India vs South Africa, Highlights, 3rd Test Day 2 at Ranchi, Full Cricket Score: Proteas reach 9/2 before bad light leads to early stumps

16:01 (IST)

A day that belonged to Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami and Umesh Yadav. Wait, scratch that. The day belonged to the Indian cricket team. South Africa had a tough two days on field and when they came on to bat, the team lost two wickets in no time. It will take some fight if they want to take something from this Test. India are playing three spinners and we will have to see how the pitch will behave tomorrow. 

So do join us tomorrow again for all the updates from Day Three's action. Thank you and have a good day.

15:55 (IST)

So it's official now. Umpires have called stumps. Second day in a row where bad light stopped play and resulted in early stumps. 

15:35 (IST)

Off they go... It was on the cards actually. Despite the spinners bowling, the light hasn't been good enough. Yesterday we saw a similar situation when umpires stopped play due to bad light six overs after the tea break. Nevertheless, today there is a strong breeze bowling across the ground and it can take the dark clouds away from us. Both umpires are still on the field and hoping for the light to improve.

15:28 (IST)

The debutant Nadeem bowled two overs before the bad light. With 657 wickets to his name across formats, the 30-year old Jharkhand cricketer is presently being regarded as a domestic legend. In fact, since the 2015-16 season, the left-armer has taken 144 wickets in the Ranji Trophy at an astounding average of 23.8 – most by anyone else during the same time-frame.

15:27 (IST)

After 5 overs,South Africa 9/2 ( Zubayr Hamza 0 , Faf du Plessis (C) 1)

Back-to-back maidens for Nadeem. Not giving any room to the batsmen. Bowling to the stumps, some angling in and some skidding through. He's testing the batsmen, which is always a good thing.  And play is stopped because of bad light.

15:26 (IST)

Two absolute jaffas produced by Shami and Umesh to get rid of the both South African openers within the first twelve balls of this innings. Meanwhile, it is quite gloomy out there and perhaps,the umpires have taken the right call by asking Kohli not to bowl his fast bowlers at this point.

15:22 (IST)

After 4 overs,South Africa 9/2 ( Zubayr Hamza 0 , Faf du Plessis (C) 1)

After Nadeem, Ravindra Jadeja comes on to bowl the fourth over. Starts off with two full-tosses which Faf du Plessis fails to punish. Checks his line and length in the next four balls and concedes no runs.

15:19 (IST)

After 3 overs,South Africa 8/2 ( Zubayr Hamza 0 , Faf du Plessis (C) 0)

Shahbaz Nadeem bowls his first over in Test cricket. Decent one from the left-arm spinner as he bowls a maiden to Zubayr Hamza. The line is accurate and he's also mixing it up with flighted deliveries and outside off stump balls.

15:17 (IST)

After 2 overs,South Africa 8/2 ( Zubayr Hamza 0 , )

Umesh Yadav takes the new ball and just like Shami, he also picks up a wicket with a ripper. The first five ball were ordinary but comes up with a brilliant bouncer in the final ball to remove the batsman. Just four runs from the over.

India vs South Africa, 3rd Test, Day 2, Latest Updates: So it's official now. Umpires have called stumps. Second day in a row where bad light stopped play and resulted in early stumps.

Day 1 report: Rohit Sharma continued his sensational run as a Test opener with his third ton of the series, allowing India to regain control of the proceedings after a top-order collapse in the third and final game against South Africa on Saturday.

With India reduced to 39 for three, Rohit (117 batting off 164 balls) and Ajinkya Rahane (83 batting off 135) shared an unbeaten 185-run stand to stage the home team's remarkable recovery.
India were 224 for three before bad light, followed by rain, forced an early end to play on day one with only six overs possible in the final session.

With his stellar effort, Rohit, who hammered 14 boundaries and four sixes, became the first Indian opener since Sunil Gavaskar to score more than two centuries in a Test series. Gavaskar had achieved the feat way back in 1970.

Rohit's Test century number six came with a massive six off-spinner Dane Piedt. He exercised caution when Kagiso Rabada was steaming in the morning before going for his strokes.

If that was not enough, Rahane matched him at the other end and brought up his 21st half-century off just 70 balls. Piedt, who was included in place of Senuran Muthusamy, cut a sorry figure against Rohit's fury, giving away 43 runs in his six overs.

Debutant left-arm spinner George Linde, who replaced an injured Keshav Maharaj, ended the day with tidy figures of 11-1-40-0. Such was the Indian duo's dominance after lunch that Rabada, who had a fiery opening spell of 7-4-15-2, looked listless in the second spell that read 4-0-30-0.

Rahane matched Sharma shot for shot and at one point even had a better strike rate than his explosive Mumbai partner as he notched up his fastest half-century in India. Sharma, however, had a testing opening session as he survived on seven after reviewing an LBW successfully.

He also survived a run-out chance when he was out of crease but Zubayr Hamza's throw from point missed the stumps. Uneven bounce with a few staying really low greeted the Indian openers in the morning as Rabada and Lungi Ngidi made full use of the conditions to give the visitors their best start of the series.

Rabada got rid of opener Mayank Agarwal (10) and Cheteshwar Pujara (0) inside the first hour of play. The first breakthrough came in Rabada's third over when the pacer swung it away with Agarwal edging it to Dean Elgar at third slip. Rabada went on to dismiss Pujara for a duck in his fifth over following a successful review by the South Africans after the on-field umpire Richard Illingworth turned down an lbw appeal.

But it was Nortje who earned the biggest wicket as he sent back Pune Test's double centurion Kohli after the skipper failed to read one that came back in sharply. Kohli took the review but only to be turned down with an umpire's call and the skipper went back to the pavilion frustrated.

Earlier, 30-year-old left-arm spinner Shabaz Nadeem became the 296th player to represent India when he was handed a surprise Test debut less than 24 hours after being included in the squad in place of an injured Kuldeep Yadav.

In his bid to avoid the ignominy of a 3-0 whitewash, Du Plessis made as many as five changes to his team with two of them — Keshav Maharaj and Aiden Markram — being forced ones as they both are injured.

In came Ngidi, Zubayr Hamza, Heinrich Klaasen, Linde and Piedt with Vernon Philander, Theunis de Bruyn and Muthusamy being left out.
