    Ravichandran Ashwin to Vernon Philander. out. OUT! South Africa have lost their eighth wicket. BOWLED! 5-fer for Ashwin! Normal services have resumed. India’s number 1 off spinner has come back after a long absence in style. This is the 27th time in 67 Tests that Ashwin has taken a 5-fer. Beautifully looped outside off, fuller in length, Philander is enticed and goes for the drive. But the ball spins a long way, takes the inside edge and hits the top of middle and leg sticks. India closing in on batting again but they might want South Africa to bat at least another 2 overs tonight. Else, the hosts might have to bat for a couple of overs.

    Ishant Sharma is going off the field now. 3 runs, Shortish this time outside off, Muthusamy cuts this one towards point. Ishant from backward point, runs to his left, puts in a dive like a football player trying to stop the ball with his feet but is unable to do so and also injures himself a bit in that attempt. The physio is out again. Ishant doing some stretching.

    Ravichandran Ashwin to Quinton De Kock. out, OUT! BOWLED! Going away, miss. going away, miss. Coming in, Hit! Beauty from Ashwin. Really set up de Kock nicely. After missing the previous two balls due to the away spin, Quinton comes forward to cover the line on this one. But this does not turn. Goes straight on, is a bit quicker, hence slides through, takes the pad and hits the stumps! Nelson strikes for de Kock and South Africa. Fabulous knock though. The deficit is 132.

    NOT OUT! Shami comes steaming in, it jags back in with the angle. Muthusamy tries to defend it but it goes beneath his bat. He gets hit on the front pad and the Indian players put in a loud appeal. The umpire is unmoved though.

By stumps on Day 2, South Africa had lost Aiden Markram, Theunis de Bruyn and nightwatchman Dane Piedt and were 39/3. Can they put up a fight on Day 3? Live action coming up shortly.
