The Day 4 of 3rd Test, most probably will be the final day of the three match Test series, and yet we are far away from guessing which side the match is heading. That’s the quality of Test cricket this series has displayed throughout. Although India started well with a convincing win in Centurion, they later suffered a huge defeat by 7-wickets in the second Test at Johannesburg, resulting in series being levelled at 1-1.

The series decider in Cape Town has had some quick and exciting action on first three days. India posted a total of 223 in 77.3 overs in the first innings, due to good handful of runs from Kohli and Pujara. South Africa’s batting had similar fate as India, as Dean Elgar’s side were bundled out on 210 in 76.3 overs, handing 13-runs lead to visitor in first innings.

Rishabh Pant’s 100 in the second inning guided team to a total of 198 setting up a target of 212 runs for Proteas. South Africa, while chasing the final target have already lost two wickets-in the form of Aiden Markram (16 off 22) and skipper Dean Elgar by Shami and Bumrah, respectively. The day witnessed some crucial moments, from Pant’s incredible century knock to Indian players allegedly furious over controversial DRS technology.

Friday is going to be a fabulous day in Test cricket, and weather will be vital as cricket fans would not like any kind of hindrance in the results. As per weather forecast, there is no prediction of rain and its going to sunny day with around 60% of humidity.

However, it does not seem like the match will go for whole day looking at the equation right now. Fans will surely get to watch one of the best battle between two top notch Test teams, and if India is able to give some blow to hosts they have a golden chance to script a glorious chapter in Indian Test cricket. But South Africa, with 111 runs short of target and 8-wickets in hand , are looking strong and will be hoping to upset visitors’ dream of winning their first-ever Test series in the country.
