    Right, so that's that. Both sides have decided to call it off here. The match ends in a draw. 

  • 16:20 (IST)

  • 16:09 (IST)

    50! Siddesh Lad has completes his half century too and has batted well for these runs under pressure. He's hit seven boundaries and a six. Can he turn this into a big one with the tail for company?

  • 16:00 (IST)

    OUT! Unfortunately though that's the end of KS Bharat (71) and he has been castled by Keshav Maharaj, who picks up his third wicket. BP XI are 236/6. 

  • 15:57 (IST)

    There's been a flurry of big hits from KS Bharat, where he's brought up his half century and raced ahead to 71 with seven fours and five sixes to his name now. BP XI are 236/5 and that's also the century partnership for the sixth wicket. 

  • 15:54 (IST)

    Fifty! KS Bharat's really getting a move on here and he has brought up his half century with a six! And hasn't stopped since.  

  • 15:08 (IST)

    We're back after tea and the duo of Siddesh Lad and KS Bharat will look to make good use of the next couple of hours and knock of as much of the South African lead as they can. BP XI trail by 128 runs.

  • 14:15 (IST)

    OUT! Another wicket for the visitors and this time it's Karun Nair who's walking back to the hut for 19. He just seemed to have settled in but Keshav Maharaj has him caught by Klassen. BP XI: 136/5 with Siddesh Lad and KS Bharat the two new men at the crease. 

  • 14:10 (IST)

    OUT! Right after completing the well made half century, Panchal has been dismissed for 60 by Vernon Philander with Faf du Plessis taking the catch. Panchal will be disappointed with not having converted this knock into a big one. 

  • 13:56 (IST)

    Half-century for Panchal! The domestic giant has been knocking on the door of the Indian team for a while now and he shows his credentials in the longest format with a well-made 50. He will look to push on now. 

  • 13:18 (IST)

    OUT! A third wicket falls and it is Keshav Maharaj who strikes for South Africa. He removes Agarwal, who was looking on course for a half-century but has to depart for 39. New man in is Karun Nair. 

  • 11:00 (IST)

    Oh dear. Rohit's time atop the order lasts only two balls as he is dismissed by Philander. Abhimanyu Easwaran the new man in. He's also someone who opens at domestic level. 

  • 10:38 (IST)

    That's that for the first innings as South Africa have declared the innings at 279-6. Bavuma finishes the innings at 87 whereas Philander ends it at 48. India will now look to get some much-needed time in the middle. 

16:24 (IST)

Right, so that's that. Both sides have decided to call it off here. The match ends in a draw. 

16:20 (IST)

15:57 (IST)

15:54 (IST)

Fifty! KS Bharat's really getting a move on here and he has brought up his half century with a six! And hasn't stopped since.  

15:49 (IST)

This Lad and Bharat partnership are doing well to fight back and chip away at the lead. The BP XI side have crossed the 200-run mark and are cruising along. The score is at 213/5 with Bharat one run away from a half century now and this partnership for the sixth wicket now stands at 77 runs.  

15:36 (IST)

Bharat and Lad have definitely been asked to up the scoring a bit here on the third day. Both are going along at brisk pace and looking to find the boundary, and finding it too. BP XI have moved onto 196/5. 

15:26 (IST)

Some rapid runs being scored here by Lad mostly, with Bharat for company. Three boundaries in the last twelve balls have made it a 20-run spell. BP XI are 180/5 and looking to knock down the lead fast. 

15:17 (IST)

Lad and Bharat scoring some quick runs at the start of the final session on the third day. The first two overs have gone for nine runs, pushing the BP XI score to 160/5. The lead reduces to 119 runs. 

15:08 (IST)

We're back after tea and the duo of Siddesh Lad and KS Bharat will look to make good use of the next couple of hours and knock of as much of the South African lead as they can. BP XI trail by 128 runs.

14:40 (IST)

Lad's looking to do the scoring faster than Bharat so far, he's found himself two boundaries to quickly push the score over the 150-run mark. Bharat at the other end is taking his time and getting his eye in. BP XI: 151/5 

14:28 (IST)

Both Lad and Bharat are being cautious after two quick wickets fell a short while ago. It's the bowlers after this pair so the approach is understandable, especially to begin their partnership with. BP XI have moved along to 144/5 with neither batsmen in a particular hurry. 

14:15 (IST)

OUT! Another wicket for the visitors and this time it's Karun Nair who's walking back to the hut for 19. He just seemed to have settled in but Keshav Maharaj has him caught by Klassen. BP XI: 136/5 with Siddesh Lad and KS Bharat the two new men at the crease. 

