India have been pretty dominant in this first Test of the three-match series in Vizag. They handed a target of 395 runs to the Proteas and reduced them to 7-/8 in the pursuit before Senuran Muthusamy and Dane Piedt showed some resistance.
South Africa went into lunch on Day 5 at 117/8. Earlier, Rohit Sharma struck two centuries in the match while Mayank Agarwal notched his maiden Test double hundred.
