|Hello and welcome to sports star Live coverage of Day 4 of the third Test between India and South Africa in Cape Town Newlands.|
Day 3 report
Controlling a Rishabh Pant is similar to controlling a wild horse. He can sprint to the finish line in a row, but he can also sprint off the track with ease.
At Newlands in Cape Town on Thursday, Pant was able to balance his aggressiveness with the need to stay in the wicket after Proteas beat India early in the third day.
The southpaw’s 100-game unbeaten run on Thursday was a classic. The pacemaker is knocked down by the kind of arrogance that only geniuses have.
After India were sacked with 198 to set South Africa on target at 212, the hosts lost Aiden Markram to pick up a long shot from Mohammad Shami.
Skipper Dean Elgar handled the ball deftly and left at the last minute, 30 by ‘goalkeeper Pant’ with an excellent 30 from the leg side of Jasprit Bumrah. – full report
