  Commentary

  • Right then, it has been a tough series for the Indians. Not too many positives to draw from this, but they will have to pick themselves up and play for pride in the third and final Test that starts in a week's time at the Wanderer's in Johannesburg. And as always we will be bringing you the game live. Till then, see ya!

  • Faf du Plessis: It took a lot of hard work. We were on top for most times. After Day 1, we were very disappointed. In the last 45 mins, we gave India a sniff but we made sure we showed character thereon. We needed to get 400 but for me, the vital time was the second innings. We kept pushing and we knew anything over 250 would be challenging. Special performance by Ngidi. He's a special guy and a lovely human being. Morne's catch was definitely better than AB's. He is going to tell us a lot about that catch over the next few days.

  • Virat Kohli: We thought the wicket was a rather flat. Quite surprising. I told the guys the wicket looks different to what it looked before toss We thought we had our best chance to put some runs on the board. The way South Africans lost the wickets in the first innings we should have capitalized. We could have taken the lead That is something we have ourselves down. The bowlers have done the job for us. The batsman have let the team down. We have lost the series, winning the game would have mattered more to me. Personal milestones don't matter to me at all. As a team, you want to play collectively. The South Africans deserved to win.

  • Lungi Ngidi (Player of the Match) - At the moment it hasn't really sunk in, but this was special. It has been a quick turnaround for me. I was in good form in the franchise and it was my effort to try and do well for the country at my homegorund. There was a little bit of movement. I kept the basics right. It was not definitely a nomal SuperSport wicket. We just pretty much put them under pressure and tried to keep them down.

  • It was always going to be tough for the Indians on Day 5, especially after losing the three wickets late last night including that of Virat Kohli, their skipper. It was a disastrous start for the Indians on the final day with Cheteshwra Pujara run-out for the second time in the match. Parthiv Patel soon followed suit thanks largely to a breathtaking catch by Morne Morkel. Rohit Sharma played well for 47 but with wickets falling at regular intervals it was always going to be tough for the visitors.

  • What a stupendous performance by the South African boys. The surface was not even close to what the hosts would have expected but the pacers kept chugging on and on and in the end, it was a rather easy victory on the final day by 135 runs. The bowling hero, well you cannot get a better debut than what Lungi Ngidi had. He ends with figures of 6 for 39 in 12.2 overs and with that South Africa wrap up the series 2-0.

    L Ngidi to J Bumrah, OUT, ALL OVER! Lungi has six, and what a debut it has been for the 21-year-old. Length ball outside off and Bumrah can only push it as far as Philander at mid-off.

  Full commentary

  • Innings Break

  • Could've been a better result for India today, but they'll probably be confident about this. There were three dropped chances, Rabada was put down by Kohli and Pandya off successive balls. Faf du Plessis was dropped by Parthiv not long after. The South African captain scored a fine 63 to add some substance to the score. He received support from Maharaj and Rabada. We'll have about one over before lunch.

  • The pitch hasn't played to expectations. It's had variable bounce, but mostly has kept lower than one would expect from a typical South African wicket. It's also assisted some amount of turn. The on-air pundits at the ground, Shaun Pollock and Graeme Smith, reckon it will offer more to bowlers as cracks open up.

  • Ashwin was the pick of the bowlers on the first day, taking a haul of three. Things weren't this bright for him the last time he played in South Africa.

  • From a wanderer to a super sport the Ashwin saga

    From a reality check during the 2013 14 tour to a star in the current series the ace off spinner has come a long way

  • Good day! Welcome to Day 2 of the coverage of the second Test between South Africa and India from Centurion. It's been an exciting affair. Not just the first day of this Test, but even the whole of the previous Test. But as it stands now South Africa are 1-0 up, and are poised delicately at 269 for 6 in this match.

  • What a riveting final session. India pulled it back brilliantly but not without South Africa's help. The home side were in a great position at 246 for 3, but then Hardik Pandya brilliantly ran out Hashim Amla. Quinton de Kock offered a tame poke to be caught at first slip off his very first ball to become Ashwin's third victim, and then Philander set off for an inexplicable run which brought his wicket, all in a frenzied succession. India will be very pleased and will come out fully pumped up tomorrow, that's for sure. Faf will have his task cut out, having gone to close at 24 not out. He will need a big hand from the lower-order too. We'll sign off now. See you tomorrow.

