India continued their dominating run against South Africa on the second day of the second Test in Pune. After piling 601/5 (D), the seamers took the charge and reduced the visitors to 36/3 at stumps. South Africa now trail by 565.

Earlier, Ajinkya Rahane and Virat Kohli continued the innings on the second day. Rahane scored a half-century before falling to Keshav Maharaj but Kohli continued his brilliant form. The Indian skipper struck a career-best score of 254*. This was Kohli’s seventh double century in Test cricket, most by any Indian batsman. With this, he also went past the 7000-run mark in the format.

Kohli was joined by Ravindra Jadeja who stitched a partnership of 225 for the 5th wicket with the captain missed out on a ton by 9 runs.

Later, Umesh Yadav struck early and removed Aiden Markram and Dean Elgar to leave Proteas tottering at 13/2. While Yadav scalped a couple, Mohammad Shami picked up a wicket on the very first delivery of his spell after Temba Bavuma was caught behind.
