South Africa bowled out for 335 runs in first innings

India bowled out South Africa for 335 in their first innings before reaching 4/0 till lunch on the second day of the second cricket Test at the SuperSport Park here on Sunday.

All told, each session got better for India.

Given the lack of either seam movement or steep bounce, Vijay and Kohli weren't unduly anxious by balls in the corridor outside off stump.

South Africa finished on 269 for six. While Kohli remained busy, Vijay brought the shutters down and played for the interval, leaving more balls outside off stump and getting right behind the line to defend. It is only the second match in India's 12-Test long overseas schedule in 2018-19, and already they are faced with a must-not-lose situation in a bid to keep this series alive.

Openers Murali Vijay (four) and Lokesh Rahul will resume in the afternoon on a slow wicket that is uncharacteristic of the venue, but will provide bounce and is likely to quicken up over the next two days.

In conditions perfectly suited to his game, impetuousness or nerves had cost Pujara a massive opportunity to score some runs.

India are still 331 runs behind South Africa.

Kagiso Rabada (11) then hung around for nearly 12 overs with Du Plessis, adding 42 for the eighth wicket. Ishant Sharma picked two wickets on day 2 of the match. He pushed Rabada back with a quicker one, and turned it away from the left-hander. Twice in two balls, India's fielders let off Rabada. Then he charged out of his crease, slogged, and miscued one high over the point region.

Hardik Pandya was put off by an onrushing Shami from short third-man though, and spilled the effort onto the latter, who also had a bite at the ball before it dropped to the floor. Moments later, Parthiv Patel ran out Vernon Philander. Soon after, du Plessis appeared to edge Ashwin while looking to defend him off the back foot and the ball clanged off Parthiv's gloves.

Du Plessis held up India, although the tourists will still be positive after restricting the South Africans to less than 350 on a seemingly good batting pitch.

The very next ball, Ashwin drew Rabada into a big shot with a flighted delivery. Soon after, he had du Plessis out bowled with a full one.

Ashwin was expected to play a huge role in this team when they travel in overseas in this calendar year after enjoying a golden run at home in his career so far.
