OUT! L.B.W. Ravindra Jadeja to Keshav Maharaj. Stock ball back of a length, off stump on the back foot working, hit pad to. When it came, the end came quickly. Three wickets in eight balls for India to wrap up the series. Maharaj back on his stumps and missing his work across the line. India take a well-deserved 2-0 lead that wraps up the series. They have been utterly dominant in this match and since racking up 601-5 in the first innings it has just been a matter of time before they wrapped up victory. Day 5 goes unused with the wickets shared around today amongst this excellent attack after they chose to enforce the follow on.

OUT! Caught. Senuran Muthusamy to Ravindra Jadeja. Stock length ball, to leg down the track driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long off, by de Bruyn. There is going to be no century for Jadeja today. India had been batting on while he swung the bat but the first time he mis-timed a shot he picked out the fielder.With that wicket India have decided to declare. Virat Kohli will walk off unbeaten on 254, his highest Test score, while India as a team have racked up 601-5. It has been brilliant batting and they have taken full advantage of a flat wicket and some very weary bowlers.All eyes now on the Proteas openers and whether or not they can see off this tricky period before stumps.

They also have Virat Kohli at the crease and last night he was looking in scintillating form before the light called an end to the proceedings.South Africa have one thing working for them, a relatively new ball and fresh legs in their bowlers after a good night's sleep. Early wickets definitely key or else they could end up watching the runs pile up.

FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Ajinkya Rahane. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, top edge past fine leg for 4 runs. More anguish for the bowler. Beating Rahane for pace on the pull but not having the ball go to hand.And with that the umpire's have decided the light is not good enough to carry on. Stumps are called.Good day for India after winning the toss. 273-3 at close with a fabulous century from Mayank Agarwal once again. Handy half-centuries from Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli has built up the lead and took advantage of some loose bowling.Been tough for the bowlers again, after they weren't able to capitalise on the early movement. Kagiso Rabada has been a shining light but he's had no back-up from the other end.Could be more of the same tomorrow if South Africa don't use this new ball. See you then.

OUT! Caught. Kagiso Rabada to Mayank Agarwal. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to first slip, by du Plessis. A third wicket for Rabada and Graeme Smith in the commentary box has been calling for him since tea. Putting it on a good length and Agarwal got a little stuck between coming forward or staying back. Got the edge and Faf made hard work of the catch but managed to hang on.

Kagiso Rabada to Mayank Agarwal. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to extra cover for no runs, fielded by Bavuma. Time for tea. India's session overall, except the last 10 minutes in which South Africa rallied behind Kagiso Rabada. The late wicket of Pujara will give them something to smile about but other than that it was a tough two hours in the field. They were unable to pick up wickets or stem the flow of the runs with the partnership between Pujara and Agarwal reaching 138.A break might be what everyone needs to get some energy back before a long final session.

Runs were flowing very easily but Rabada has found the edge of Pujara's bat. Old ball in hand so little movement if any off the wicket, just played down the wrong line.

Start of India Innings. Good morning and welcome to the 2nd Test between India and South Africa. The first match was a hard battle between bat and ball which ended in tame fashion for the Proteas on the final day. They have another bite at the cherry though and they might want to make some changes to their XI after their spinners were dominated. For India it was nothing new, their spinners did most of the damage but Mohammad Shami was brilliant as he tore through the batting line-up in the fourth innings.A change in pitch today at Pune, a tinge of green which might bring the pacers into the match on the first day. Virat Kohli in his 50th Test as captain wins the toss and he chooses to bat first. One change for India with Umesh Yadav replacing Hanuma Vihari. South Africa have also made just one change as Dane Piedt misses out and Anrich Nortje makes his Test debut.

OUT! L.B.W. Ravichandran Ashwin to Kagiso Rabada. Off break length ball, middle stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to. Given out on the stroke of stumps. Angling in and not turning as much as Rabada played for. Thuds into the front pad and up goes the finger. Three reds on the replay and South Africa are all out for 275.It has been a final session in which the Proteas can be proud of themselves. Keshav Maharaj and Vernon Philander put on a record breaking 109 run partnership and it means India have a dilemma on their hands whether or not to enforce the follow-on. It is a huge lead still but they might want to rest their bowlers for a few hours before having another go at South Africa. The pitch also hasn't broken up as much so a few more players running on it might do the trick.Join us at the same time tomorrow to see what they decide to do.

OUT! Caught. Ravichandran Ashwin to Faf du Plessis. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to first slip, by Rahane. Dream delivery from Ashwin. The same spot of the first ball which had turned into the pads but he got this to slide on and take the outside edge. Nothing Faf could do as he played for the spin.
