The Proteas, chasing 58 to win the Test and series, are 19/0 at tea.

Alviro Petersen (14*) and Graeme Smith (5*) are at the crease.

Earlier, needing three wickets to wrap up India's second innings, the Proteas obliged after lunch and bundled them out for 223 at Kingsmead on Monday, leaving South Africa 58 runs to win in the second Test and series.

The only Indian batsman to offer any resistance was Ajinkya Rahane who bludgeoned his way to 96. He was eventually clean-bowled by Vernon Philander just short of a maiden century playing in only his third Test.
