That brings us to the end of today's coverage. The day belonged to South Africa and India are playing the catching up game way too early in the Test. The Indian fans will pin their hopes on the Kohli-Pandya stand. The Indian captain is 15 away from his ton. Pandya, with a really odd trigger movement (front and across), saw out the day with Kohli. But they will have to restart once again tomorrow. An exciting day of Test cricket awaits us. What will happen? Join us tomorrow to find out. 

For now though, its time to say good bye!

The day was pretty even going into tea, despite Pujara's needless run out. Kohli is holding fort but three wickets in the final session put South Africa in command. Kohli-Pandya partnership holds all the cards going into day three.... what an intriguing Test this is turning out to be, despite the pitch and thanks largely to India's woeful batting.

After 61 overs,South Africa 193/2 ( Hashim Amla 43 , AB de Villiers 19)

Morkel bowls what is the last over of the eventful second day. Just one run is scored off it, as the topsy-turvy day comes to a quiet end. India head to stumps on a score of 183/5, with Kohli and Pandya under tremendous pressure to pull the hosts out of the tight spot that they find themselves under right now. 

20:58 (IST)

After 60 overs,India 182/5 ( Virat Kohli (C) 85 , Hardik Pandya 10)

The Indian skipper gets a thick edge off the penultimate ball that carries all the way to the third man boundary, moving him to 85. Six off this over, with one more to go after this.

Pandya smacks the penultimate ball of Ngidi's ninth over down the ground, with the ball beating Markram to the long-on boundary. Wide signalled off the last ball, with Ngidi firing this one too short and wide. Five off the over.

India vs South Africa, 2nd Test, Day 2 in Centurion, latest updates: Morkel bowls what is the last over of the eventful second day. Just one run is scored off it, as the topsy-turvy day comes to a quiet end. India head to stumps on a score of 183/5, with Kohli and Pandya under tremendous pressure to pull the hosts out of the tight spot that they find themselves under right now.

Day 1 report: Off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin was delighted after his three wickets helped India reduce South Africa to 269/6 in their first innings on the first day of the second Test match on Saturday.

Aiden Markram (94) and Hashim Amla (82) threatened India with signs of a prospective big total. But India's bowling unit, spearheaded by Ashwin (3/90), took four wickets in the final session to show the team's intent of making a strong comeback after the defeat in the opening Test in Cape Town.

The Tamil Nadu tweaker accounted for openers Markram and Dean Elgar (31) and Quinton de Kock (0) to peg the hosts back. Hardik Pandya then effected two run-outs of Amla and Vernon Philander as India came back strongly into the game.

"I like to think I have kept us in the game. It could have so easily been a game where they could have run away with it after the second session. I like to believe I was just dogged enough," Ashwin said at the post-match press conference.

"Within my mind, this was probably one of the relaxed days of my cricket career. I wasn't really thinking too much and delivering the ball. My only intent was to try and keep it in a particular spot. Try and deliver from different positions in the crease, and I was really enjoying it," he added.

"Those wickets in the last session are valid incentive for us going into the Day 2. It was due to extraordinary work from Hardik. New ball is not doing a lot actually. If those two batsmen walked out tomorrow morning, it would have been tougher for us."

Ashwin revealed that the team was thinking of going with an all-seam attack having seen the wicket two days before the match started. But the curator reduced the greenish part of the wicket, giving Ashwin the chance to play the match.

"Two days from the game it looked like we are going to play an all-seam attack. And then when we walked into the ground yesterday, it was white in colour and the grass was coming off," Ashwin said.

"All of a sudden I really had to pull myself back and think I am in the game now. Today morning when we came to the ground, it looked like a wicket that was really flat and had to have a spinner in the game. I am happy with the wicket."
