before rain forced the game to go into a reserve day at the Greenfield
International Stadium on Wednesday.
The right-hander, who hit a century in the series opener,
struck an unbeaten 60 off 70 balls, with good support coming from Matthew

as the tourists reached 137 for one when the wet weather prematurely ended
The South Africans had faced 25 overs at that stage, with

But the rain again returned with the Asian side, already 3-0
up in the five-match series, on 56 for one in 7.4 overs.
The solitary wicket was claimed by Anrich Nortje (1/26),
while senior India star Shikhar Dhawan was at the crease unbeaten on 34.
The two teams will return to play the remaining 17.2 overs
tomorrow with the home side needing a further 137 and the South Africans nine
