India vs South Africa Live Score, 3rd Test, Day 3: Ngidi breaks dangerous stand; removes Kohli

  • Jan 13, 2022 05:07 PM IST

    India vs South Africa Live Score: WICKET!

    Virat Kohli is out! Big wicket for South Africa, this. After restraining for so long, Kohli finally gives in and goes for a cover drive. A lapse in concentration there.

    Thick outside edge gets carried to man at first slip and Ngidi gets his first wicket of the innings.

    India 152/5, lead by 165

  • Jan 13, 2022 05:06 PM IST

    India vs South Africa Live Updates: 15 off the over

    A very expensive over from Maharaj and South Africa are losing the momentum here. Need either Rabada or Jansen from Maharaj’s end to keep the flow of runs in check.

    India 151/4, lead by 164

  • Jan 13, 2022 05:01 PM IST

    India vs South Africa Live: TWO SIXES IN A ROW!

    Pant again! The left-hander gets down on one knee and smacks the delivery outside-off for a big six over the mid-wicket for his first six, and then charges down the track to hit the ball over the empty long-off area!

    India 148/4, lead by 161

  • Jan 13, 2022 04:57 PM IST

    India vs South Africa Live: Easy runs

    Almost as if there was no break. Loose lines from Lungi Ngidi and Pant says thank you very much. Easy rotation of strike from the young wicketkeeper-batter to keep the scoreboard ticking.

    India 136/3, lead by 149

  • Jan 13, 2022 04:52 PM IST

    India vs South Africa Live Updates: Surprising start from SA

    South Africa started the second session with Keshav Maharaj and Lungi Ngidi bowled the second over after lunch, which is a bit strange as both bowlers haven’t exactly put pressure on either of the two batters.

    India 134/4, lead by 147

  • Jan 13, 2022 04:44 PM IST

    India vs South Africa Live Updates: Players return for second session

    Kohli and Pant take the crease for the second session of the day. India will be aiming for both to continue with a similar approach, while the Proteas eye a breakthrough.

    India lead by 143 runs.

  • Jan 13, 2022 04:07 PM IST

    India vs South Africa Live: India 130/4 at Lunch

    A fine session for India despite the early setbacks. After Pujara (9) and Rahane (1) were dismissed early, Rishabh Pant (51) helped Virat Kohli (28*) stabilise the Indian innings as the duo takes the visitors to 130/4 at Lunch. India’s lead is currently 143, so there’s work to be done.

  • Jan 13, 2022 04:01 PM IST

    India vs South Arica Live: 50 for Pant!

    A brilliant half-century from the Indian youngster! Pant brings his fifty with a flick towards mid-wicket against Jansen. A controlled innings from Pant and a very important one as well.

    India 129/4, lead by 142

  • Jan 13, 2022 03:59 PM IST

    IND vs SA Live Updates: SIX!

    Rishabh Pant steps out and clears the fielder at long-on! First six of the innings. Maharaj pitches it a little fuller and Pant seizes the opportunity.

  • Jan 13, 2022 03:57 PM IST

    India vs South Africa Live Updates: Penultimate over before lunch

    Maharaj to Pant for what could be the penultimate over before lunch on Day 3.

  • Jan 13, 2022 03:53 PM IST

    IND vs SA Live Updates: Kohli disciplined as ever

    Kohli has been very disciplined and wary but Aakash Chopra says that he might have been missing out on run-scoring opportunities.

    “Not his natural way of playing. Many a times, when you start playing with such an approach, you lose out on many run-scoring opportunities as well,” says Aakash Chopra on-air about Kohli’s batting at the moment.

    India 120/4, lead by 133

  • Jan 13, 2022 03:48 PM IST

    India vs South Africa Live Score: Maharaj continues

    The strategy looks simple here from South Africa. With lunch approaching, the Proteas are aiming to entice Pant into making a mistake. Great restraint shown so far from the youngster, however.

    India 117/4, lead by 130

  • Jan 13, 2022 03:42 PM IST

    India vs South Africa 3rd Test Live: 5 off Maharaj’s over

    A poor delivery to end the over as he bowls down the leg side and Kohli, again, only needs to guide it through. 

    The partnership between both batters is past the 50-run mark.

    India 115/4, lead by 127

  • Jan 13, 2022 03:38 PM IST

    India vs South Africa Live Updates: Keshav Maharaj into the attack

    First sight of spin on Day 3. Keshav Maharaj replaces Marco Jansen.

  • Jan 13, 2022 03:37 PM IST

    India vs South Africa Live Updates: Four!

    A 41st no-ball for Rabada in this series and that eventually results in an easy boundary down the leg side. These runs can hurt South Africa dearly later.

