IND vs SA 2nd Test: Johannesburg weather report – Rain and Dean Elgar are what stand between India and a historic series win in South Africa. India need eight wickets to win on Day 4 and South Africa 122, it is drizzling in Johannesburg and that could be the factor. Follow India vs South Africa Live Updates on InsideSport.IN.

India set a record 240-run target for South Africa after being bowled out for 266 in the second innings. However, Dean Elgar’s gutsy 46 helped the hosts see off the day and survive an onslaught from Indian pacers.

On Day 4, the equation is simple – India need 8 wickets and South Africa need 122 runs. If India get eight wickets, they will win their maiden Test series in South Africa. For the hosts, they will level the series and play the decider in Newlands.
