    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.

  • 105.4

    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.

    APPEAL! Ravindra Jadeja to Kagiso Rabada. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, by Saha, appeal made for Caught. More of a hopeful review. Nobody seemed convinced there was an edge but Kohli decided to ask the question anyway. Replays show it was nowhere near the bat.

    OUT! Caught. Ravichandran Ashwin to Keshav Maharaj. Off break half volley, off stump on the front foot flick, inside edge to leg slip, by Sharma. It has been a long time coming but eventually India break this partnership. Tossed up much slower from Ashwin, drawing Maharaj forward. Little bit of spin off the wicket and the inside edge is found. A good catch from Rohit around the corner as he would have been unsighted for a while.

    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.
