India 80-2 at tea on day two

Amla does have the habit of going on to big scores after being dropped early on and Virat Kohli would have been grinding his teeth after Parthiv Patel could only parry the ball away with the tips of his gloves.

For his dismissal‚ Markram's review was unsuccesful as Ultraedge showed that the ball came off his bat and the decision remained that of the umpire‚ who originally had waved his finger for out.

Indian bowlers Ishant Sharma and R Ashwin produced splendid spells on Sunday to bowl South Africa out for 335 runs in the first innings of second Test being played at Centurion.

As the second session wore on, South Africa moved their catchers in front of the wicket - quite often stationing two short covers - and looked to dry up the scoring. The hosts were cruising at 246/3 at one point and Hashim Amla looked primed for a 29th Test century.

That took South Africa from 246/3 to 251/6, and what should have been a dominant day at the office became one that India will be more satisfied with.

India 80-2 at tea on day two

Du Plessis, who was unbeaten on 24 on Saturday, drove the hosts forward in the morning even though he didn't get convincing support from the other end.

In the 21st over, Dean Elgar (31) was handed a reprieve when Murali Vijay misjudged a catch at the deep backward square leg that went for a boundary and in the same over, Markram smashed two more fours to bring the 50-run opening stand.

But India's persistence was rewarded late, with Hardik Pandya running out Hashim Amla with a brilliant pick up and throw, Ashwin snaring Quinton de Kock first ball in the slips, and Vernon Philander paying no heed to his captain's raised hand and charging down the track to be run out. Lungisani Ngidi made his Test debut in the place of injured Dale Steyn for South Africa while India got Ishant Sharma and Parthiv Patel in the place of Wriddhiman Saha and Bhuvneshwar Kumar respectively.

South Africa finished on 269 for six. The duo added another 63 runs for the second wicket as the ball did hardly anything for the Indian bowlers.

But the first two sessions was all about chase the leather for the Indian fielders as the South Africa batsmen made hay. In fact, it nearly seemed like his plan to play three pacers and a spinner backfired as there was hardly anything in the wicket for the Indian bowlers at least. It was clearly a lucky wicket for the visitors as Elgar jumped down the track and hit the ball straight at Vijay who somehow managed to hold onto that one after it hit his body. But South Africa had already reached 324/8 by this time thanks to du Plessis. Also, two quick wickets after that gave India the edge.
