Port Elizabeth: Jacques Kallis made an unbeaten 84 as South Africa moved into a commanding position on the third day of the second Test against India at St George's Park on Sunday.

"We've played ourselves into a good position," South African captain Shaun Pollock said. He revealed he and Kallis had accepted an offer to go off for bad light because a shadow under one grandstand made batting difficult against the pace bowlers despite the floodlights being switched on during the last 40 minutes of play on an overcast, blustery day. Pollock said South Africa would continue batting on Monday though he was not sure what target he wanted to set the Indians. "Its about leaving enough time to bowl them out," he said. Pollock, who took five wickets in the Indians' first innings, said the pitch was not easy for batsmen. "The bounce is a little bit variable and the new ball does quite a bit. It's not getting any easier."
