    So even after managing to score 100 runs in the session, they trail by a massive 465 runs and Faf du Plessis will now have to bat out of his skin with the tail if his side want to get some respectable total and gain some confidence. Can the Protea skipper do it or will India continue to steamroll the visitors? Join us for the 2nd Session to find out.

    The day started on a positive note for India as Shami got rid of nightwatchman, Anrich Nortje. Theunis de Bruyn was looking good and got off to a start but failed to convert it as Umesh Yadav sent him back to the pavilion. Skipper Faf du Plessis and wicket-keeper batsman, Quinton de Kock then put up a fight. The duo counter-attacked the Indian bowlers and took charge of the situation. They added 75 runs, with the skipper getting to his fifty before Ashwin’s gem got the better of de Kock. Muthusamy then joined his skipper and they managed to see through the session.

    40.2 Ravindra Jadeja to Senuran Muthusamy, no run, DROPPED BY VIRAT KOHLI! Finally a moment when the Indian skipper does something wrong. A tough chance but you expect the Indian skipper to take that one. Floated on middle and off, Muthusamy looks to flick it towards the leg side. The ball goes uppishly to the right of short mid-wicket where Kohli is positioned. He dives and tries to pluck it out with one hand but the ball does not stick in his hand. Muthusamy breathes a sigh of relief because had he got out, the resistance after this looks pretty bleak.
