Live Score: India vs South Africa
The Indian cricket team will look to take early wickets against South Africa to put pressure on the hosts early on and try to go hard at them on Day 4 of the second Test against South Africa on Tuesday. While South Africa will aim to put a tall score on board and aided with the lead of the first innings, they'll look to put this game beyond India. Virat Kohli, almost single-handedly kept India in hunt after scoring a brilliant 153 as India were bowled out for 307 in the first innings. Ravichandran Ashwin gave Kohli able company before getting dismissed as South Africa stretched their lead past the 100-run mark on a rain-hit third day at the SuperSport Park. Kohli was in his elements before AB de Villiers turned the tide in South Africa's favour on an eventful third day that was affected by rain and bad light. De Villiers scored his 42nd half-century as South Africa reached 90 for two at stumps in their second innings, overcoming a disastrous start to lead India by 118 runs. Only 10 overs were possible in the final session as rain and bad light hampered play. At the close, de Villiers was unbeaten on 50 runs (78 balls, 6 fours) while Dean Elgar was batting on 36 not out (78 balls, 4 fours). They added 87 runs for the third wicket, with South Africa's overall lead at 118 runs. (Live Scorecard)

Post tea, play only got underway for 20 minutes before a thunderstorm washed away nearly an hour. At resumption of play, Indian skipper had been clearly unhappy with the wet ground and how it affected the ball as well. No overs were lost though and when play resumed the session had been extended by an hour past local time to end at 6.30pm local time. However, only 5.1 overs were possible on resumption as the umpires stopped play for bad light. A lot happened in that passage of play though. Parthiv Patel missed a simple chance from Elgar (on 29) who edged behind off Jasprit Bumrah (2-30) in the 25th over. The wicketkeeper kept watching as the ball sailed in the gap and away for four, expecting Cheteshwar Pujara at first slip to go for it.
De Villiers then reached his half-century off 78 balls, just before the second stoppage in this session. The umpires waited nearly 66 minutes before calling off play due to poor light.
