South Africa beat India by 72 runs in first Test

Dale Steyn Shikhar Dhawan South Africa India cricket

Jasprit Bumrah's Test debut at Newlands got better and lethal on Monday as the Indian pacer bowled an nearly unplayable spell of 3/39 in South Africa's second innings of the first Test, which included the wicket of home skipper Faf du Plessis (0) that reminded of the "perfume balls" bowled by the famous West Indian quartet of the '70s.

The first test provided plenty of entertainment right from day one, as neither side was willing to grab the game by the scruff of the neck.

Rain prevented any play on the third day of the first Test between South Africa and India at Newlands yesterday, but with fine weather expected for the remaining two days there is still a good chance of a result. India has never won a series in South Africa, losing five of the six it has played.

He faced four balls before AB de Villiers holed out on the long-on boundary for 35 - South Africa's top score - to end the innings and force the interval.

The day three play was called off after heavy rainfall continued to lash Cape Town on Sunday.

But it was not good enough for Madrid as Celta equalised in the 82nd minute via Maxi Gomez after Iago Aspas had his penalty saved 10 minutes earlier.

Debutant Jasprit Bumrah and Shami finished the innings with three wickets each‚ and Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Hardik Pandya took two apiece.

South Africa opener Elgar then nearly collected a pair when the hosts began their second innings, the left-hander pulling his first ball just out of reach of Mohammad Shami at mid-on having nicked off third delivery in his first knock at Newlands.

Number one ranked India took eight Proteas wickets in the morning session as they bowled the hosts out for 130, leaving them needing 208 for victory.

The series between top-ranked test team India and No. 2 South Africa will be decided over three tests, with matches in Centurion and Johannesburg to come.

Steyn had sustained the injury just before tea on the second day when he landed awkwardly in the footholes.
