Du Plessis was 25 not out while Maharaj was batting on 10.India fought back in the last session in which 37 overs were bowled, 87 runs scored and 4 wickets were taken. It all started with Ishant Sharma knocking over AB de Villiers after the tea break.ALSO WATCHHashim Amla and du Plessis did look like steadying the ship but a piece of brilliance in the field by Hardik Pandya saw the former being run out for 82. Also, two quick wickets after that gave India the edge.South Africa’s Aiden Markram fell six runs short of what would have been a sparkling century.Markram edged a delivery from spinner Ravichandran Ashwin to wicketkeeper Parthiv Patel on 94 coming from 150 balls as he was denied a third test century in his seventh innings.The home side can clinch the three-match series with a win, having taken the first test in Cape Town with a 72-run victory.advertisementAmla has had two pieces of good fortune already, dropped on 30 by Hardik Pandya off Ashwin and then again on the same total when Patel made a hash of a nick down the leg-side from the bowling of seamer Ishant Sharma.Ashwin also claimed the wicket of opener Dean Elgar (31) as the left-hander stroked a delivery into the body of silly point Murali Vijay, who reacted brilliantly to grasp the ball as it rebounded off him.South Africa had resumed after lunch on 78 without loss and 23-year-old Markram seemed set for his century as he took the attack to the Indian bowlers.After Test tons against Bangladesh and Zimbabwe since his September debut, Markram now also has two scores in the 90s having made a fine start to his five-day career as the answer to South Africa’s long-running issues with the opening position.South Africa, who won the toss and elected to bat, handed a debut to tall seamer Lungi Ngidi who is regarded as a hugely promising talent and will expect to get steep bounce at a brisk pace on his home pitch in provincial cricket.India made three changes from the first test as opener Lokesh Rahul, wicketkeeper-batsman Parthiv Patel and seamer Ishant Sharma replaced Shikhar Dhawan, Wriddhiman Saha and Bhuvneshwar Kumar respectively.(With inputs from Reuters)last_img read more
