SA v IND highlights today – Third freedom test day three from The Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg (South Africa) Friday 26th January 2018. Both teams scored almost equal runs in their first innings, now it could be a huge test for South Africa if India will reach above 150 in their second innings. But I don’t think the pitch will remain difficult for batsmen at day four or five. As time goes on the pitch will become batting friendly. Till day two India scored 49 runs with one wicket down in 17 overs which is a very good start for them.
India won the toss and elected to bat.
