LIVE IND vs SA: Kohli after game

Virat Kohli | Player of the Match: It was a big game, probably playing the toughest team in the tournament. There was a motivation to do well. Because it happened on my birthday, it becomes special and the people made it more special for me. I did wake up with that excitement that today is not just another game. People from the outside look at the game in a bit of a different way. When the openers start well, it feels it is a belter and everyone has to play that way. But as the ball got older, the conditions slowed down drastically. The message was clear, keep batting around me. I was happy from that perspective. Once we got more than 315, we knew that we were above par. I’m enjoying myself, playing cricket all over again, that is more important to me than phases. I’m just happy that God has blessed me with that enjoyment. I’m just happy that I’m being able to do what I have done over all these years. (On Sachin's message) It is all too much for me to take in now, to equal my hero’s record is something special for me. He is perfection when it comes to batting. It’s a very emotional moment for me. I know where I come from, I know the days I have watched him on TV. Just to get that appreciation from him means a lot to me.

India dominating the proceedings here. 16 off the over.

IND vs SA LIVE Updates: Expensive start for Jansen

Marco Jansen bowls the second over of the innings. Leading edge flies to third man again as Rohit collects a single. Jansen then bowls a wide down leg to Shubman. Oh, then a big wide down leg side. Quinton de Kock could not do anything about it. Shocker of a wide. Then, another wide as Jansen bowls this one to the slips. 

What's happening to him here. Much better second ball finally as Gill pushes it to off side for no run. Gill starts the innings with a beautiful cover drive. Four. And another wide for Jansen. He is struggling. He has already bowled seven balls in the over. Fifth ball on the legs and Shubman clips it to on side for second boundary of the over. 17 off the over.

India Vs South Africa LIVE: Rohit starts with four

The first ball from Ngidi on the money. Driving Rohit on the front foot. Hit the middle of the bat. It is still very cloudy in the middle, so it should help the seamers. Second ball seams away. Left by Rohit. Rohit playes three dots and then sligly steps down to play an inside out shot over the covers for the first boundary of the day. Good comeback by Ngidi. Right at the stumps. Rohit defends it. Thick outside edge on the last ball but Rohit is safe as it travels to third man on one bounce.

IND vs SA LIVE Updates: Ptch report

It looks like a better surface when compared to the last game, that pitch had a lot more spots. It did turn a bit, but it got better under dew. This pitch has a lot of spots at one end, not a lot from the other end. It does look slow, there will not be a lot of bounce, the batters need to adjust to this surface. It has got a nice tan and there is some grass on the surface. Both teams have got their bases covered. A bat-first track.
