Shaun Pollock hit a brilliant unbeaten 113 as South Africa batted throughout day three of the controversial non-ICC Test match.

Earlier, with Indian captain Rahul Dravid looking totally disinterested in field placings, Jacques Kallis hit a fluent 110 as the India bowlers' weekend suffering went on.

The tourists intially faultered when they strangely opted not to take the new ball at the start of the third day.

By the time they did, Lance Klusener had got in and was playing some deft shots either side of the wicket.

Javagal Srinath finally sent him back to the pavilion for 33 when the big left-hander tried to run a ball down to third man and was easily caught at second slip.

Yorked

The stand had been worth 60, and Kallis and Mark Boucher then put on 74 for the sixth wicket before both fell in the space of five balls.

First Kallis, after nearly five hours at the crease, was yorked by Anil Kumble.

Then Boucher played a loose shot to Ashish Nehra, to be bowled for 19.

Nicky Boje made 20 before he was stumped off the bowling of Harbhajan Singh then Makhaya Ntini entered the fray.

South Africa's number 10 helped his captain - who hit seven sixes - put on an unbeaten 121 for the ninth wicket until rain brought the punishment to an end.


South Africa: Shaun Pollock (capt), Herschelle Gibbs, Gary Kirsten, Jacques Kallis, Neil McKenzie, Jacques Rudolph, Lance Klusener, Mark Boucher (wkt), Nicky Boje, Makhaya Ntini, Nantie Hayward.

India: Rahul Dravid (capt), Shiv Sunder Das, Connor Williams, Sachin Tendulkar, Deep Dasgupta (wkt), VVS Laxman, Venkatesh Prasad, Harbhajan Singh, Anil Kumble, Javagal Srinath, Ashish Nehra.
