    IND vs SA Live: Prasidh Krishna is into the attack!

    The captaincy from Rohit Sharma has been bad so far. Why would you bring Prasidh Krishna on so early? Jansen has whacked him for two boundaries. Poor bowling and captaincy

    IND vs SA Live: SA going at ease!

    Indian bowlers have bowled just 10 maiden overs, with Siraj yet to not concede a run so far. This has been a point of concern. Too many loose deliveries yesterday

  • 13:36 (IST)

    IND vs SA Live: Onus on Bumrah-Siraj pair!

    IND vs SA Live: Big Day Coming Up!

    An exciting day of cricket is upon us. The first session might decide the outcome of the game. If India get SA out for cheap from here, they are back in the contest. However, a lead of more than 100 might kill this contest for them
