India vs South Africa LIVE: Shami says targeting ‘400 Runs lead’- India pace spearhead Mohd Shami feels that India need at least 375-400 runs lead to win the 1st Test at SuperSport Park, Centurion. India would look to make at least 200 or more runs after managing a lead of 146 on Day 3. Follow IND vs SA live updates on InsideSport.IN

“Two days are left in the Test match, I feel we should be batting the maximum amount of time tomorrow. If we score around 250 runs and set a target of about 400 runs for South Africa we can then allow South Africa to bat for four sessions. But for that we need at least 350 or 400 odd runs,” said Shami.
