    South Africa [286 and 130] beat India [209 and 135] by 72 runs in the first Test to take 1-0 series

    So no play yesterday, Steyn out of the match - what can happen today?

    South Africa 286 & 65/2 (20 ov)
    India 209

    South Africa lead by 142 runs with 8 wickets remaining

    If the pitch is spiced up after rain it could be interesting! The match deserves a result (The selection of Dhawan & Rohit should be either justified or crucified) Otherwise they may well go with the same combination for next matches... Steyn's injury has balanced the match like anything (if only India had proper Top 5)

    Kohli, in his 33 matches as captain, has never played the same 11 ever. Not once in the 33 games has he repeated the playing XI. I doubt that the team will remain unchanged in the next test.

    Its interesting to see how the covered pitch behave on Day 4
    But it will ease out as the day progreased.
    India don't want to chase anything beyond 280
    And As Dale Steyn out SA don't wants to take any chance and will not settle for anything below 320
    Its still 60:40
    Advantage South Africa 🌍

    Ball is 20 overs old but it might seam and swing a bit specially for bhuvi in first spell. He will be crucial to pick few wickets.

    Its true. Not only has he not repeated a playing eleven in consecutive matches but he has never repeated his playing XI. All 33 teams that have played under him have been unique.

    That was inconclusive at best. Umpteen times those are given out as fielders have fingers underneath! Also, was given out on field as well as by third umpire.

    Last recognized pair at the crease now... ABD and Philander now. Till we get ABD you never know unless he feels tensed and throws it away target can run past our limits very quickly.

    PS: I know Maharaj can also bat but probably would be difficult in these conditions.

    He doesn't need to run. Just stay there and let ABDV hit out. Of course all depends if ADV is still there by the end of 9 wickets down and SA haven't gotten up to 250 or so.

    Boy, Shami is making up for his first innings effort wholesomely.

    Difficult to execute but the tailenders here needs to throw their bat in search for runs and disturb the bowler's line and length. The tailenders here don't have the technique in these conditions to stay on the wicket for ABDV.

    ABD is still there and Maharaj is no mug with the bat.

    AB should take responsibilities and shield tailenders instead he is keeping himself away like Shafiq!!!

    Kohli gets over-excited. Needs to temper his instincts.

    We have been good with keeping a lid on the scoring this morning.

    It was Shami who forced it on him this time to be fair with Kohli however having said this your point still stands.

    Every run is important on this pitch and Maharaj is not a hopeless bat like Morne.
