Flying Philander leads Proteas to first test victory over India

South Africa win toss, opt to bat in first test v India

Cape Town: The third day of the first Test between South Africa and India has been delayed due to rain in Cape Town, however, Newlands Stadium curator Evan Flint believes that fans will be able to get some cricketing action on Sunday.In an exclusive conversation with Cricketnext, the Newlands curator said that once the rain stops, he and his troops will be able to get the ground ready in time for play to begin on the third day. Resuming from Saturday's total of 65/2 as the third day's play was completely washed out, the hosts failed to get going and could only manage to add 65 runs before losing the final eight wickets.

Debutant Jasprit Bumrah and Shami finished the innings with three wickets each‚ and Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Hardik Pandya took two apiece. Wickets kept falling as the Indian seamers continued their dominance on the fourth morning. In fact, it would be fair to say that India have had the best of conditions or the duration of the Test, which makes the fact that they let a great chance slip between their fingers all the more heartbreaking.

For a change, the Indian catching was in good health, and when South Africa were dismissed for 130, setting up a chase of 208 India's players were all pumping fists and mouthy celebrations.

Shikhar Dhawan (16) was out first as he sparred a rising deliver from Morne Morkel (2-39) to gully. Morkel had Cheteshwar Pujara caught behind with a sniping away swinger to reduce India to 39/3. I just try and a look at the ball and keep it simple.

However, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is unfazed by the fact that the club failed to secure th e Dutch international's signature. The agreed fee for Van Dijk was a world-record sum for a defender, topping Manchester City's deal to sign Kyle Walker in July.

After Philander, Kagiso Rabada struck twice to make it 82/7 for India.

The seam bowlers had shown Philander the way and from 30 without loss, India had fallen to 82 for seven by tea. For India, they will have to strike early tomorrow to put pressure on the South African middle order. The right-arm pacer then sent packing Shami (4) and Bumrah (0) to seal the victory for South Africa.

South Africa were bundled out for 286 in the first innings after some decent display of bowling by the Indians, especially Bhuvneshwar Kumar. But a blow for South Africa is that Dale Steyn is unable to bowl anymore in this match and may well be out for the rest of the series. Riding on the scintillating 93-run knock of Hardik Pandya, India posted 209-run in its first innings. Pandya's blazing innings was studded with 14 fours and a six but fell short of what could have been his second hundred.
