IND VS SA 3rd Test Cricket Live Score

Newlands Ground in Cape Town is witnessing one of the finest test matches. Its India v South Africa and we are now in the 4th day’s play but still the two teams are even. We still do not know which team will win.

The game is currently poised on the razor’s edge and how South Africa bat in the first session on the fourth day will go a long way in deciding which way the game turns. There was nothing between the two teams in the first innings and with the South Africans getting to 52/2, it could still be anybody’s game.

On the fourth day of the India v South Africa third Test, there are many possibilities. One, India can look to run through the South African batting, in much like the same manner as they had done to India at the same venue four years ago. A score of 200 all out will mean that the Indians will have enough time to get to the target with Dale Steyn being the one man between them and the 2-1 series win.

While the possibility of a draw cannot be ruled out, India have an edge over South Africa in this final test match. The match will start at 1330 hrs IST and you all can watch the live cricket match on TEN Cricket. We believe that Harbhajan will turn around this match for India. He is bowling well and I am sure Harbhajan will remove the South African top order.

Yesterday was a mix day for India. Tendulkar and Gambhir started off well but then Gambhir missed his century. He got out on 92. Spinner Harris must be very happy to take his prized wicket. Laxman was very unlucky to get run out when he looked good with the bat. However, man of day 3 was Sachin Tendulkar.

He scored his 51st century at Cape Town. He made sure that India at least make the same score as South Africa. He played great cricket shots and his partner Harbhajan Singh gave him a good company. Harbhajan too batted well and scored 40 runs for his team. He always scores when it is required the most. If you missed Tendulkar’s century do watch the highlights of India v South Africa on TEN Cricket sports channel.

If South Africa can get to 250, then the Indians will find it difficult to chase down the target on a fifth day track against the likes of Steyn and Harris.

The other option for South Africa is to bat the day and score 325 and ask India to bat 90 overs on the last day. If one were to look at the run-rates in the game, it sure will be difficult for the Indians to chase down that total but they can look to bat out the fifth day for the game to end in a draw.

The question is who will blink first tomorrow.

Its bright a sunny in Cape Town and the temperature is roughly 25 degree Celsius. Just the right conditions to play full day of cricket. South Africa have already lost their captain and night watchman Harris.

Amla is batting on 0 and Petersen is not out on 22. The live cricket score of India v SA is 52/2. They have already taken a lead of 50 runs and India will be looking to wrap up this SA side at a score of not more than 250. Lets all watch TEN Cricket Live and see how the match progresses.
