IND v SA: Kohli-Pant Hold Ground After South Africa's Initial Burst, Score 130/4
IND v SA: Rishabh Pant and Virat Kohli have held their ground after South Africa's initial burst cost India two wickets in the 1st session of day 3 at Cape Town.
Resuming the day at 57/2, South Africa got Cheteshwar Pujara on the second ball with a leg trap. Keegan Petersen pulled off a blinder at the leg slip. In the next over, Kagiso Rabada removed Ajinkya Rahane with the extra bounce as India were down to 58/4 in the first 10 minutes of the day.
Rishabh Pant joined Virat Kohli at the crease and the two began the rebuilding process. Pant looked a bit controlled but didn't hesitate to punish the ball within his reach. Kohli, on the other hand, turned on his defensive mode and left everything outside his body.
The duo have so far added 72 runs in 147 balls in which Pant has reached his fifty in 58 balls while Kohli has only contributed 14 runs. India has a lead of 143 runs as of now.
India - 130/4
