The final frontier remains unconquered for India. Virat Kohli and co. missed a huge opportunity of ending their winless series-streak on South African soil; but this series may also mark a transition period for India, especially in their batting lineup.

IND vs SA Live Updates: Johannesburg 2018-Johannesburg 2022, what a run!
It all began in Johannesburg in 2018 for the Virat Kohli-led Test side. And it seems the transition is around the corner this time. It was a splendid run for the Indian team which saw the side win two Test series in Australia and enjoy an impeccable home record.
All good things must come to an end, though. Some big changes are quite likely ahead of the beginning of India's home season, which starts in February when the side takes on Sri Lanka.

India vs South Africa Live Updates: What a remarkable turnaround!
This has been a remarkable turnaround for South Africa. Everything had been in India's favour even before a ball was being bowled in this series. The Proteas had lost their in-form pacer to injury, endured a mid-series retirement of one of their senior batters but Elgar's men remained undeterred.
India will rue the missed opportunity here.
Jan 14, 2022 04:54 PM IST
IND vs SA Live Score: SA 190/3

The second session is about to begin in Cape Town. South Africa are on the verge of a fairly straightforward win here unless the Indian bowlers produce a miraculous comeback.

IND vs SA 3rd Test Live: SA 171/3 at Lunch
South Africa comfortably ahead in this game so far. Keegan Petersen's dismissal did put some pressure on the Proteas but Temba Bavuma and Rassie van der Dussen successfully see off the challenging phase in the first session.
India need a miracle,

India vs South Africa Live Score: India review for LBW
And it's umpire's call. The ball is clipping the stumps but only just. Marais Erasmus doesn't raise the finger and Rassie van der Dussen survives. Shardul pitches it fuller of a good length and Rassie misses the line. Fortunately, he stays at the crease.
SA 170/3. Target 212
Jan 14, 2022 03:54 PM IST

India vs South Africa Live Updates: Another four!
That's one for the photographers. A glorious cover drive from Temba Bavuma to end Bumrah's over. 9 runs off this over and it would've done a world of good for the Proteas at this point.

Jan 14, 2022 03:45 PM IST
India vs South Africa Live: Much-needed boundary for SA

Jan 14, 2022 03:42 PM IST
IND vs SA Live Updates: Is it too early for the C word?
South Africa are still pretty much in command but one cannot help but think if the Proteas – as their history suggests – would crumble under the pressure. Another maiden from Thakur.

Jan 14, 2022 03:38 PM IST
India vs South Africa Live Updates: Runs drying up since the wicket
Runs were flowing rather freely till the dismissal of Keegan. Indian players maintaining some pressure on the field and the lines have been much, much better from Shami since the breakthrough.

Jan 14, 2022 03:26 PM IST
India vs South Africa Live Updates: Almost another!
On length, this delivery deviates sharply into Temba Bavuma and almost kisses past the off-stump! End of a successful over.

Jan 14, 2022 03:20 PM IST
IND vs SA Live Score: WICKET!
Shardul breaks the partnership. Petersen departs on 82. Petersen plays with soft hands on backfoot as he aims to get on top of a back-of-a-length delivery, but a big inside-edge deflects onto the stumps.
Jan 14, 2022 03:20 PM IST
IND vs SA Live Updates: Agree?
Jan 14, 2022 03:15 PM IST

Jan 14, 2022 03:02 PM IST
India vs South Africa Live Score: Drinks break!
South Africa firmly ahead. The first hour was very crucial to India's chances and Bumrah had created the opportunity when he forced an outside edge off Keegan Petersen, but Pujara failed to grasp the ball at first slip. Shardul Thakur is expected to come into the attack after the break. Will there be a twist in the tale?
Jan 14, 2022 02:57 PM IST
India vs South Africa Live Updates: Easy runs
Petersen with a solid cover drive on a loose delivery outside off, and Bumrah then chases the right-hander's pads again. A nice flick of the wrist for a couple through deep midwicket. India losing the plot here.

