    EDGED AND DROPPED! Shami should have had his second. Mayank Agarwal is the culprit here. Good length ball on middle and off.

The ball lobs of his hand and goes behind. They take a single.

    OUT: Jadeja holes out and with that India have decided to declare! And guess what? Mutusamy has not overstepped this time. Tossed up on middle, Jadeja looks to whack it over long on. He gets the height but not the distance. It goes to the right of long on, Theunis de Bruyn runs to his right and takes a very good catch. Jadeja misses out on a well-deserved ton but this shows the heart of this man. He could have taken his time to achieve the milestone but he decides to go for the big one and falls. Nonetheless, the man has played an innings worth being called as ‘Sir’. India declare their innings at 601/5.

    Virat Kohli has moved past 250 now as India have reached 600-run mark. This is a huge total. Jadeja, meanwhile, is into the 90s.

It was a gruesome and tiring day for the South African bowlers. They started off were not consistent with them. They were on and off throughout the day. Kagiso Rabada did not start the day well but at the end of the day was the only bowler to get all 3 wickets. Nortje was impressive with his pace on debut but struggled for consistency. Philander bowled well but had nothing to show for it. Faf du Plessis would be looking for a better showing on Day 2 from his bowlers.

So the day belonged to India but there were some positives for the South Africans as well. Will South Africa find a way to restrict India under 400 or will India continue to pile on the South African misery?
