India captain Virat Kohli sacked for 29 of 143 balls in Day 3 Cape Town Test. This ended a 94-run game between the two batsmen as India was closing in on a 200-run lead. On the other hand, every run the southpaw scored in his innings looked good.
Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pants Added 72 runs before lunch break and looks good to continue working together. However, South Africa captain Dean Elgar brought back Lungi Njidi, who fed him a few balls from outside the stump. Bowling on the sixth stump line, Ngidi once again brought a wide drive from Kohli, this time he edged the ball, only for Aiden Markram to complete a terrific catch. After Kohli chipped the ball, the ball rose above, and Markram used his soft hands to make sure he put it gently into the pocket.
