India vs South Africa 3rd Test Day 3: In the chase of 212, South Africa are in full control as they are at 101/2 needing 111 runs to win the decisive third Test against India at the Newlands in Cape Town. Proteas skipper Dean Elgar was removed by Jasprit Bumrah on the last ball of Day 3 after adding 78 runs with Keegan Petersen for the second wicket. Mohammed Shami is the other wicket-taker for India in the fourth innings. Earlier, India were bowled out for 198 runs in the third innings where Rishabh Pant scored a brilliant hundred under challenging conditions. Pant also became the first Asian wicketkeeper to score a Test ton in South Africa. He added 95 runs with captain Virat Kohli for the fifth wicket. The Indian captain had shown a great temperament but added just 29 runs to his name in 143 balls. Struggling with the form, Cheteshwar Pujara, and Ajinkya Rahane failed to impress yet again as the duo was dismissed for low scores in the second innings. For South Africa, Marco Jansen was the pick of South African bowlers with his four wickets, Lungi Ngidi and Kagiso Rabada picked three wickets each. Tied 1-1 in the three-match series, both teams will be aiming to win the ongoing third Test to clinch the series. (SCORECARD)

- 13:52 (IST)"It's All About Creating Impact": Shardul Thakur"I think the game is evenly poised. It's totally a second innings game now and there is a lot of time left in the game. There is still some life in the pitch and help for the bowlers. The batters can also score runs, so it can go anywhere. Frankly speaking, I don't think about whether I'm a bowling all-rounder or batting all-rounder. It's all about creating an impact when I'm out there and do something for the team. At the end of the day, I want my performance to be counted in a way that it helps the team to win," said Shardul Thakur ahead of start of Day 3.SA vs IND Live Score: India 57/2, lead by 70 runs