  • That's the end of a fine first session. South Africa have faced some testing times to come out unscathed. The seamers kept things tight, although Mohammed Shami was flat and got appropriately hit for a few runs. Bumrah provided a chance in his second spell with a short ball, which Elgar hooked towards deep square leg, but the M Vijay charged at it and then saw the ball sail over him. Markram was iffy but only briefly, he grew in confidence and played an array of pleasing drives to get past a well-deserved fifty. Elgar's looked everything but comfortable, yet he's survived. Do join us for the second session.

  • Dean Elgar and Aiden Markram come to the middle, Jasprit Bumrah to start the bowling attack.

  • We're ready to get the second Test underway. Markram and Elgar to take strike, while Bumrah has the cherry.

  • In the meantime, have a look at the preview.

  • Bowlers get ringing endorsement but India mull batting permutations

    Seam movement is not expected to be much of a factor at SuperSport Park but Kohli feels they have the personnel to bowl South Africa out twice

  • A few interesting calls there! Handing Lungi Ngidi the debut cap seems like a good move, at least going by his first-class average of 20.45! India will surely raise eyebrows, not many would have expected these many changes. Saha was apparently forced out with a niggle, and Parthiv comes in. He will look to grab his opportunity. Rahul replacing Dhawan is hardly surprising. But Bhuvneshwar making way for Ishant is a very interesting move to say the least.

  • Virat: We would have batted first too. A lot of the grass is off. We were looking forward to having a same pitch as Cape Town, kept us in the game all the time. Day 1, first session it'll be tough for batsmen. Toss is always tricky. Rahul replaces Dhawan, Saha is out with a hand niggle and Parthiv comes in and Ishant returns for Bhuvneshwar for extra bounce.

  • Faf du Plessis: We're going to have a bat again, just the history of this ground. It develops a crack later, spinners come into play. Two really quality teams, we're expecting a big fight from India. We're going to improve in this Test. Lungi Ngidi is to make his debut!

  • South Africa Won the Toss & Elected to Bat

  • Hello and welcome to the live coverage of the second Test between South Africa and India at Centurion. The first Test was an example of just how gripping long-form cricket can be when two top-ranked sides fight it out. India were always in the game until a collapse, inspired by Vernon Philander on a seaming track, got the better of the visitors by 72 runs. Will India show the stomach for fightback or will South Africa dominate? Lot's of questions to be answered in this match. Stay tuned.

  • Hello and welcome to Day 3 of the second Test between South Africa and India. I am Aaron Abhishek and I will take you through the day's proceedings along with my scorer, Shashwat Rao.

  • Exciting day's play on a seemingly flattish wicket. That's what happens when the top two ranked sides play Test cricket; riveting action. First South Africa were bowled out for 335, with Faf du Plessis playing the starring role with a battling 63, receiving support from Maharaj and Rabada. India then started well or so it seemed before Morkel caught Rahul off his own bowling. Pujara was then run out, but once Kohli came in he and Vijay made South Africa worry for a bit, before a rash shot saw Vijay fall to Maharaj. Rohit and Parthiv fell next but Pandya has seen the day out with Kohli. Kohli will target the three-figure mark and more on the third day. South Africa will look to get wickets quickly. Lungi Ngidi has looked good and will hope to reap more reward to make his debut memorable. Do join us again tomorrow. Good night!

  • Hello again, everyone! Day Four of what seems to be a promising Test between South Africa and India at Centurion. It was a good day of Test cricket yesterday and if not for the rain and bad light that hampered play, we would have had some more intriguing action. So the update is that 98 overs will be played today and tomorrow.


    Day 3 was all about a classy Kohli innings followed by an enterprising fifty from AB de Villiers to haul South Africa out of trouble.


    For a quick recap, here's Saurabh Somani's report of Day 3:

  • Kohli de Villiers entertain but South Africa nose ahead

    Hosts reach 90 for 2 a lead of 118 on truncated third day after India captain stands tall with brilliant 153

  • Guess that's it for today, ladies and gentlemen. Play has been called off. The South Africa scoreboard reads 90 for 2, despite a spirited start from Jasprit Bumrah, all thanks to the masterclass from one man- AB de Villiers, who is unbeaten on 50. Giving him company is Dean Elgar, who seems to have found his bearings after a shaky start. The highlight of the day however was Virat Kohli who's 153 had fluency and class written all over it. Sad end for the day, but then nature has the final say. That's all from us here. Do join us tomorrow as we take you through Day Four of the second Test.

