Scoreboard south africa vs india, first test

Pandya came to bat at a stage when India were losing wickets in a jiffy and along with Bhuvneshwar Kumar, the duo added 99 runs for the eighth wicket which helped India cross the 200-mark on a pitch that had a lot of seam movement.

Sharma spent more than an hour-and-a-half and 59 balls on his 11, which captured India's disciplined approach in the face of South Africa's miserly bowling.

The type of injury normally takes 4-6 weeks to heal, Moosajee added, nearly certainly ruling Steyn out of the rest of the series against India and putting a question mark over whether he can once again regain full fitness ahead of Australia's tour in March.

India had slumped to 92 for seven in reply to South Africa's first innings total of 286 when Pandya found a determined ally in Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Vijay, having survived an ill-judged lbw review, was caught at gully by Elgar as he chased a cover drive, and Dhawan paid for a similar poor shot four balls later.

Nearly as though he flicked a switch he changed from survival to attacking mode.

Pandya showed no such reticence to attack, hitting 13 fours and a six off the 68 balls bowled to him.

"He played his natural game".

South Africa maintained a run-rate of over four runs per over for a major part of their innings, before ending at 3.90 in 73.1 overs.

Rabada gave credit to Pandya but said his strategy would not always work. Sometimes that can put you [the bowlers] on the back foot, sometimes it can pay off for the bowling side. "That partnership got us back in the game and brought belief back in the change room".

Certainly the balance had shifted quite violently by then from the time when, just 29 deliveries into the keenly-awaited hostilities, India were understandably whooping it up with SA a woozy-eyed 12 for three and Bhuvneshwar Kumar quite rampant.

If anything, Pandya stepped up his aggressive attitude after the dismissal of Kumar, swinging at a succession of short-pitched deliveries from Morkel and Kagiso Rabada. Cheteshwar Pujara was marginally better but the duo was extremely cautious as India scored a laborious 48 in 25 overs in the first session.

"Overall we're in a good position".

According to news daily, Mid-Day, Azharuddin was quoted saying, "This is a golden opportunity to play attacking cricket and the reason is very simple - India has a strong pace bowling attack and they have been bowling well".

The 34-year-old paceman, regarded as one of the game's great fast bowlers, has been plagued by problems with that shoulder and only played eight Tests in three years before his return this week.
