With the pitch encouraging the pacers, all the wickets till now in the match is taken by quick pacers. South Africa holds still with more than 170 runs to win. Captain Elgar stands and the Proteas hope for a good win as the hosts are looking strong.
Shami’s wicket boost the confidence of team India, with Bumrah and other pacers looking forward to bowl the hosts out and snatch the victory from their hands.
Keegan and Elgar look firm with classic shots, some of them crediting a boundary. Virat looks to cheer his lads in every ball and of course the stump mic kick starts the fan’s emotional whenever Pant comments. Healthy sledging can be heard, along with Pant’s laughable comments in Hindi.
Both the team look forward to win, and this last session which has more then 25 overs of play left is exciting to watch.
