42.4 Vernon Philander to Jasprit Bumrah

OUT! Caught. Vernon Philander to Jasprit Bumrah. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump moves in front defending, outside edge to slips, by du Plessis. It's all over. Vernon Philander takes his sixth and his career best figures, in front of his home crowd. What a performance from him and the rest of the bowlers to bowl out India for 135. There must have been a few nerves in the home camp when Ravichandran Ashwin and Bhuvneshwar Kumar had a good partnership going but once one wicket fell, the rest were like dominoes.South Africa go 1-0 up in the series and if the rest of the Tests are anything like this it will be a cracker. Both teams had to fight hard at various moments but in the end it was the South African bowlers that came out on top against the very dangerous Indian top-order. Join us for the 2nd Test at Centurion to see if India can strike back.

42.3 Vernon Philander to Mohammed Shami

OUT! Caught. Vernon Philander to Mohammed Shami. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, outside edge to slips, by du Plessis. Five wickets for Vernon Philander. Wonderful piece of bowling, initially using the in-swinger to set Shami up and then the one that goes away. Gets the edge and Faf clings on in the slips.

42.1 Vernon Philander to Ravichandran Ashwin

OUT! Caught. Vernon Philander to Ravichandran Ashwin. Out-swinging back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot cutting, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by de Kock. Brilliant work by de Kock, coming up to the stumps to keep Ashwin in his crease and immediately it pays dividends. The batsman chases a wide delivery and feathers an edge through to the keeper who takes a wonderful smart catch.
