Team India is on the verge of taking a 1-0 lead in the three-match series at Centurion’s SuperSport Park by winning the first Test against South Africa.
After the Indian batsmen failed to score massively in the second innings, the bowlers stepped in and brought the Indian closer to victory.
In the second innings, Rishabh Pant was the highest scorer (34), with the second best score being extras (27). It really told the story of Indian batting. Struggling for runs, Indian captain Virat Kohli could only score 18 runs in 32 balls.
The visitors set a target of 305 for the Proteas and the hosts are currently struggling at 94/4, with skipper Dean Elgar batting on 52.
India need six wickets to win and should finish the job if they get a chance to bowl all overs on the last day of the Test.
Weather will play a big rule here. Thunderstorms are expected in Centurion at around 2 p.m. local time. The day is expected to start with bright sunshine, however, clouds may roll in. According to Accuweather, there is a possibility of thunderstorms in the afternoon.
The Proteas will be hoping for some rain as it can help them draw this Test. If it does, it will become a jailbreak for them.
