With India tottering at 28-2, Virat Kohli and Murali Vijay got together in order to steady the ship for India.
With the stump mic amped up for this series, the fans have been treated to some interesting conversations between fielders and batsman on field.
Virat Kohli and Murali Vijay were involved in a hilarious conversation today, one that got picked up by the stump mic, wherein Kohli urged Vijay to carry on till the end of day’s play, as it could cause havoc in the South African dressing room.
Kohli was heard saying “Sham tak khelenge to unki g***d fatt jaayegi”(English transaltion: If we play until stumps, the South Africans be worried to the core)

KL Rahul was dismissed as Morkel took a stunning return catch, and Pujara had his ‘brain-fade’ moment, when he took off for a suicidal run on his first ball, ending up well short, even though the call was his.
Virat Kohli once again walked out in trying circumstances but played with intent and application to give India a fair standing in the Test match.
Vijay and Kohli decided to see off the bowling initially but ultimately settled into their own, playing their shots to keep the scoreboard ticking.
Vijay then nicked off to Keshav, after misjudging the length of the delivery.