Jan 14, 2022 02:50 PM IST
India vs South Africa Live: Salt on the wounds
Petersen flicks the very next delivery after the dropped catch for three runs through deep midwicket. That's just cruel for Jasprit Bumrah at this stage.
Jan 14, 2022 02:46 PM IST
India vs South Africa Live Updates: DROPPED!
Oh Pujara, what have you done? That was a regulation catch at first slip but Pujara has fumbled it badly. Pitched perfectly by Bumrah as he draws Petersen to play front-foot defence, but the ball finds a thick outside edge.
Kohli couldn't believe it and Pujara closes his eyes in frustration.
SA 129/2. Target 212
Jan 14, 2022 02:42 PM IST
IND vs SA Live Updates: Petersen continues with solid shots
First change in bowling as Umesh Yadav replaces Mohammed Shami. He pitches too short and wide on the second ball and Petersen says thank you very much. Another four as SA inch closer to the target.
SA 126/2. Target 212
Jan 14, 2022 02:40 PM IST
India vs South Africa 3rd Test Live: Wrong lines
Both batters stealing easy singles with the deliveries coming onto the pads. Maybe chasing for a dream ball is not the solution when moving it away from the right-handers could potentially reap rewards.

Jan 14, 2022 02:36 PM IST
India vs South Africa Live Updates: Sledging continues..
The chirping continues in the middle with Virat Kohli sledging Rassie van der Dussen.
"You go after a guy who is 5 years younger than you in last Test," Kohli tells Rassie, referring to the South African sledging Rishabh Pant in the second Test in Johannesburg.
Jan 14, 2022 02:31 PM IST
India vs South Africa Live Updates: Review lost
India have lost their review for a caught-behind. The ultra-edge shows that the ball had hit the ground at the same time when the ball passed through the bat, which probably led the Indian fielders to think that there was a genuine edge.
Jan 14, 2022 02:27 PM IST
IND vs SA Live Updates: It certainly is!
Jan 14, 2022 02:24 PM IST
India vs South Africa Live Score: SA 93 runs away
Not a good start from India. The first over from Bumrah had indicated that the movement could trouble the SA batters, but both – Bumrah and Shami – have hardly exploited that so far.
Jan 14, 2022 02:19 PM IST
India vs South Africa Live Updates: Bowling at stumps too often..
Indian bowlers repeating the mistakes here. In search of a dream delivery, both Bumrah and Shami are wandering off their lengths a little as SA pacers are garnering easy runs through flicks and pushes at the moment.
SA 114/2. Target 212
Jan 14, 2022 02:14 PM IST
India vs South Africa Live Score: Quick runs early on
Good strategy, this from both SA batters. They are attacking the loose balls and not caving in due to the sharp movement. A couple of twos and a three to start the day as SA reach 113/2. Need 99 more runs to win.

What a ball to end the over. Pitched a little short of good length and Rassie opts to leave, but the ball comes in sharply into the right-hander and hits his thigh.
SA 101/2. Target 212
Jan 14, 2022 01:59 PM IST
IND vs SA Live Score: Players return for Day 4
Rassie van der Dussen takes the crease with Keegan Petersen. Bumrah resumes his over.
Jan 14, 2022 01:57 PM IST
India vs South Africa Live Updates: Ready for action on Day 4
The equation is quite simple. India need eight wickets and they need to create pressure from ball one. Keegan should be aiming to continue with the similar momentum and remain undeterred with the dismissal of Elgar, as South Africa are still in command of the game.
Jan 14, 2022 01:49 PM IST
IND vs SA: Pitch report for Day 4
“There are more cracks on the pitch. Indian bowlers should try to bowl a bit fuller of the length today. Off-spin could also be key for India. I believe India can win today,” says Sunil Gavaskar.

India vs South Africa 3rd Test Live: STAT
India have never lost a Test under Kohli's captaincy when the target was more than 139.
Could this be the day when the streak breaks?
Jan 14, 2022 01:42 PM IST
IND vs SA Live: Can India deny Proteas?
It looks immensely difficult at the moment. As we mentioned before, the key is to get breakthroughs in the opening hour of Day 4, because Proteas are only 111 runs behind. Another 30-40 runs without a wicket and things could get really complicated for the Indians..

IND vs SA Live Updates: Anyway, moving away from the controversies..
South Africa are comfortably ahead of India at this point of the game, thanks to a strong stand between Keegan Petersen and Dean Elgar for the second wicket. The only way India can make a comeback is if they apply the pressure from ball one on the fourth day and grab quick wickets in the first hour of the day.

Following India's stump-mic rant, the side conceded 41 runs in the next 9 overs which can hurt the team's chances as they return to the field later today.
