A fighting fifty from Temba Bavuma helped South Africa extend their lead by 200 and stop the flurry of wickets. At tea on Day 3, the hosts reached 145 after having lost five wickets. Currently, they have a lead of 214 runs.

Even though the session did not have anything for the Caribbean bowlers, but they continued bowling on a consistent line and length, which ultimately helped them scalp the wicket of Heinrich Klaasen.
