Virat Kohli-led Team India ended the first day on 28 runs for the loss of three wickets on Friday. The pace trio of Vernon Philander, Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel sent Murali Vijay, Shikhar Dhawan and India skipper Virat Kohli back to the pavilion, respectively. Vijay was the first Indian batsman to depart in the 5th over after he edged the ball to the first slip fielder. Dhawan fell after a brief cameo of 16 runs after he was foxed by a short delivery from Steyn. The top edge looped up in the air and Steyn himself took an easy return catch to send the Indian left-hander packing. Kohli also failed to read Morkel's bounce and edged the ball straight to Proteas keeper Quinton de Kock. (Scorecard)

Earlier in the day, South Africa were bundled out for 286 runs in 73.1 overs. AB de Villiers (65) and Faf du Plessis (62) scored their half-centuries to ensure the hosts reached a respectable first innings score. De Kock (43) and Keshav Maharaj (35) played crucial knocks for the hosts in the middle overs. Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Ravichandran Ashwin shone with the ball for the visitors taking six wickets between them.

India vs South Africa 1st Test, Day 1

  • Refresh
!

India will be happy with Hardik's innings but they will be disappointed with their batting effort. They will realize that they missed out on a brilliant opportunity on getting a big lead. Days 2 and 3 will be perhaps the best days to bat on this track with it easing out a bit. Now, it is upto their bowlers to try and restrict South Africa to 150 or less. Plenty of time left in this match, so either ways, a result is likely. Stay tuned for the Proteas' second innings...

!

Good bowling from Philander and Rabada, picking up 3 wickets apiece while Steyn and Morkel struggled, with 2 scalps each. The Proteas would be worried with Steyn's heel as they could be both, a batsman and a bowler short in the second innings.

!

Not much time taken by South Africa to wrap things up after the Tea break. They came in with a new plan to Hardik Pandya and cramped him for room, eventually getting his wicket as well. After scoring 286, the Proteas would accept a lead of 77 gleefully but the momentum is with the Indians right now, as at one stage, they looked to be conceding almost double of that lead.

Kagiso Rabada to Jasprit Bumrah

OUT! Edged and taken. The Indian innings finally ends. Full and outside off, Bumrah has a tame poke inside the line and only succeeds in nicking it to Dean Elgar at fourth slip who catches it this time. SOUTH AFRICA GET A LEAD OF 77!

Morne Morkel to Mohammed Shami

Full and wide outside off, MS swings hard but misses.

Morne Morkel to Mohammed Shami

FOUR! Much better from Shami. Full and wide outside off, Shami throws his bat at it and gets a thick outside edge which flies over point and reaches the fence! The deficit is now down to 77. The stand is worth 10.

Morne Morkel to Mohammed Shami

The batsman has attempted to put bat on ball - but fails. Four in a row.
