Coming out to bat, South Africa too started poorly as they lost Aiden Markram (2) as Bhuvneshwar Kumar produced the ideal edge for Parthiv Patel to do the needful behind the wickets.

By stumps on Day 2, the third and final test was already racing toward a result with India 17 overs into its second innings and 49-1 for an overall lead of 42 runs.

India had been dismissed for 187 on the opening day.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar has done wonders with the ball too in the first innings and has rattled the South African batting line up.

Mourinho close to signing new deal at United
What let down Man United last season, which caused them to finish sixth, was the inability to see off games, especially at home. Boss Jose Mourinho is without Daley Blind, Eric Bailly, Michael Carrick and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The dismissal of de Villiers brought in du Plessis, who started well by cracking Jasprit Bumrah for a boundary before the same bowler came back to clip his off-stump as the Proteas tottered at 107/5. Then the four-match series against Australia in March will provide an opportunity for South Africa to topple the Asian giants by the April 3 cut-off date, according to the Cricket South Africa (CSA) website.

Those words were lent greater meaning as action unfolded in Johannesburg with South Africa resuming through Dean Elgar and Kagiso Rabada, the nightwatchman, on 6 for 1. Bhuvi picked Markram yesterday itself towards the end of the first day's play and today he has picked two more wickets to decimate the South African batting order. Apart from Pujara and Kohli, Bhuvnesh Kumar (30) was the only batsman to reach double digits.

South Africa crossed 100 in the 40th over, but lost another wicket quickly as Bumrah (2/37) bowled Faf du Plessis (8), who was out shouldering his arms to an inswinging delivery. Indian bowlers did a decent job, but Rabada and Amla were equally good. And Pandya (0) showed that he lacks the game sense and played a wild pull for Quinton to run back and pick a smart catch - his fifth of the innings.

Amla top scored for the side with 61, followed by Philander's 35 and 30 runs from Rabada. Bhuvneshwar struck the biggest blow, setting AB de Villiers up beautifully before delivering the sucker punch. Through application, pluck and deserved luck, Amla and Philander ate into the Indian total by putting on 44 priceless runs when Bumrah catalysed the beginning of the end.
