Is the pitch doing its thing?

India start at 202/0. The final session yesterday was washed out but the weather seems to be better today morning. Still cloudy

DROPPED: de Kock puts down Rohit

The batsman lofts him through midwicket for a boundary and off the very next delivery Philander induces an outside edge. But de Kock, standing up, drops it

And now a run out chance...

Mayank pushes for a second run off a misfield. Rohit was slow to take off and is forced to put in a dive

Maiden test ton for Mayank

There were a couple of nervy attempts at quick runs on 99 but he goes past that with a dab on the offside to bring up a well-deserved ton

The wait for the ball...

South Africa are now trying to rush through the overs with their spinners in a bid to get quickly to that 80-over mark

150 for Rohit

South Africa's negative lines are being countered by reverse-sweeps and even lofts. Rohit gets to yet another landmark and South Africa appear clueless

Wicket: Finally!

Rohit Sharma falls for 176, stumped against Maharaj after overbalancing

Lunch: India 324/1

What a frenetic run-scoring session that was. India added 122 in it, seemingly making up for time lost on the first day

WICKET: Pujara falls to Philander

WICKET: Pujara falls to Philander

150 for Mayank

He's not getting the boundaries as frequently now, but Mayank is putting his head down and seeing through this phase. His maiden Test ton is also worth 150 now

WICKET: Muthusamy bags Kohli

A very soft dismissal. Kohli tries to work one away from outside off to the legside but the ball comes on slowly and keeps a little low too
