India vs South Africa (IND vs SA) 2nd Test Highlights: India skipper Virat Kohli struck his highest Test score of 254 not out against South Africa to help his team pose an imosing 601/5 dec. in the first innings. After India’s declaration, the Indian bowlers continued to apply pressure on the batsmen, in what was the last phase of play for the day in Pune. De Bruyn and nightwatchman Nortje have done well to survive.

Faf du Plessis’ move to play an extra seamer did not work his favour. Anrich Nortje remained wicketless on the opening day of the Test with 60 runs from 13 overs. Mayank Agarwal scored his second century on the trot whereas Cheteshwar Pujara provided him support after a beauty of a delivery from Kagiso Rabada got rid of in-form batsman Rohit Sharma. Rabada was the only successful bowler on Day Two with three wickets to his name.

17:07 (IST)11 Oct 2019
Day 2: Stumps - South Africa trail by 565 runs

Nightwatchman Anrich Nortje and Theunis de Bruyn esnure there is no further damage done to the South African batting line-up. At the end of days play. SA- 36/3

16:56 (IST)11 Oct 2019
Drama at day end!

A caught behind decision reviewed by South Africa, and Nortje survives.

- Mayank drops a catch off Nortje in the cordon; Shami the unlucky bowler again.

The drama hasn't ceased yet.

16:39 (IST)11 Oct 2019
Shami strikes

Shami strikes on the first ball of his spell, Bavuma is the latest casualty for the Proteas. But that was not before India went for a DRS Review:

The appeal for a caught-behind was turned down by umpire Chris Gaffaney which forced IND to take the DRS. UltraEdge confirms a spike and its out! SA- 33/3

16:37 (IST)11 Oct 2019
Jadeja comes into the attack

Time for spin test for the batsmen as Jadeja is brought, who has two slips and a silly-point for company. And immediately he makes an impact as Bruyn misjudges the quicker delivery but the leading edge lands in no-man's land. SA- 30/2

16:19 (IST)11 Oct 2019
Bavuma survives

Wriddhiman Saha believed that he has got his man diving to his left. The on-field umpires referred it to the third umpire with soft signal in India's favour. However, the replay shows that the ball had hit the bat and then the ground before Saha took the catch. Bavuma survives. SA - 20/2 in 5 overs

16:14 (IST)11 Oct 2019
Umesh strikes again!

Umesh Yadav shines on his comeback. Dean Elgar was in two minds, whether to leave the short delivery or not. The ball takes an inside edge on to his pads and then stumps. Elgar is frustrated with himself as he departs for 6. SA - 13/2 in 3.5 overs

15:59 (IST)11 Oct 2019
Umesh strikes

Umesh Yadav strikes on comeback. Aiden Markram plays down the wrong line and it hits him on the pads in front of the wickets. Yadav takes a wicket on the second ball of the over. SA - 2/1 in 1.2 overs

15:57 (IST)11 Oct 2019
Second innings underway

Ishant Sharma opens the bowling for India. Just two runs Dean Elgar's bat. Umesh Yadav opens the bowling from the other end. SA - 2/0 in 1 over
