Thakur to van der Dussen, no run

Huge appeal for lbw to one that came back in sharply. Not given and Kohli reviews. If there was no inside edge on that, it looked very close indeed. He's not very far forward, prodding from the crease, the ball jags past the bat, clear gap between bat and ball. It's umpire's call on clipping the wickets. So Rassie survives. Great piece of bowling by Shardul. Beat him on the inside edge, and it looked really close in real-time. This is a bouncy pitch though, and the bounce would have had it only clipping the top of the stumps as per HawkEye.

It's a sad state of affairs when while we ONLY need 56 runs and have lost ONLY 3 wickets, our batting is so fragile that this is now considered anything but a canter. Doubt we'd be thinking the same if it was NZ or Australia in this scenario.
DUDE??!!!!

The degrees of movement generated is absolutely flipping nuts! You literally never in on this deck. Our tail, which is quite a long one, will get rolled quick quick if exposed!

Besides, it's like 35c out there today, make the Indians sweat!!!

Mark Nicholas doing a terrible job interviewing his bum buddy Smith. Not asking any of the questions the SA fans want answered..

I think a 2-1 series defeat against the No.6 ranked SA side is punishment enough...

Yeah I haven't been too impressed with the pitches this series.. everyone wants a little bit of spiciness but I feel like its been over the top. Noone has really been in.. there's always been a delivery with your name on it

It's kuk hot in CT - no breeze either.

We've been notified on our Neighbourhood Watch group to look out for anyone operating cart horses - they're not allowed to in this heat

Rather this than those boring flat tracks or the nightmare Indian pitches where the ball turns square.
