Internet Desk: Heavy rain washed out the two sessions on day three of the first cricket Test between South Africa and India at the Newlands Cricket Stadium in Cape Town today. There was a threat that heavy rain might ruin the day’s play and the rain arrived early in the morning. The force of the rain rose with each passing hour.

As off now there is gulf of water all across the Newlands' outfield and it is still raining and there might be no game today.

Earlier, Indian team arrived at the stadium for a while but had left for their hotel again as it was still raining. After an hour again the team arrived at the stadium. Coach Ravi Shastri went inside the ground for an inspection and he had a chat with chief curator Evan too.

The match hangs in balance, meanwhile. On day one, South Africa were bowled out for 286 runs in the first innings with Bhuvneshwar Kumar taking 4/87. India were reduced to 28/3 at stumps.

Hardik Pandya single-handedly kept his side in contention with 93 runs off 95 balls and then took 2-17 as well.

Dale Steyn, on his comeback to Test cricket, suffered a heartbreaking heel injury whilst bowling during the Indian first innings. He has been ruled out of the remainder of this Test, and the series as a result

On day two, India finished with 209 runs in their first innings, surrendering a 77-run lead. South Africa were 65/2 at stumps with an overall lead of 142 runs.
