India are well in control of the third and final Test against South Africa, with Umesh Yadav strking early on day three by dismissing Proteas skipper Faf Du Plessis in just the sixth over.

A beauty from Yadav as it takes the top of the off stump of Du Plessis. The Proteas leader is out first-ball, the ball just moving away after pitching and that does the job for India.

It is yet more woe for the tourists after India posted a mammoth 497 in the first innings. They dealt early blows to South Africa’s reply, removing openers Dean Elgar and Quinton de Kock in the first two overs. South Africa once again find themselves looking up at a massive first innings total while having lost early wickets.

Zubayr Hamza, playing his first match of the series, is now in at bat along with Temba Bavuma. For India, Mohammed Shami and Yadav will look to get more gains with the new ball.

Their blistering start towards the end of day two was cut short due to bad light but the early wickets would encourage them to go out and cause more damage.
