In the first Cricket Test at Visakhapatnam, South Africa will resume at the overnight score of 385 for eight in their first innings on Day Four today. South Africa are trailing by 117 runs with two wickets in hand.

Resuming at 39/3 on day 3 yesterday, the South Africa opener forged vital partnerships with captain Faf du Plessis (55) and wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock (111), who scored his 5th Test century, to help the visitors reach 385/8 at stumps. Ashwin claimed his 27th five-wicket haul in the longest format of the game.
