South Africa

Janneman Malan was knocked over for a superbly-paced 91 and soon after Temba Bavuma was caught and bowled by Yuzvendra Chahal for 35, but the classy right-handers have put South Africa into the box seat. Earlier, the 132-run stand between Malan and Quinton de Kock was broken by Shardul Thakur as the latter departed for 78 off 66 balls. Bhuvneshwar Kumar has proved mighty expensive, leaking 57 runs in his 6 overs. South Africa are just 18 away from the target and look primed for another series win after having come from behind to win the red-ball rubber.
