South Africa 182-2 (56 ovs) vs India | Scorecard

And that is tea! 

India have done well to pull back a couple of wickets -- both taken by Ashwin.

104 runs have come in the 2nd session and with Amla and AB looking in fine touch, expect a few more runs in the last session of the day.

Pandya continues.

He bowls down the leg side, AB deflects it past fine leg for a boundary.

The batsmen then take a couple of singles. Six runs come off the over.

Bumrah continues. 

AB nearly chops it on to his stumps. Just one run comes off the over.

Pandya gets another go and replaces Ashwin from the pavillion end.

Short and wide and AB gets a single on the off-side.

He gives two runs in the over.

Ishant continues and he gives one run in the over.

Ashwin continues. AB plays the reverse sweeps and gets a boundary for his effort. What a way to start the over!

He then gets a single to covers. Five runs come off the over.

Ishant continues and Amla gets a good edge only to be dropped by a diving Parthiv Patel behind the wickets. 

That is another reprieve for Amla. 

Ashwin continues and eight big runs come off the over.

Ishant replaces Shami at the other end. 

He is dispatched for four and that is the only four that come off the over.
