India v Proteas: Live Scorecard

Kyle Abbot struck early on the fourth morning, when he trapped Indian captain, Virat Kohli leg before wicket for 88 to a ball that kept low.

Wriddhiman Saha joined Ajinkya Rahane (68 not out) as India looked to extend their lead and afford Rahane the chance of a second consecutive century.

Rahane duly obliged, scoring his century off 206 balls with 8 fours and 3 sixes at which point Kohli declared.
