OUT! L.B.W. Ravindra Jadeja to Keshav Maharaj. Stock ball back of a length, off stump on the back foot working, hit pad to. When it came, the end came quickly. Three wickets in eight balls for India to wrap up the series. Maharaj back on his stumps and missing his work across the line. India take a well-deserved 2-0 lead that wraps up the series. They have been utterly dominant in this match and since racking up 601-5 in the first innings it has just been a matter of time before they wrapped up victory. Day 5 goes unused with the wickets shared around today amongst this excellent attack after they chose to enforce the follow on.

FOUR! Dean Elgar to Ravindra Jadeja. Stock ball half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past long off for 4 runs. Given plenty of air but not on the perfect length. Jadeja's eyes light up as he sets himself to bludgeon the ball down the ground.

SIX! Senuran Muthusamy to Ravindra Jadeja. Stock length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. Make that Jadeja's second maximum. Wasn't even out of the middle but he is strong enough to clear the fence.
150.1
4
FOUR! Senuran Muthusamy to Ravindra Jadeja. Stock ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. Probably not the best length to bowl at this pace. Sits in the wicket asking to be slapped to the fence. That is exactly what Jadeja does.

FOUR! Keshav Maharaj to Virat Kohli. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed past deep backward point for 4 runs. Offered width and takes the invitation with open arms.

FOUR! Keshav Maharaj to Virat Kohli. Stock ball half volley, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control past long on for 4 runs. How hard was this hit? Didn't go any further than a couple of yards from the fielder but he had no chance.
149.3

SIX! Keshav Maharaj to Virat Kohli. Stock length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed in the air under control over long off for 6 runs. Wonderful piece of batting. Using the feet to get to the pitch before opening the body and lofting the ball over the top.
149.1

SIX! Keshav Maharaj to Ravindra Jadeja. Stock length ball, outside off stump down the track Slog, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Big six into the crowd. This was right in the slot as Jadeja danced down and got to the pitch.

FOUR! Senuran Muthusamy to Virat Kohli. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot cutting, outside edge past third man for 4 runs. Another edge which doesn't go to hand. Faf was a little wider trying to cover two places so wasn't in position to take the catch at first slip.
148.1

FOUR! Senuran Muthusamy to Ravindra Jadeja. Stock ball half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past long on for 4 runs. Given more flight but lands in the arc. Slammed back down the ground.

SIX! Senuran Muthusamy to Virat Kohli. Stock ball back of a length, off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. All too easy. Dragged down and sits up asking to be whacked away.

4
FOUR! Keshav Maharaj to Virat Kohli. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, well timed past long on for 4 runs. Kohli is definitely turning the screw now. Not terrible deliveries from Maharaj, maybe a touch overpitched, but the Indian captain has got on one knee and hammered the ball wide of mid on.

FOUR! Keshav Maharaj to Virat Kohli. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. In total control from start to finish. Rocking back and lofting it over the top for a one-bounce four.

FOUR! Keshav Maharaj to Ravindra Jadeja. Stock ball full toss, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs.

FOUR! Keshav Maharaj to Virat Kohli. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, outside edge past third man for 4 runs. Turn and bounce. Maharaj has found something from this end and has caused Kohli problems. Maybe a second slip is required.

FOUR! Keshav Maharaj to Virat Kohli. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge past third man for 4 runs. Much closer to slip this time but still not close enough for Faf to bring it in. Kohli moves past 150.

FOUR! Keshav Maharaj to Virat Kohli. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot cutting, outside edge past third man for 4 runs. Flashes past Faf before he can even react. Not really a catching opportunity.

FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Virat Kohli. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. The whole of Kohli's bat must be a sweet spot. Whenever he decides to turn it on the ball pings off the middle and goes to whatever gap he was aiming for.

FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Virat Kohli. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Perfection personified. Even with extra cover getting a hand to the ball he wasn't stopping it from reaching the fence. So much power with so little effort.

FOUR! Vernon Philander to Virat Kohli. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge past third man for 4 runs. Genuine edge and chance. Good movement off the wicket but the ball splits the keeper and first slip and doesn't carry to a diving de Kock.

FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Ajinkya Rahane. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, top edge past fine leg for 4 runs. More anguish for the bowler. Beating Rahane for pace on the pull but not having the ball go to hand.And with that the umpire's have decided the light is not good enough to carry on. Stumps are called.Good day for India after winning the toss. 273-3 at close with a fabulous century from Mayank Agarwal once again. Handy half-centuries from Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli has built up the lead and took advantage of some loose bowling.Been tough for the bowlers again, after they weren't able to capitalise on the early movement. Kagiso Rabada has been a shining light but he's had no back-up from the other end.Could be more of the same tomorrow if South Africa don't use this new ball. See you then.

Second life in two balls for de Bruyn. Pushing out in front, Kohli grasses a regulation chance at third slip and it also runs through his legs for four.
