India, thanks to Rohit Sharma's maiden double century in Test cricket, declared their first innings at 497 for nine.
Rohit Sharma converted his sixth Test century into a double hundred as he smashed South Africa bowlers to all parts of the ground.
Rohit was well-supported by Ajinkya Rahane from the other end who went on to score his 11th Test century in the third Test vs South Africa in Ranchi.
During the latter stages of India's innings, Umesh Yadav came out all guns blazing as he smashed five sixes in his 10-ball knock of 31.
South Africa got off to a nightmare start as they lost both their openers cheaply. Mohammed Shami removed Dean Elgar for a duck while Umesh Yadav accounted for Quinton de Kock (4).
South Africa were nine for two before bad light forced the officials to take the players off the field. India were 488 runs ahead of the visitors with bad light forcing early stumps on Day 2.
