Watch India Cricket Live Online: First Test Vs. South Africa, Day 5

Watch India cricket live online as the team tries to pull out of its early month woes against South Africa and end its first Test with a stunning upset win.

The visiting Indian team goes into the fifth and final day of the first Test against South Africa with a huge advantage. After giving the hosts the massive target of 458 on the fourth day, South Africa responded by reaching 138 for 2, and now needs 319 on its final day to win. The result so far is quite a shock to many, especially after India faltered in the series of One-Day International matches with South Africa earlier this month.

The teams will return for day 5 of the Test series on Sunday at 8:30 GMT.

The first Test is even more surprising given South Africa’s streak of 13 consecutive series wins, combined with an Indian squad that has had trouble with Test series on the road, with a losing streak that now stretches back two years.

Fans who watch the India cricket match vs. South Africa live online may get to see the first big win of the post-Sachin Tendulkar era for India. The veteran of more than two decades retired last month following a contest against West Indies, leaving India to find is identity.

A win against South Africa would be a huge step forward for what is still a relatively inexperienced Test squad. For many Indian players — including Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma — the contest against South Africa is their first action as part of the Test team.

Despite trailing India by 319, South Africa remains defiant.

“We are drawing on past experiences and we believe we can do it. We’ve shown resilience, we batted a whole day before,” said assistant coach Adrian Birrell. “This team has done remarkable things in the past and we get a bit of a lift from that. It would be a remarkable thing if we can do it again.”
