Pretoria, South Africa: The decision to rest premier batsmen Shikhar Dhawan, Suresh Raina and Rohit Sharma backfired badly as India were precariously placed at 145 for six in reply to South Africa A's first innings total of 341 at stumps on the second day of the second 'Test' here on Sunday.

Ambati Rayudu (14 batting) and Perveez Rasool (0 batting) were at the crease during close of play as the visitors need another 47 runs to reach the magic figure of 192 in order to avoid follow on.

India lost five wickets for only 50 runs after being comfortably placed at 95 for one with skipper Cheteshwar Pujara (54) well set. The moment Indian captain was dismissed by left-arm seamer Beuran Hendricks at the stroke of tea, the final session turned completely in favour of hosts.
