South Africa look to set big target for India in Centurion Test

On Day two, Kohli had become only the fourth India captain to score a half-century or more in South Africa, after Tendulkar (169 in Cape Town 1996), Dhoni (90 in Centurion 2010) and Mohammad Azharuddin (60 in Port Elizabeth 1992). "They are over here to compete and they've got a team that could potentially beat South Africa for the first time here".

1410 hrs IST: FIFTY FOR DEAN ELGAR! Not in convincing fashion but Elgar won't mind! "But the way they stuck out, to have the lead by over 100 tonight is satisfying", he said. Bowling certain lengths, certain lines, we've got that small window to make a play.

De Villiers looked up for the scrap, even when he walked to the crease with his team in a state of starvation at just three runs for two victims.

KL Rahul coming in for Shikhar Dhawan was an obvious change given the latter's problems against the short ball, while Parthiv Patel was selected in place of Wriddhiman Saha, who according to Kohli damaged a hamstring before play. EDGY FOUR! Kohli should have stopped that!

Both batsmen survived some anxious moments, in particular Elgar, who on 29 edged Bumrah at catchable height between wicketkeeper Parthiv Patel and first slip Pujara. The Indian skipper will lose 25 per cent of his match fee and received a demerit point for breaching Level 1 of ICC Code of Conduct. But in Ravichandran Ashwin, Kohli found a batsman who not only hung around, but also played shots as they stitched together a 71-run stand for the seventh wicket.

But at the end, Kohli is performing really well till now in the 2nd test match.

Bumrah was the only bowler to take any wickets.

The White House did not dispute Trump's use of the vulgarity when The Washington Post first reported it Thursday. Regarding DACA, the president reiterated that he was working toward a deal, but that Democrats were not helping.

The overnight partnership of de Villiers and Elgar threatened to take the game away from India.

IST: Jasprit Bumrah joins Ishant in the attack. "I look at it as an opportunity and learnt from it (bowling to de Villiers)". "It's unheard of that a spinner bowls that amount of overs on the first day".

IST: Ishant Sharma begins the proceedings for India and gives away just 1 run. A new day and we hope to see a less agitated Kohli.

Having arrived at 28-2, Kohli was the last man out a day later when he miscued a drive off fast bowler Morne Morkel and was caught at mid-on by de Villiers. A minimum of 98 overs will be bowled today as we lost overs yesterday, due to rain and then bad light. He has a widish slip in place.

The match was interrupted twice. What followed in the next three hours (an hour wasted to rain) and 78 balls was batsmanship of the highest order.

Earlier in the day, Virat Kohli notched up his 21st Test century to keep India in the game as the visitors, in their reply to South Africa's 335 in the first innings, made 307.
