The game should have probably started by now. There are no signs of rain right now but few showers are expected and due to excessive rain, there are some regions that have become muddy.
We expected a free flowing game between these two but the rain has played a big part till now. Welcome to action of Day 4 and the conditions are same today as well but hopefully we can expect some action. With so much rain we have forget where this match stands. Khawaja is stranded on 195 but looks like it will be the Proteas who will come out bat next. Stalemate looks the likeable option. However, let’s first hope for some action. Stay tuned.
...Day 4, Session 1...
The results are in from the umpires and they have called the end of Day 3. STUMPS. Not a single ball was bowled. It was predicted to be that kind of day but the next couple of days promise to give us some action. As it goes by, draw looks like the most possible result but we will let for you to decide. Join us again early on Day 4 at 0430 IST (1100 GMT, the previous day) for all the action. Till then, cheers!
