With the match starting again after the innings break, South Africa came up to bat with Dean Elgar and Aiden Markram opening the innings and Jasprit Bumrah starting the bowling for India.

Bumrah has been receiving full support from the other end.

The day has been called off with South Africa at a score of 17 runs with a loss of 1 wicket. India would try to come up tomorrow with the same intensity as today.
