Mohammed Shami struck thrice in a fierce opening spell while Umesh Yadav chipped in with two of his own. Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin picked up one each as South Africa's slump continued. Earlier, Umesh Yadav took three wickets and found support in Shami, Jadeja and debutant Shahbaz Nadeem, who picked two wickets each, as India bowled out South Africa cheaply in the first innings. Nadeem finished his first Test innings with figures of 2-22. (SCORECARD)
