South Africa have deadbatted 72 overs for 72 runs for the loss of their openers. Some fans at the Kotla are chanting AB, AB as de Villiers walks off the field with Hashim Amla. It's been an immense performance from South Africa today, they have shown vast reserves of patience and sheer bloody mindedness in blocking.
India have bowled everything at them but only managed to prise out Elgar and Bavuma, who also played his part in the blockathon. Today's cricket has not been for everyone, but it's offered a most unique type of entertainment.

Shoaib: "Patience Patience Patience Patience.... Aaaarrghhhh .... I will become the patient by watching this"

Riyaz Ahmed: "That boundary from ABD was to match 72 for 72 :)"

Yusuf: "This is painful to watch but it is Test Cricket at its best. SA are not giving up, they are ready to play a very long innings, this is what they need to show, fight till the last ball."

Rakesh: "Test Cricket at its best! This is what we wan to see in T20 times."

Amla 23 off 207 balls, AB 11 off 91 balls. How long can they continue tomorrow? India need only eight wickets. I'll be back tomorrow morning for a fifth day, imagine that! Thank you for all your emails today, they kept me going! And thanks for reading. Cheers.
