- 18:14 (IST)Pant And Kohli SolidRishabh Pant and Virat Kohli are looking solid. That has been the case for India this morning so far. Their batters have looked solid in their stay in the middle but have received one with their name on it. Credit must be give to Kohli, who has shown admirable patience to combat the South African pacers. This is an important phase in the game as a partnership here between Kohli and Pant can ensure India a good score but if South Africa manage to get another wicket then India's hopes of getting big one may well be over.SA vs IND Live Score: India 135/4
- 15:18 (IST)All Eyes On Pujara!Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane have another game after their half-centuries in the second innings of the Johannesburg Test.
