Even as South Africa have found themselves in a promising position in the daunting 240-run chase, ending the third day’s play at 118/2, Cheteshwar Pujara is confident that it will not be a plain sailing task from hereon for them to get the remaining 122 runs and level the series. Pujara feels the pitch will deteriorate and make batting a tough ask. Leading South Africa’s chase is skipper Dean Elgar, who has dig in for 121 balls and is only four shy of a half-century despite playing and missing frequently. His gritty stay has raised alarm for the visitors, who are aiming to secure their maiden series win in South Africa.
