At lunch India were 85/2 with a high score on the cards. But the South African bowlers bounced back with quick wickets after lunch and reduced India to 127 for 6. Wriddhiman Saha and Ravindra Jadeja put up a 48 run 7th wicket partnership before Jadeja departed. After that India bundled out on 215 without much resistance from the tailenders.
