    Siraj not being available has swung the match towards SA. If SA plays carefully, they should win this.

    If Siraj is not available then India will have to bring Ashwin on at some point. 3 bowlers can't keep bowling. That might help RSA

    Rahane won the series in Australia as captain. He probably should've been the captain here.

    Once under 100 runs with 8 wickets, SA should win with a high probability. One bowler short and spin is not big here. Even if Siraj bowls, he won't be doing a good job due to injury.

    Vice captain leads the team in absence of captain.
    Rahane was released from VC position due to his form. You never know which match is his last.

    I think India may win this series 2-1. Let's see.

    India is better than South Africa on paper currently.

    SA should win this game from here unless a huge collapse.

    Quality knock from elgar.
    This is looking to be a repeat of the 2018 test.

    Problem with elgar is he takes so many blows and ends up giving his wicket in slipso let see if he can finally play some quality knock now

    Bumrah's poor form is the reason why we couldn't take more wickets today.

    If he can simply hang around and block one end to bring runs down, India is not winning this. Fantastic performance from this SA team so far.

    Good fightback by SA here but india favs here as SA have a long tail and once elgar goes cant see much resistance.

    Not if runs are in the 70-80 range.

    Exactly what he did in first innings. This has been a treacherous pitch u gotta score shile you are out there. SA's tail starts at 6 and India are still very much in this because of this pathetic approach. A lot will also depend tomorrow on how Shami bowls with the older ball

    Stumps it is for the day.

    South Africa need 122 runs. India need 8 wickets.

    SA batted well today. But they have a long tail and India are mentally supreme in Tests. Need these 2 to get to 180 for SA to be in with a shout.