14:10 (IST)

OUT! Right after completing the well made half century, Panchal has been dismissed for 60 by Vernon Philander with Faf du Plessis taking the catch. Panchal will be disappointed with not having converted this knock into a big one. 

13:56 (IST)

Half-century for Panchal! The domestic giant has been knocking on the door of the Indian team for a while now and he shows his credentials in the longest format with a well-made 50. He will look to push on now. 

13:49 (IST)

Panchal and Nair have looked solid thus far and the former is inching closer to a half-century. It would cap off what has been a decent display from him today. Let's see if he can get there soon enough. 

13:18 (IST)

OUT! A third wicket falls and it is Keshav Maharaj who strikes for South Africa. He removes Agarwal, who was looking on course for a half-century but has to depart for 39. New man in is Karun Nair. 

13:04 (IST)

Panchal and Agarwal now close to bringing up a 50-run stand. These two have done well to frustrate the South African bowlers in the second session. It bodes especially well for Agarwal, who is in the Test side for the series. 

12:47 (IST)

Panchal has been playing in an attacking manner now. He has scored 5 fours and is now on 25. He's clearly eager to impress and has been a regular performer in the domestic circuit for the past few seasons. 

12:30 (IST)

Mayank Agarwal has played a watchful knock thus far, as as partner Priyank Panchal. The two will be looking to build a good partnership now whereas the South Africans will be hungry for more wickets. 

11:37 (IST)

Another wicket departs now as Easwaran, who looked good in his brief stay at the crease, is dismissed by Kagiso Rabada. South Africa's strike bowlers have both got wickets thus far. 

11:00 (IST)

Oh dear. Rohit's time atop the order lasts only two balls as he is dismissed by Philander. Abhimanyu Easwaran the new man in. He's also someone who opens at domestic level. 

10:51 (IST)

India's innings is now underway with Mayank Agarwal and Rohit Sharma out in the middle. All eyes will be on Rohit as he is expected to open for India in the three-Test series. 

10:38 (IST)

That's that for the first innings as South Africa have declared the innings at 279-6. Bavuma finishes the innings at 87 whereas Philander ends it at 48. India will now look to get some much-needed time in the middle. 

10:28 (IST)

Philander has now zoomed into the forties after a few well-hit boundaries! At this rate he will get to his half-century before Bavuma gets his ton. Excellent batting from the lower-order batsman thus far. 

10:13 (IST)

Philander's stay at the crease has seen him hit two boundaries so far. He is a valuable lower-order bat and it will be interesting to see just how far he can go on through the day. 

10:01 (IST)

Vernon Philander has been a key ally to Bavuma so far this morning. Bavuma now races into the 80s. One of the Indian bowlers would no doubt want to get him out before he reaches the 100-run mark. 

09:45 (IST)

Bavuma gets the game off to a good quick start as he is now at 70 and the total in excess of 200. He will look to get a century before retiring, just like Makram did yesterday.

Board President's XI vs South Africa, Warm-up Match Day 3, Highlights: As it Happened

BP XI vs SA Latest Update: We're back after tea and the duo of Siddesh Lad and KS Bharat will look to make good use of the next couple of hours and knock of as much of the South African lead as they can. BP XI trail by 128 runs.

Catch all the live cricket scores from the practice match between India Board President's XI and South Africa from Vizianagaram.

Day 2 Report: Aiden Markram scored a century as South Africa scored 199-4 on the second day of the warm-up game against the Board President’s XI at Vizianagaram on Friday (September 27).

With the first day entirely washed out due to rain, the toss took place on Friday. South Africa skipper Faf du Plessis won the toss and opted to bat first.

India struck early in the innings, with Umesh Yadav – who was a late inclusion in India’s Test squad as a replacement for the injured Jasprit Bumrah – getting rid of Dean Elgar.

However it was Markram who caused the most damage, scoring runs at a decent pace and finding the boundary on a regular basis.

There were problems at the other end though, as Ishan Porel got Theunis de Bruyn dismissed leg before for 6 whereas Dharmendrasinh Jadeja trapped Zubayr Hamza plumb for 22.

Markram was joined by Temba Bavuma, with the two proceeding to build a partnership that lasted till after tea.

Bavuma was the more patient of the two whereas Markram looked to take on the bowlers more often, eventually bringing up his century after tea.

As soon as he reached 100, Markram retired and out came skipper Du Plessis, who had last played an international match for South Africa during the World Cup earlier this year.

Bavuma would bring up his half-century but Du Plessis’ stay at the crease didn’t last long as he could score only 9 runs before he too fell victim to Jadeja.

Shortly after the fourth wicket fell, play was stopped due to a rain threat and the stumps were called due to bad light.

South Africa will look to give their other batsmen some time in the middle on the third day of the game on Saturday.
