    240 to get for Saffers to save the home series. I think they will do it, as their backs are against the wall.

    I'd back vihari to bowl a few tight ones as well.
    Not following the match on TV so not sur how Siraj is doing. Isnt he running pretty fast between the wickets?

    Is it confirmed that he will not be bowling full tilt in the 4th innings?

    Around 40 runs to much fr saf to chase. To many extras given by saf which have nullified the lead. They would require 1 batsmen to bat long and score runs to have a chance

    South africa almost once chased 450 here before steyn nd someone else i can remember chickened out for a draw. Wanderers pitch can sometimes get better as the game progresses. Scores from rahane and pujara may be an indicator m not sure though .not watching today

    Target under 200.

    One batsman needs to score and others can chip in. 4th innings here are sometimes the easiest to bat. SA should win it. Go play positively.....

    It's the perfect time for SA batters to maximize their scoring opportunity as the usage of the heavy roller flattened out the surface a bit. They'll find it difficult as the match progress. The same happened during India's innings.

    20 more overs like this and the game is ours. First-time openers have some runs, lol... Yah it is only 30 odd but it helps a lot in these chases.

    Others need to keep playing the same way. One wicket and 50 runs in the bank. 2 more like this and the line will be close. Just staying there won't help because sooner or later you get out.

    240 is suddenly looking insufficient.

    I would blame Pujara and Rahane for their selfish innings. They just wanted to score 50s so they will remain in the team. Vihari and the rest of the lineup had to play catch-up and it was never going to be enough.

    Rahane and Pujara should be kicked out of the team ASAP.

    Rahul is very poor captain.
    Can't even place a fielder at short leg considering bounce. Bowlers can really try some short stuff aiming at waist and above.

    Pressures on , i think SA have decided to treat this like an odi and go at around 4/5 .. india have started charging the umpires with their appeals so they know their in a game now, still think one wicket will open up the floodgates

    8 runs by Keegan here, just make it 80 and the game is ours.

    Sunny G makes a very valid point about positionining of the keeper and the slips.
    I sincerely think our guys slip positioning is about the worst inthe game going around.
    Just imagine in the last few years, the humoungous amount of cathces that didnt carry or were dropped as our guys were too far back.
    The only solution to this is to make bouncy even paced wickets in india in our Ranji FC scene.
    not only will we breed good pacemen and our batsmen get good practice on true bouncy wickets (instead of the pathetic drone like spinners snake pits) we will also breed good slipsmen

    30-40 from a couple of batsmen will do nicely. Just play like ODI. India is one bowler down and if runs come quickly against even 1 bowler then no replacement to change anything.

    The ball is keeping low at times, invariable bounce. India should win this easily.

    Before it becomes too bad, SA to score enough runs to finish it. India is not winning it easily if SA puts some effort.

    True that. You are never in on this pitch. Wickets can fall in a heap.
