63.5 Mohammed Shami to Kagiso Rabada

OUT! Caught. Mohammed Shami to Kagiso Rabada. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Saha. A slither of an outside edge, and gobbled up behind! A full blooded drive away from the body by Rabada, and it kisses the blade on the way through to the keeper.The South African tail made them wait, but India have secured a big victory to go 1-0 up in the series. A double century for Mayank Agarwal, twin hundreds for Rohit Sharma, a seven wicket haul for Ravi Ashwin, and Mohammad Shami with a super five for in the final innings. They were the standout performances for the hosts, that helped them dominate this Test. The visitors did have good patches, especially in their efforts with the bat. Dean Elgar and Quinton de Kock both making centuries of their own. It wasn't enough for South Africa, though, and they will have to improve in a few areas to close the gap between the teams for the next Test, which starts on Thursday.

59.1 Mohammed Shami to Dane Piedt

OUT! Bowled. Mohammed Shami to Dane Piedt. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, inside edge to. The change back to Shami has worked! Relief for India. Piedt goes for a half-hearted drive, with the weight not fully going into the shot. A waft of the bat, and a thick inside edge back into off stump. That ends a top knock from the number ten. The hosts are one wicket away.
