Nagpur - South Africa, set a victory target of 310 runs, were 32/2 in their second innings at stumps on the second day of the third Test against India in Nagpur on Thursday.

As it happened: India v South Africa, Day 2

Dean Elgar was unbeaten on 10 and skipper Hashim Amla was on three, with the tourists still 278 runs away from a win with eight wickets in hand.

Earlier, South Africa were bowled out for 79 runs in their first innings and India were dismissed for 173 in their second knock.
