South Africa have made good progress in the first session on Day 2 of the third and final cricket test match against India at Newlands in Cape Town.

It was a pretty even contest between bat and ball. The Proteas, who dismissed the visitors for 223 late Tuesday afternoon, resumed their first innings on 17 for the loss of one wicket.

Opening batsman Aiden Markram was dismissed for 8 and nightwatchman Keshav Maharaj for 25, but they did not lose any more wickets. South Africa was on 100 for the loss of three wickets, still trailing by 123 runs.
