OUT! Caught & Bowled. Shahbaz Nadeem to Lungi Ngidi. Stock ball half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, back to bowler, by Nadeem. What a bizarre way for the Test Match to finish. Ngidi is gone first ball. Tossed up high and wide, tempting the big shot, and the number eleven climbs into it. He smashes a drive back down the ground, but the ball strikes his partner, Nortje, on the full, and it then lobs up kindly into the bowler's hands. Remarkable!That didn't last long at all. Just the two overs needed to finish things off. What a huge victory that is. Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane piled on the runs in the first innings to put all the pressure on to the visitors, and South Africa were unable to respond. Two disappointing batting displays have got them nowhere near India's total. A brilliant collective bowling performance dismantled the Proteas batting line up twice.So it ends 3-0 to India, and that caps off this tour between these two teams. Very one sided, but some wonderful cricket on show.

OUT! Caught. Shahbaz Nadeem to Theunis de Bruyn. Stock ball back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot driving, inside edge to wicketkeeper, by Saha. Didn't take long for India to strike. The recognised batsman, de Bruyn, is the man to go. Fantastic catch behind the stumps by Saha. The delivery doesn't get up at all. De Bruyn's feet are stuck, and he just wafts the bat out at the ball. A small inside nick, Saha keeps low, and snaps it up at ankle height. Sublime take.

Welcome to Day 4 of this third and final Test Match. Play should not last too long today. The hosts just require two more wickets to wrap up this game, and seal the 3-0 series whitewash. India have been completely dominant across these matches, and fully deserve their huge victories in each game. South Africa showed some fight to stretch it out into today, but that will not be much consolation to them, as it is still going to be an innings defeat. How long will it take for the home side to nip out these remaining two wickets?

Ravindra Jadeja to Anrich Nortje. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to silly mid off for no runs, fielded by Jadeja. India require just two more wickets for victory but the light has deteriorated in Ranchi so we will have to come back in the morning. Completing victory should be a formality for the hosts after a day on which 16 South African wickets have fallen. Zubayr Hamza's maiden Test fifty was the only real consolation for the tourists, he played a wide array of gorgeous shots but couldn't kick on to something more substantial. India's fast bowlers were excellent and the spinners provided decent support, putting them on the verge of taking the series 3-0.
