They have avoided the follow-on, though.

Elgar drop very costly for the hosts. Pitch has completely flattened out now.

Pandya is smashing the SA attack to all parts.

He is making big inroads into the lead.

Some ordinary bowling atm.

Steyn is off the ground injured. When was the last time he finished a test?

Well Elgar has cost his side a lot of runs.

SA would probably have had a 150 plus lead without his drop and maybe would have avoided a Steyn injury.

So the lead is a lot less than it looked. Rabada bowled well and economically.

Not disputing that. When the luck is running your way, you must take advantage.

^^ Fair enough.

Meanwhile, the talking heads are speculating that Steyn may be out of the series.

Geez, what a knock from Pandya to get the Bannies a helluva lot closer to the SAffer total than I expected. The last I looked India was 7-100.

And Stain has done a Koo, has he?

Panda could be a bit special, as long as he keeps his head and continues to care about test cricket.

The problem for SA is that it is a long time since Steyn has finished a test. More often than that he is out of it by day three, which leaves SA's attack depleted. Maybe they will nurse up to Pollock's record, or maybe they will have to face reality.

Had Elgar caught Pandya early though, the attack would have been spared a lot more extra time on the field. The workload ahead of the Aussie tests must be a concern for them.

A question for Taipan, I keep hearing about the potential of Lungi Ngidi as the next big fast bowling thing for SA. I know he has had some injury issues but how do you rate him?

He's quick and seems to be injury free this season. His second name is True-man which I guess is an omen of sorts. Horrie will be glad to know that he went to the most expensive school in the country.

Ha, looked it up; the fees certainly come with deep pockets.

The Hilton College fees for 2017 are R253 660 per annum.
