India lost Mayank Agarwal and KL Rahul early in the second innings, but experienced campaigners Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara saw India through to Stumps, building a 33-run partnership in the process. It was another action-packed day, with 11 wickets falling as the ball posed tough questions to the bat, as has been the case all series. India will be pleased that Kohli and Pujara managed to hang on till the close of play, because Rabada and Jansen were spewing venom in their new-ball spells, having taken out an opener apiece.
