Cricket India :West Indies put up a great performance on the third morning of the Test match, picking up four wickets while giving up only 65 runs, continuing their comeback track. With six wickets remaining, South Africa currently has a 138 run lead.

                       The day’s first wicket, Dean Elgar, who directed a wide ball from Kyle Mayers straight to gully, set the tone for the rest of the innings. At the same pitch, Mayers struck again, this time bowling Tony de Zorzi off an inside edge.

West Indies also eliminated Aiden Markram after making an error in a lbw review. On the verge of drinks, Kemar Roach produced a jaffa that straightened in the fourth stump channel and caught Markram’s edge. South Africa appeared to be on the mend in the second hour, when Temba Bavuma counterattacked and scored boundaries against Roach and Alzarri Joseph. However, the session ended in favour of West Indies when Raymon Reifer’s bowling struck Ryan Rickelton in the behind.
