If there ever was any hope for South Africa to bounce back or stay alive in the series, it is fair to say that Day 2 in Pune has well and truly shut it down. After Kohli and Jadeja piled misery on the Proteas bowlers, Umesh Yadav ran through their openers to diminish all hope for the visitors.

Will the real Keshav Maharaj please stand up?

Rohit Sharma and Mayank Agarwal might have already scored two centuries each in the series already, but on his way to a third consecutive century of the series is South Africa’s Keshav Maharaj and right now, there’s nobody in the world who can stop him from doing so, not even himself.
