Nagpur: India were found reeling at 149 for 6 as Morne Morkel dismissed Rahane (13) and Kohli (22) in successive overs to put South Africa ahead in Nagpur in the Third Test. The seamer scalped three wickets. The session has completely belonged to South Africa. Morne Morkel to be more accurate.
Tremendous comeback from the pacer- two big wickets of Rahane and Kohli in successive overs to negate any advantage India managed in the morning session.
Simon Harmer too has been quite impressive, picking up two wickets at crucial junctures to dent India further. He first got rid of Pujara right after Lunch and then returned for another tight spell, dismissing Rohit Sharma for just 2 to leave India reeling at 125 for 6.
Ravindra Jadeja then launched the counter-attack, managing a boundary every alternate over to keep the scoreboard ticking. He’s unbeaten on 21, with Saha for company at the other end, and would be the key for India in the final session.