    India 110/4, lead by 123

  • Jan 13, 2022 03:35 PM IST

    IND vs SA Live Updates: STAT ATTACK

    Kagiso Rabada has bowled 40 – Yes – 40, F-O-R-T-Y no balls in this series!

    For the record, he had bowled 62 before the start of this series. 

  • Jan 13, 2022 03:31 PM IST

    India vs South Africa Live Score: Good over for India

    A solid partnership is brewing for India, but the key, as it is often emphasised, is to remain focused. Five runs off Jansen’s over as India’s score moves to 103/4, lead by 116.

  • Jan 13, 2022 03:29 PM IST

    IND vs SA Live Updates: 100 up for India

    Rishabh Pant takes India to three-figure mark with a lofted cut towards deep square leg. 

    India 100/4, lead by 113 runs

  • Jan 13, 2022 03:26 PM IST

    India vs South Africa Live Updates: 1 off Rabada’s over

    Kohli wary of the ball moving away. Excellent judgment of the ball throughout this over from the captain. 1 run off the over as India move to 98/4. Lead by 111

  • Jan 13, 2022 03:22 PM IST

    IND vs SA Live: Rabada returns

    Elgar brings Rabada back into the attack. A wise decision as well. 

  • Jan 13, 2022 03:19 PM IST

    India vs South Africa Live Updates: Shot!

    One would think twice about stepping out and going for a lofted cover drive when they were dismissed in similar fashion roughly a week ago. Not Rishabh Pant, though.

    Pant takes the calculated risk and it reaps the rewards. An excellent cover drive on a fuller delivery wide outside off and it adds to India’s lead.

    India 95/4, lead by 108

  • Jan 13, 2022 03:14 PM IST

    India vs South Africa Live Score: Kohli strong in defence

    A similar approach to his first innings from Kohli. He isn’t bothering with deliveries wide outside the off-stump and the SA bowlers have sensed that, as they bring the line inwards to force Kohli to commit. It has a disciplined outing so far from the Indian captain, though.

    India 91/4, lead by 104 runs

  • Jan 13, 2022 03:10 PM IST

    India vs South Africa Live Updates: Olivier continues after break

    Drinks breaks have been infamous for disturbing the flow of the batting innings, so Kohli and Pant need to remain focussed here.

  • Jan 13, 2022 03:06 PM IST

    India vs South Africa Live: Drinks break! India 90/4, lead by 103 runs

    It was a dream start from Marco Jansen and Kagiso Rabada, as they dismissed Pujara (9) and Rahane (1) respectively. It was then a battle for survival for Kohli and Pant. After seeing through a very dangerous passage of play, both batters have started to find feet. The duo has added 32 runs in 72 deliveries so far.

  • Jan 13, 2022 03:01 PM IST

    IND vs SA Live Updates: Lead goes past 100

    Rishabh Pant flicks another fuller delivery from Lungi Ngidi towards midwicket for a three, and India’s lead goes past the 100-run mark!

    India 89/4, lead by 102

  • Jan 13, 2022 02:59 PM IST

    India vs South Africa Live Updates: Kohli, Pant digging in

    A relative ease in pressure after the bowling changes from both ends, courtesy of a couple of loose deliveries from Ngidi. Both bowlers haven’t been able to replicate the pressure set by Jansen and Rabada so far.

  • Jan 13, 2022 02:53 PM IST

    India vs South Africa Live: First four for Virat

    A rare loose delivery and Kohli gets his first boundary of Day 3. Ngidi bowls down the leg side and keeps it fuller, and all Kohli needed to do was guiding the ball past wicketkeeper for a four.

    India 85/4, lead by 98

  • Jan 13, 2022 02:51 PM IST

    India vs South Africa 3rd Test Live: Nice lengths from Olivier

    He’s forcing Kohli to play those deliveries. Surprised the Indian captain with an odd bouncer as well, but Kohli negotiated the over well.

    Maiden to start from Olivier.

  • Jan 13, 2022 02:47 PM IST

    IND vs SA Live Updates: Olivier replaces Jansen

    Change from both ends as Duanne Olivier replaces Marco Jansen. He bowls to Kohli.

  • Jan 13, 2022 02:46 PM IST

    India vs South Africa Live Score: What a shot!

    Rishabh Pant growing in confidence with every delivery. A fine cover drive to end the over as Ngidi concedes his first runs. 

    India 80/4, lead by 93

  • Jan 13, 2022 02:42 PM IST

    India vs South Africa Live: Ngidi replaces Rabada

    Lungi Ngidi, who is yet to concede a run in his three overs, replaces Kagiso Rabada from one end. He bowls to Pant.

