    Anything short of a 100 by Pujara here should signal the end of his career.

    That was pretty cheap by the South African fielders. What has Rahul done to them?

    Told ya. KL and Ashwin won't perform in second inning. Onus on other batters.

    The best batsman in the series is gone. SA should feel confident here. Rahul is the only one who has looked good in the series so far. It may be very hard for India to get 200 runs lead here with Rahul gone.

    Nah, they have only two front-line Bowler here for this surface. Yeah, I know Thakur took a bagful, but he is still not front line. 175, with Siraj, not bowling, I will feel SA should get it.

    250 is an easy win. no team is chasing 200+ in these conditions in SA. Plus SA batting has already crumbled 3 times in this series. Indias seamers and ashwin won defend 200+ easily.

    LOL As of now based on past few innings...if Rahane and pujara score combined 60.... its probably a unexpected contribution... especially since Rahul is out....
    For that matter 30ish score by by pant, thakur, vihari as well should setup an exciting finish to this test

    Thakur's 7-for in this test is akin to Lance Klusener taking 8-for in his debut test at Eden Gardens in '96.

    Both came out of nowhere.

    SA is in the game here with both openers gone. A couple of walking wickets to follow. India has scored some runs mainly due to openers.

    If they fail then it's 1-1 and we're potentially throwing away our best chance of winning in South Africa.

    So no, not a good time. We need both of them to fire.

    On the plus side, they're pros at making those career saving 55s. It's what has given them such a long rope so far.

    Agree...Take chances...a 30ish score from each of remining 5 batters will setup 150 plus score....a competitive one on this track...then its upto bolwers if they show up or dont

    Did somebody take control of Pujara's mind? He's whacking every other ball

    Not at all.
    I want both of them to score well in this inning.
    Don't want India to miss opportunity of winning series in SA.

    They are under scanner and can fail another day to be thrown out of team.

    C'mon Puajra, find your inner character and tire the hell out of SA bowlers. Don't have high hopes for Rahane though.

    Fantastic series going on. The match is even with Siraj not like to bowl here.

    Instead of tiring, scoring runs will hurt SA more.

    So far runs coming at a good clip. This is the right strategy here, there is just too much time remaining in the test to bat session after session.

    This pitch isn't helpful for blocking. Either keep scoring or get out. Variable bounce means there's no chance of settling down

    True, but if Pujara can hold one end, quick fires from the rest can rake in a decent total.

    That's how Pujara used to bat in his pomp, used to be a busy batsman. He wasn't block, block and block. No wonder he has forgotten to score runs.

    Absolutely, scoring runs is the only way to upset the rhythm of bowlers

    Indian Test Team is so good that even their weakest links (Pujara/Rahane) also come to party at times when needed! Kohli might not have done much with the bat for few years, but his captaincy & aggression has also helped...