  Full commentary

  • Right then, it has been a tough series for the Indians. Not too many positives to draw from this, but they will have to pick themselves up and play for pride in the third and final Test that starts in a week's time at the Wanderer's in Johannesburg. And as always we will be bringing you the game live. Till then, see ya!

  • Faf du Plessis: It took a lot of hard work. We were on top for most times. After Day 1, we were very disappointed. In the last 45 mins, we gave India a sniff but we made sure we showed character thereon. We needed to get 400 but for me, the vital time was the second innings. We kept pushing and we knew anything over 250 would be challenging. Special performance by Ngidi. He's a special guy and a lovely human being. Morne's catch was definitely better than AB's. He is going to tell us a lot about that catch over the next few days.

  • Virat Kohli: We thought the wicket was a rather flat. Quite surprising. I told the guys the wicket looks different to what it looked before toss We thought we had our best chance to put some runs on the board. The way South Africans lost the wickets in the first innings we should have capitalized. We could have taken the lead That is something we have ourselves down. The bowlers have done the job for us. The batsman have let the team down. We have lost the series, winning the game would have mattered more to me. Personal milestones don't matter to me at all. As a team, you want to play collectively. The South Africans deserved to win.

  • Lungi Ngidi (Player of the Match) - At the moment it hasn't really sunk in, but this was special. It has been a quick turnaround for me. I was in good form in the franchise and it was my effort to try and do well for the country at my homegorund. There was a little bit of movement. I kept the basics right. It was not definitely a nomal SuperSport wicket. We just pretty much put them under pressure and tried to keep them down.

  • It was always going to be tough for the Indians on Day 5, especially after losing the three wickets late last night including that of Virat Kohli, their skipper. It was a disastrous start for the Indians on the final day with Cheteshwra Pujara run-out for the second time in the match. Parthiv Patel soon followed suit thanks largely to a breathtaking catch by Morne Morkel. Rohit Sharma played well for 47 but with wickets falling at regular intervals it was always going to be tough for the visitors.

  • What a stupendous performance by the South African boys. The surface was not even close to what the hosts would have expected but the pacers kept chugging on and on and in the end, it was a rather easy victory on the final day by 135 runs. The bowling hero, well you cannot get a better debut than what Lungi Ngidi had. He ends with figures of 6 for 39 in 12.2 overs and with that South Africa wrap up the series 2-0.

Why Pujara went for that third run, only he will be able to tell best. But, he did and was caught well short of the crease. Even the dive could not save Pujara. Big, big blow first up.

  • Right, then we are all set. The two overnight batsman, Cheteshwar Pujara, and Parthiv Patel are put in the middle. Kagiso Rabada to start proceedings for South Africa.

  • Meanwhile, at the Under19 Cricket World Cup, there has been an incident where Jiveshan Pillay, the South African opener, was given out obstructing the field. Here's Karthik Lakhsmanan's account of what happened.

  • Pillay dismissed obstructing the field

    Windies win contentious shout against South African batsman in key encounter

  • The pitch has been the talk of the town all Test. Saurabh Somani had a closer look at all the hue and cry over the SuperSport surface. Read it, it is an absolute corker.

  • Shami Elgar carry pitch debate forward

    Didnt expect the ball to stay so low concedes Indian pacer South African opener describes it as disappointing

  • How will the pitch on day 5 play? That is the one question which will be on top of most peoples mind. It had been up and down on the fourth day as M Vijay experienced. Don't think it will be any different if not worse on the final day.

  • Hello and Welcome to the fifth and final day of the second Test of what has been one heck of an enthralling series between two top-notch sides.Will South Africa steamroll the Indians and finish off the series here? Can the Indian show some steel without the assistance of their skipper? Either way, the first session will probably decide which way the match is turning.

  • Also, that's it from us for today. My colleague Ashish Pant will take you through the final day. Adieu folks!

  • And that's Day Four in the books. Has been a tremendous day of Test cricket. AB's masterclass, Faf's stonewalling and Shami's spell to start with, but the evening definitely belonged to young Lungi Ngidi. Got KL Rahul and the prize wicket of Virat Kohli and those two scalps has definitely put South Africa in a commanding position. Despite a painful welcome to the crease, Parthiv Patel has managed to hang in and giving company is an assured-looking Pujara as India call it a day with the scoreboard reading 35 for 3. That leaves India to play out 98 overs tomorrow. They still have a bit of firepower to come and with way the pitch is behaving, all three results are still possible.
