Pitch cracks broadened and became unplayable during day 3 at wanderers and hence match officials had to call the day off.

The play was finished for the day as umpires and match officials decided to call it off for the day.

No choice has yet been reported about whether the diversion – which still has two days remaining – will continue on Saturday.

India opener Murali Vijay struck five times in during the first batting session alone.Chiefs Faf du Plessis and Virat Kohli were then assembled into a conference with ref Andy Pycroft as per International Cricket Council controls.

Those ICC decides express that play can continue if the skippers concur yet in the event that not, the umpires – Pakistan’s Aleem Dar and England’s Ian Gould – and ref must choose whether it is conceivable to enhance the playing conditions adequately for play to continue.

On the off chance that that isn’t viewed as feasible, the match can be surrendered.

Just three batsmen have so far achieved 50 in the match, with South Africa requiring further 224 keeps running for triumph with nine wickets remaining.
