Delhi Test Day 3 – Bad Light Stops Play With India On 190/4, Lead Of 403

Cricket, News, Sports

After bowling South Africa out for 121, India came out to bat on the third day to secure as high a lead as possible. The plan seemed counter intuitive as Morkel removed the top 3 cheaply. Rohit Sharma was promoted to number 3 but disappointed everyone again by scoring a first ball duck. But then Kohli and Rahane came together to solidify the innings.

Both Abbott and Morkel bowled with heart and troubled the batsmen but were unable to dislodge the two. Kohli scored at a faster pace while Rahane fulfilled the sheet anchor role. First innings hero for South Africa Dane Piedt could not grab any wickets this time around. When bad light finally stopped the 4th day’s play, Rahane was batting on 52 and Kohli was on 83. India are 403 ahead.
