicket in three deliveries. Easy peasy. Ball meets Rabada’s bat, takes an edge and lands into Pujara’s waiting palms.
South Africa lose 8th wicket. Jadeja has his fourth of the innings.
Saha’s Diving Catch Sends Back de Villiers
AB walks down the pitch and the ball touches his pad and flies towards Saha. Rather, meets him midway. The new keeper dives forward and only just latches on with his left glove. Umpires go up for a final verdict but it’s an out.
AB walks back for a 115-ball 85. South Africa: 177/7 as tea is called.
Virat and co make Jadeja lead the players off the field.
