Coming to the 2nd India vs South Africa Test, Skipper Virat Kohli slammed his seventh double ton (254) and guided the host to 601/5 in the first innings before calling declaration. Apart from Kohli, Mayank Agarwal (108) and Ravindra Jadeja (91) made significant contributions. In the second innings, the South African top order was rattled by the duo of Mohammed Shami and Umesh Yadav. So, India have the upper hand in the match and will aim to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.
