OUT! Caught. Mohammed Shami to Kagiso Rabada. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Saha. A slither of an outside edge, and gobbled up behind! A full blooded drive away from the body by Rabada, and it kisses the blade on the way through to the keeper.The South African tail made them wait, but India have secured a big victory to go 1-0 up in the series. A double century for Mayank Agarwal, twin hundreds for Rohit Sharma, a seven wicket haul for Ravi Ashwin, and Mohammad Shami with a super five for in the final innings. They were the standout performances for the hosts, that helped them dominate this Test. The visitors did have good patches, especially in their efforts with the bat. Dean Elgar and Quinton de Kock both making centuries of their own. It wasn't enough for South Africa, though, and they will have to improve in a few areas to close the gap between the teams for the next Test, which starts on Thursday.

OUT! Bowled. Mohammed Shami to Dane Piedt. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, inside edge to. The change back to Shami has worked! Relief for India. Piedt goes for a half-hearted drive, with the weight not fully going into the shot. A waft of the bat, and a thick inside edge back into off stump. That ends a top knock from the number ten. The hosts are one wicket away.

.
Dane Piedt to Ravichandran Ashwin. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, to silly mid on for no runs, fielded by Bavuma. The call finally comes from Kohli to bring his players in after they have amassed 502-7. All down to the two openers who put on 317 and included a century from Rohit Sharma and a double from Mayank Agarwal. It's been hard work for the bowlers but now it is over to the batsmen. They shouldn't be too worried about the wicket although the odd delivery has kept low and turned. Pressure will be on from the start against this Indian bowling attack.

OUT! Caught. Keshav Maharaj to Hanuma Vihari. Stock length ball, middle stump down the track driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long off, by Elgar. Nice bit of pressure built up since the Tea break brings about the wicket. Vihari had obviously been told to increase the tempo but that isn't his natural game. Too close to the ball when he came down which meant he was cramped for room and couldn't free the arms.

APPEAL! Keshav Maharaj to Hanuma Vihari. Stock length ball, outside off stump down the track defending, hit pad to for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Good decision all round. Vihari was quite far down the track when the ball struck his front pad but it was quite straight. Not out on field but a good review as this was hitting the stumps, although because he was over 3 metres down the wicket the original decision stands.

A much more hectic session than we have been used to but that is because India have been trying to push the game on. Mayank Agarwal was outstanding, scoring a maiden double-century which included six maximums and some lovely shots. Not much to talk of from the rest of the batsmen and a session in which South Africa can take some positives. None more so than Senuran Muthusamy who dismissed Virat Kohli for his maiden wicket. Join us after Tea for more action packed cricket.

Vernon Philander to Rohit Sharma. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to silly mid on for no runs, fielded by de Bruyn. Everything went according to plan for India yesterday. They won the toss and then their experiment at the top to play Rohit Sharma worked a treat as he smashed a blistering ton. Along with his opening partner they managed to reach 202 before the rain halted proceedings at the Tea interval. A big score is on the cards with the pitch looking very flat and the Proteas bowlers struggling to find any rhythm. A couple of early breakthroughs is definitely required for the visitors and it has been their seamers who have looked the most dangerous so they will probably start with the ball this morning.

Vernon Philander to Rohit Sharma. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, to mid on for no runs, fielded by Rabada. Early Tea taken as the light fades and rain is on the horizon. India won't mind going off a little early after a brilliant effort to reach 202 for the loss of no wickets. Rohit Sharma brought up his first century as a Test opener while Mayank Agarwal has looked solid for his 84.It has been tough once again for South Africa with nothing working. Spinners haven't been able to contain the runs while the seamers have looked most dangerous, but they can't bowl all day. Time to regroup and come back again after the break.Not much chance of play anytime soon. Heavy rain is pouring down and the whole ground is covered.Unfortunately that is that for the day. No chance for play to continue so we come back tomorrow. India's day by far after posting 202 without losing a wicket with Rohit Sharma scoring a classy century. The wicket has looked very flat so hard work for the Proteas bowlers and their inexperienced spinners. Hopefully better weather tomorrow, join us then.

Start of India Innings. It's the start of the Indian summer season and they welcome South Africa for the first of three Test matches. It will also be the first match for South Africa in the World Test Championship, which India currently lead with 120 points. As usual the pitch looks very dry so the toss is key and it is Virat Kohli who calls correctly. India will be batting first so South Africa will have a lot of pressure to not only keep the runs down but adapt to the spinning conditions in the fourth innings.The home side named their XI yesterday and they have brought in a new opener in the form of Rohit Sharma, it will be the first time he has walked out at the top in Test matches. Wriddiman Saha has also been selected as the keeper so Rishabh Pant misses out. South Africa have a lot of new names from the last time they came here. An inexperience spin attack led by Keshav Maharaj welcomes a debutant in Senuran Muthusamy while Kagiso Rabada is the spearhead for the seamers.Plenty of storylines to keep an eye out over the next five days with play set to start very soon.

OUT! L.B.W. Ravichandran Ashwin to Kagiso Rabada. Off break length ball, off stump on the back foot defending, hit pad to. Very similar to the early shout for LBW. Rabada going back in his crease and missing the ball which doesn't turn. Hit on the back leg but the ball has stayed fractionally lower on this occasion. Crashing into the stumps.That is the end of a brilliant innings from South Africa. To make 431 after being 34-3 on a spinning wicket takes some effort. Centuries from Elgar and de Kock were the stand out knocks and it means they only trail India by 71 runs. Impressive figures from Ashwin to return 7-145 in his comeback Test.What will India's tactics be from here?

APPEAL! Mohammed Shami to Keshav Maharaj. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to wicketkeeper for no runs, by Saha, appeal made for Caught. Plenty of fight shown by South Africa yesterday in alien conditions. The partnership between Dean Elgar and Quinton de Kock was fantastic to watch as runs flowed and India had no answer. A few quick wickets fell late in the day which brought the hosts back into the match but the draw is still the likely result. Anything can happen today though, especially if the pitch deteriorates and more balls start to misbehave.Great start from Shami, nipping one back and beating the bat. Clips the pad on the way through which was the noise the fielders heard.

After starting the day three down they have mounted a fierce fightback with two of their most experienced players scoring tons. Dean Elgar and Quinton de Kock played some amazing shots and made the pitch look incredible easy to bat on. Along with Faf du Plessis they are now just 117 runs behind and have a real chance to get a draw out of the game.Hopefully tomorrow brings more great cricket, join us then.

Ravindra Jadeja to Quinton de Kock. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Jadeja. A second wonderful session for South Africa. Just the one wicket lost again and that happened quite early on. Since then Dean Elgar and Quinton de Kock have played beautifully. Their partnership has now moved onto 114 with Elgar reaching a century and de Kock on 69.A few things for the Indian skipper to think about over the break, with a few of his bowlers looking weary after a long day in the sun. Plenty more cricket left today where anything could happen.
