Coming out with a strong response in pursuit of a challenging 240-run target, South Africa ended day three of the second Test against India at 118 for two, Wednesday. Skipper Dean Elgar (46), who took many a blow on his body, and Rassie van der Dussen (11) will resume the home chase on Thursday morning. They need 122 more runs to level the series.

India removed opener Aiden Markram (34) and Keegan Petersen (28) but the home batters ensured there were no more setbacks after that.
