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.

As many as 32 wickets have fallen so far over two days on the dusty, deteriorating pitch at the VCA stadium.

South Africa need a win to level the four-match series after losing the first Test in Mohali by 108 runs. The rain-hit second game in Bangalore was drawn.
