Keshav Maharaj and Marco Jansen's useful 38-run stand came to an end with the dismissal of the former. Jasprit Bumrah finally entered the wickets column as he beats Maharaj on the drive to have him bowled for 21. The last man to fall for South Africa was Lungi Ngidi, whose wicket handed Shardul Thakur the best figures by an Indian bowler in South Africa. The seaming all-rounder snared 7 for 61, allowing India to contain the lead to 27 runs. It was truly a marvellous spell by the supremely talented all-rounder.
