73.3 Mohammed Shami to Lungi Ngidi

OUT! Caught (Sub). NOT OUT changed by umpire to OUT after REFERRAL. Mohammed Shami to Lungi Ngidi. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, missed to wicketkeeper. Unbelievable, Elgar is left stranded on 86 as Ngidi tries to defend the ball and the Indian players appeal for it enthusiastically. It's given not out on the field but India review the decision and there's a fine outside edge through to the keeper. Ngidi departs for four and India have won this Test match! What a brilliant day of cricket we have witnessed here from a neutral perspective. Unfortunately for South Africa, their hard work at the start of the day was unravelled as the pitch took hold and the bowlers found their line and lengths. It was too difficult for the new batsman to play themselves in and a collapse has left them 63 runs short of India. It really has been an entertaining Test match here at the Wanderers, albeit perhaps one surrounded with controversy, a result was reached an in an entertaining fashion nonetheless. In a slight piece of irony, Elgar is left standing, carrying his bat through the most difficult of conditions after being hit in the helmet in a moment that brought a premature end to yesterday's play. The final wicket gave Shami his five-for, in a scintillating spell of bowling which helped swing this game back in their favour and ultimately hand India victory.
