Live Score, 2nd Test: India (IND) vs South Africa (SA) © AFP
India fought back late to reduce South Africa to 269 for six wickets in their first innings on the opening day of the second cricket Test at the SuperSport Park on Saturday. Aiden Markram (94) and Hashim Amla (82) threatened India with signs of a prospective big total. But India's bowling unit, spearheaded by off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin (3/90), took four wickets in the final session to show the team's intent of making a strong comeback after the defeat in the opening Test in Cape Town. Captain Faf du Plessis (24 batting) and Keshav Maharaj (10 batting) were at the crease at the end of the day's play. (LIVE SCORECARD)
Du Plessis earlier in the morning won the toss and elected to bat on a bouncy wicket with less seam and swing as compared to the Newlands wicket in the first Test. Opening batsmen Markram and Dean Elgar (31) justified the skipper's decision with sensible batting. They stitched together a 85-run partnership to give a good start to the hosts. Indian pacers Jasprit Bumrah, Ishant Sharma and Harik Pandya operated with probing line and length.
Ishant replaced Bhuvneshwar Kumar for this match, while injured glovesman Wriddhiman Saha made way for Parthiv Patel. Another change was Lokesh Rahul replacing Shikhar Dhawan.
Mohammed Shami disappointed by bowling fully-pitched deliveries though Pandya rose up to the challenge got more overs to bowl than the former.
