India vs South Africa, 3rd Test, Day 4 Highlights: SA win Cape Town Test by 7 wickets; clinch series 2-1

  • IND vs SA, 3rd Test, Day 4, 1st session: Keegan Petersen and Rassie van der Dussen took the match away from India as the duo wove 54-run stand between them in the opening session of Day 4 in Cape Town.  

    In 25.2 overs, the hosts collected 70 runs and lost the prized wicket of Petersen at 82. After a couple of DRS decisions not going India's way, the visitors continue to search for the wickets. 

  • 3:34 PM SA 157/3 after 51 overs South Africa inching towards victory. After Petersen's courageous knock, Bavuma and van der Dussen have driven the hosts. India's search for a breakthrough continues. 
  • 3:20 PM SA 155/3 after 46.2 overs WICKET! Petersen departs at 82. Shardul Thakur gets the prized scalp. A bit of extra bounce of a back of the length delivery, Petersen plays with the horizontal bat and the ball hits the stumps. 
  • 3:00 PM 
  • 2:30 PM: SA 120/2 after 37 overs Petersen has hit a half-century and looks comfortable with Van Der Dussen as the duo is absorbing the balls. The visitors seem a little agitated with another DRS decision- this time with RVD.  
  • 2:15 PM: SA 107/2 after 32 overs Bumrah and Shami are weaving a fine web to pressurise the SA batsmen but hasn't fetched them any wicket as of now. The hearts are racing with each connected shot. Some close calls but the wait for a wicket continues.   
  • 2:00 PM: The edge of the seat play gets started at Cape Town. Day 4 at Newlands could be the ultimate day to decide the fate of this Test and also the series. India's pace attack has a massive task on their shoulders- to hold onto the leak of runs and scalp wickets too.   
  • 1:45 PM: Thriller awaits on the plate as South Africa need 111 runs to win while India need eight wickets to lift their maiden Test series in South Africa. 
  • 1:30 PM: We are 30 minutes away from the start of play and this is going to be a fascinating session. India needs wickets in cluster while South Africa would aim to build a solid partnership and win the series.
