Rabada and Amla put on useful partnership at Wanderers

The in-form de Villiers, who escaped a plumb leg before decision on the very first over after lunch from Ishant Sharma, failed to cash in on the opportunity with Bhuvneshwar Kumar castling his middle stick with a big in-swinger.

Hashim Amla forged a lone hand for South Africa as his unbeaten half-century helped his side to 143 for six at tea on the second day of the third and final test at the Wanderers on Thursday. Pujara showed what is expected of the top-order batsmen in a team after skipper Virat Kohli won the toss on the opening day of the third Test at the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg and chose to take the bold step of batting first in overcast conditions.

India had been dismissed for 187 on the opening day.

Rabada‚ who soaked up the pressure by playing sensible cricket and frustrated the Indian bowlers by leaving risky balls and punishing the bad ones‚ was removed agonisingly close to his highest Test score of 34‚ scored against New Zealand in Hamilton previous year. Proteas appeared to be in a commanding position at stumps on day 1.

He came together with skipper Kohli to fix the early damages inflicted on India's openers by fiery South African bowlers.

Opener Dean Elgar fell early for South Africa without adding to his overnight score of 4. 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. Batting well outside his crease to negate swing, he walked right across his stumps to his first ball even as Bhuvneshwar was loading to combat seam as well.

Earlier, nightwatchman Kagiso Rabada frustrated the Indian bowlers for 114 minutes as South Africa reached 81 for 3 in 31 overs at lunch. While Kohli looked to attack the bad deliveries and hit a few crisp drives, he also got a life in 11 when Philander dropped a dolly running in at covers off Rabada.

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. India back in the game! Amla and Philander were together when the umpires called an end to the second session. Rabada was beaten more often than not, outside off stump, but looked undeterred.
