Today, Ravindra Jadeja missed his well-deserved century by just nine runs when team India has declared the first innings on 601 runs after his wicket. Jadeja and Kohli added 150 plus runs for the fifth wicket. Virat Kohli scored his 7th test double hundred. During this inning, Jadeja has been received an official warning for running on the wicket. After that, Jadeja leaves the crease most funnily.
Mayank Agarwal also scored his 2nd test century while Chetestwar Puajra and Ajinkya Rahane scored the fifties. India is in good control in the second test after the end of day 2. South Africa have lost three wickets on 36 runs at the end of day 2.

After the end of day two, Ajinkya Rahne said, “The way we batted (took us to a score in excess of 600). There was assistance for fast bowlers, Mayank batted well. It was important to play that one hour really well in the morning. We were thinking about 500+. The manner in which Virat and Jaddu batted, it looked so easy from the outside. I don’t think it’s a 600+ wicket; it’s a 450-500 runs wicket. We (himself and Kohli) enjoy each others’ company. We communicate really well whenever we bat together. We knew we were one batsman short, and we had to get that partnership going.”
“That partnership between us was really important. Pretty pleasant here, Vizag was really hot. Bowlers will really enjoy. If we can bowl in the right areas, we’ll win by a good margin. Fast bowlers have good assistance if they bowl in the right areas. The ball is turning, Ashwin and Jadeja can bowl on any track.”
