Cape Town - A limpet-like knock from Protea captain, Hashim Amla, kept the Indian bowlers at bay and gave the visitors a slim chance of forcing a draw in the fourth Test match in Delhi.

Amla ended the day on 23 off 207 balls, showing incredible powers of concentration as he defended for over four hours.

He found a two willing partners, first in Temba Bavuma who scored 34 off 117 balls, and then AB de Villiers, who ended the day on 11 off 91.

Earlier in the day, India had declared on 267 for 5, leaving the Proteas a monumental target of 481.

Ajinkya Rahane, who scored an undefeated century and captain Virat Kohil (88), ensured the Proteas had no chance of winning the match. 

The Proteas still have a monumental task ahead of them tomorrow, but will be buoyed by the steel shown by their captain.
