South Africa was 82 without loss at stumps after Dale Steyn ripped through India to bowl the tourists out for 334 on the second day of the second test on Friday. (Scorecard)

Steyn bowled two searing spells for his six wickets to topple India from a commanding 198-1 in its first innings. Following a long rain delay in the morning, South Africa's spearhead took three wickets in 10 balls when play resumed and another three in eight deliveries after tea to pull India back from a big total.  (Highlights)

Ajinkya Rahane resisted with 51 not out but Steyn ensured Cheteshwar Pujara (70) and Murali Vijay (97) didn't continue their dominance from the first day. (Day 2: In pics)
