India vs South Africa Live Score, 3rd Test, Day 4: India 2 wickets away from clean sweep in Ranchi | cricket

Live score and updates: It was a dominant performance by India on Day 3 and now they need just two wickets to complete a whitewash over South Africa. Mohammed Shami ripped through their middle order and displayed the pedigree of the Indian seamers. 16 South African wickets fell on day three as Virat Kohli made South Africa follow-on in consecutive Tests for the first time since 2002. Not only this, a concussion substitute was required for the third time in Test history after Dean Elgar ducked into a Umesh Yadav bumper and was struck just above the ear. India could wrap up the proceedings in just one over on Day 4 and the misery would be complete for the Proteas and would end a real nightmare for them.

Umesh speaks

“If you have pace and bounce, you can be successful at home. Earlier they said as fast bowlers, you’ve to just be ready for reverse swing after the new ball’s shine is done, to allow spinners to come in. But with Shami, Jasprit and I, we plan and we know how we have to go about bowling. All of us have pace. I’m happy to see our fast bowlers are doing what overseas pacers are doing. It gives us wings,” Umesh on Star Sports.

Day 3 recap

India enforced follow-on Day 3 and the bowlers vindicated this decision in the first 10 minutes by slicing through the South Africa top order. To pile on the misery, Dean Elgar was hit on the head by a Umesh Yadav bumper and had to be taken to the hospital. He was substituted by Theunis de Bruyn. India now need only a couple of wickets to complete the formality and bag the series 3-0 and complete their first-ever clean sweep of South Africa in a Test series.