  • Jan 13, 2022 02:41 PM IST

    India vs South Africa Live Updates: Quick runs for Pant

    Rishabh Pant is taking care of the scoring rate in this partnership so far. A couple of twos against Jansen add to India’s score. Fine start from the young wicketkeeper-batter but it’s important for him to capitalize on it.

    India 76/4, lead by 89

  • Jan 13, 2022 02:35 PM IST

    IND vs SA 3rd Test Live: Scintillating contest, this..

    Marco Jansen puts Kohli in some discomfort with the ball rising and twice in an over, Kohli’s defence against the short-pitched delivery lofted towards the empty silly point area. Elgar puts Rassie van der Dussen at the position straightaway. 

    Tough passage of play for the Indian captain!

    India 70/4, lead by 83

  • Jan 13, 2022 02:31 PM IST

    India vs South Africa Live Updates: Kohli’s 500th innings

  • Jan 13, 2022 02:28 PM IST

    IND vs SA Live Updates: ‘Kohli is key’

    The former South Africa batter has his say on the proceedings.

  • Jan 13, 2022 02:26 PM IST

    India vs South Africa Live Updates: First boundary of the day

    Who else but Pant? A bouncer from Rabada over the wicket and Pant pulls it brilliantly through midwicket. First boundary for India on Day 3.

    India 64/4, lead by 77

  • Jan 13, 2022 02:22 PM IST

    India vs South Africa Live Score: Onus on Kohli

    The Indian Test captain finds himself in a similar position as in the first innings. The wickets continue to fall at regular intervals at the other end, and it is upto Kohli to glue this innings now.

    India 60/3, lead by 73

  • Jan 13, 2022 02:19 PM IST

    IND vs SA Live Updates: From bad to worse

    The team management would’ve hoped for important contributions from Pujara and Rahane, but both fall within the first 11 deliveries of Day 3.

    Rishabh Pant has now joined Virat Kohli – India’s last recognized batting pair.

  • Jan 13, 2022 02:12 PM IST

    India vs South Africa Live: OUT!

    Rahane falls on 1. Disappointment continues..

    Another short-pitched delivery and Rahane is all at sea. A faint edge off the gloves and he is caught-behind. Rabada strikes.

  • Jan 13, 2022 02:08 PM IST

    IND vs SA Live Score: End of a successful over

    Pujara will look in hindsight and might probably realise that he could’ve instead taken a body blow there. Anyway, Rahane gets off the mark and we get the scoreboard rolling.

    India 58/2, lead by 71

  • Jan 13, 2022 02:02 PM IST

    IND vs SA Live Updates: WICKET!

    Pujara falls! Marco Jansen strikes. Short-pitched from Jansen and Pujara fails to adjust with the bounce on time. The ball deflects past his defence and he is caught by Keegan Petersen at leg gully.

    India 57/3

  • Jan 13, 2022 02:00 PM IST

    IND vs SA Live Score: Rahane nearing big feat

    There couldn’t be a better day for Rahane to make a statement. Battling with form, the senior batter will be aiming to make it big today and he can reach a big feat if he plays to his best potential today.

    Ajinkya Rahane is only 70 runs away from reaching 5000 runs in Test cricket.

  • Jan 13, 2022 01:36 PM IST

    India vs South Africa Live: Final chance for Rahane?

    The team management put its faith in Ajinkya Rahane in the third and final Test but the senior batter was dismissed cheaply in the first innings. With Hanuma Vihari and Shreyas Iyer waiting for consistent opportunities, will this be the final chance for Rahane?

  • Jan 13, 2022 01:30 PM IST

    India vs South Africa Live Updates: Can SA repeat the 2007 heroics?

    It won’t be easy. One of the biggest changes in the Indian team from 2007 is the quality of the bowling outfit. However, India’s batting struggles continue to remain the team management’s biggest headache, and that is why, India will be hoping for a strong start from captain Kohli and Pujara today.

    IND vs SA Live, 3rd Test: India at Cape Town

    The Rahul Dravid-led Indian team had secured a 41-run lead over the South Africans in the first innings but were bowled out on 169 in the second innings.

    The Proteas, riding on captain Graeme Smith’s half-century and important contributions from middle-order batters Shaun Pollock, Jacques Kallis and Ashwell Prince, chased down the 211-run target with five wickets to spare.

    India vs South Africa Live Updates: India at Cape Town

    India have never won at Cape Town and in 2007, they lost to South Africa while defending a target of 211. Interestingly, the situation in the Test was pretty similar to the one in this game..
