After being involved in a drop off Kagiso Rabada, Hardik Pandya made amends with an athletic catch in the outfield
Innings: South Africa 335 (Markram 94, Amla 82, du Plessis 63, Ashwin 4-113, Ishant 3-46) v India
Live scorecard and ball-by-ball details
A half-century from Faf du Plessis extended South Africa’s first-innings total to 335 as India picked up the last four wickets for 66 runs on the second morning in Centurion. A rash of missed chances frustrated India somewhat during a 42-run eighth-wicket stand between du Plessis and Kagiso Rabada, but they created enough chances in an improved bowling performance for the let-offs to not cost them too much.
Ishant Sharma dismissed Rabada and du Plessis to finish with impressive figures of 3 for 46 in 22 overs. The innings ended 11 minutes from lunch when Morne Morkel lofted R Ashwin straight to deep cover to give him his fourth wicket. It left just enough time in the session for India to face one over.
Starting from Hashim Amla’s run-out dismissal late on the first evening, South Africa lost their last seven wickets for 89 runs.
