India trailing by 166 runs got off to a disastorus start as they lost Vijay and Dhawan early on day four before bad light stopped play. Then Steyn, Philander and Peterson combined to demolish the Indian batting for 223 as the visitors failed to get any partnerships. Rahane played very well but was the lone man standing. Once batting with the tail, he opened up to play some delightful shots but missed out on his maiden century when Philander bowled him. India got a lead of only 57 runs.

South Africa were off to a solid start with Petersen scoring fifty adding 103 runs for the opening wicket. India took three quick wickets on morning of day three but Kallis and de Villiers played their shots as they brought the home side closer to the Indian total. Kallis hit a century in his final Test as South Africa then got well ahead into the lead thanks to the partnership between du Plessis and Peterson who hit a fifty. Jadeja was the only star for them as he picked up his maiden six wicket haul.

!

India will be disappointed with the result, they were on top at the end of first day when they were 181-1 when bad light stopped play. Steyn then brought the home side back into the match picking up six-for after which the visitors never came back. Vijay missed out on his century.Pujara, Rahane hit fifties as Kohli and Dhawan got starts but did not convert.
