Ball By Ball Commentary

Over 51. no runs. Bowler: Lungi Ngidi. India: 10-151(rr 2.96)
51.2 OUT! Caught. Lungi Ngidi to Jasprit Bumrah. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to short extra cover, by Philander. Six for Ngidi as Bumrah tentatively prods forwards and lobs the ball towards cover. Philander takes a couple of steps and comfortably grabs the ball.South Africa win by a huge margin of 135 runs and they take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series with one game left to play. Today, India might have had hopes of chasing down the total but that quickly went as Cheteshwar Pujara run himself out before Parthiv Patel and Ravichandran Ashwin fell in quick succession. The South African bowlers were superb all Test and the pace bowlers were different class on this surface. Ngidi in particular used his extra pace and bounce superbly and ruffled a few Indian feathers.Next Test is at the Wanderers and India will be looking to show a better performance with the bat and hope to get back some pride. See you then.
51.1 Lungi Ngidi to Jasprit Bumrah. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Kock.

Flat-batted from Shami and the ball skews off the splice to Morne. Not the hardest catch Morne will ever take but Ngidi will remember this moment for the rest of his life.

36.6 APPEAL! Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Lungi Ngidi to Ravichandran Ashwin. Short, outside off stump on the back foot Fended, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, by de Kock, appeal made for Caught. A bit of excitement from the South Africans. The ball follows Ashwin and there is a noise heard as the batsman fends. On the replay though the ball is nowhere near the bat or gloves. Very strange.

Pujara what have you done. For the second time in this Test he has run himself out just when India needed him to stand up. The ball had gone out to the boundary and he felt the three was on but you cannot take on the arm of AB de Villiers. Brilliant throw next to the stumps and Pujara is short even with the dive.

24.1 Kagiso Rabada to Cheteshwar Pujara. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot defending, to mid wicket for no runs. Hello and welcome to Day Five of the second Test. India are well and truly on the ropes after a fantastic performance from the Proteas bowlers last night. In the space of 15 overs India had been reduced to 26-3 before Cheteshwar Pujara and Parthiv Patel settled things, while being put under immense pressure. Today is not going to get any easier either with the surface only getting tougher to bat on, this could be over quite quickly if the bowlers put it in the right areas. It will take a monumental innings from a couple of Indian batsmen if they are to draw or win.
Over 23. 1 run. Bowler: Keshav Maharaj. India: 3-35(rr 1.52)
23.6 Keshav Maharaj to Parthiv Patel. Stock length ball, outside off stump moves in front defending, to short leg for no runs. What a fantastic day of Test cricket and the final 23 overs have summed up how quickly this game can change. The pitch has sprung to life when the South African bowlers got the ball in their hands and Lungi Ngidi in particular was absolutely superb. His two wickets, including the big one of Virat Kohli, has put the home side in the driving seat and nearing closer to a 2-0 lead in the series. India will need to scrap hard tomorrow and they have the perfect man to do so at the crease, Cheteshwar Pujara. Join us tomorrow for Day five which should be a cracker.

20.2 APPEAL! Lungi Ngidi to Parthiv Patel. Length ball, off stump on the front foot flick, hit pad to wicketkeeper for no runs, by de Kock, appeal made for Caught. Despite a huge appeal there isn't going to be a review from South Africa. Brushed the pad as the ball goes down the legside.

18.3 Lungi Ngidi to Parthiv Patel. Short, outside off stump on the back foot working, hit body to short leg for no runs. I think that has hit him in the ribs. Parthiv instantly falls to the floor looking in some discomfort.

16.6 OUT! L.B.W. Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Lungi Ngidi to Virat Kohli. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the back foot defending, hit pad. What a huge wicket for the debutant. Kohli is trapped on the crease as the ball nips back, stays low and crashes into the front pad. The umpire's finger goes up and so does the signal for the review from the Indian captain. He is hoping the ball is going to miss but it's smashing into leg stump. The crowd are loving this.

12.1 OUT! Caught. Lungi Ngidi to Lokesh Rahul. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to backward point, by Maharaj. Lapse in concentration shown by Rahul. He sees the debutant come into the action and breaths a sigh of relief but his joy soon turns to despair.
