India vs South Africa 2nd Test, Day 3 Highlights: South Africa Bowled Out For 275, India Lead By 326 Runs
IND vs SA 2nd Test Day 3 Highlights: India bowled out South Africa for 275 to take 326-run first-innings lead at stumps on Day 3.
India bowled out South Africa for 275 runs in the final session of Day three to claim a 326-run lead at stumps on Saturday. Keshav Maharaj and Vernon Philander were exceptional with the bat as they delayed India's charge and played out nearly the whole day in Pune. Philander remained unbeaten on 44 while Maharaj scored his maiden Test half-century before he edged one to Rohit Sharma, stationed at leg slip, off Ravichandran Ashwin. Kagiso Rabada was the last wicket to fall as Ashwin picked up his fourth wicket of the innings. Earlier, Faf du Plessis scored his 21st Test half-century. For India, apart from Ashwin, Umesh Yadav picked up three while Mohammed Shami took two wickets. Virat Kohli will have plenty of time to think whether India would like to enforce the follow-on or not. The pitch has started to turn and uneven bounce may force Kohli to bat for a session and give South Africa a target of over 450 in five sessions.(SCORECARD)

Kagiso Rabada survives!Ravindra Jadeja goes past the inside half of Kagiso Rabada's bat and Wriddhiman Saha completed a difficult take behind the wicket. Umpire gave it not-out and Virat Kohli went for a review. The replays confirm that there was no edge and India lose their review as Kagiso Rabada survives.
