India v South Africa, 2nd Test: Mohammed Shami reaches 100 Test wickets

India v South Africa, 2nd Test: Mohammed Shami reaches 100 Test wickets

Amla was handed a reprieve when Parthiv dropped him down the leg side but he and AB de Villiers (20) did well to ensure they did not lose any more wickets to end the session with a score of 182 for two.

Aiden Markram (94) and Hashim Amla (82) threatened India with signs of a prospective big total. He is the seventh Indian pace bowler to achieve this distinction, behind Kapil Dev, Zaheer Khan, Javagal Srinath, Ishant Sharma, Karsan Ghavri and Irfan Pathan. It only helped that this is his home ground.

He had the flawless foil in Elgar as the southpaw kept at it and blocked one end up with his defence. The post-lunch session promises to be interesting. Feet going nowhere, Rahul pushed well in front of his body at a full one and spooned back a return catch, while Pujara, haring out of his crease after clipping his first ball to the right of mid-on, was run-out by a brilliantly athletic pick-up and direct hit from the debutant Lungi Ngidi.

With Elgar back and an out of form Amla coming into bat, the Indians looked to attack.

Making a pronounced movement across his stumps - much as he had in Cape Town - Vijay played at a greater percentage of balls in this channel than he is known to, particularly early in his innings, but looked in control apart from a couple of plays and misses. In fact in that innings Ravichandran Ashwin bowled just one over as the pacers unleashed a havoc. Even though the opener reviewed the decision as he felt his bat had hit the pad, the third umpire decided otherwise.

South Africa were dominant in the first two sessions of Day 1. Ishant landed a short delivery outside off and De Villiers ended up getting an inside edge to it that went straight to the stumps. The Indians were ecstatic, but skipper Faf and Amla stitched together another quality partnership before a run out saw Amla walk back to the dressing room. Amla was on 82 and looked to steal a quick single after negotiating a shortish delivery from Pandya.

Markram and Amla though, continued unruffled, and looked nearly immovable when Ashwin struck again, getting a snick off Markram that Parthiv held on to well to end the second-wicket stand at 63 runs. More than four years after that Wanderers debacle, Ashwin found a pitch that gave him some turn, and he has not just kept India alive but in partnership with Hardik Pandya he has given India the upper hand despite losing the toss and watching their main fast bowlers give away runs like millionaires. You just can not bowl all over the place and hope to pick wickets against the best in the business.

Two balls later, Quinton de Kock edged his first ball to slip, giving Ashwin his third wicket. And run outs don't happen every over at the worldwide level.
