India’s historic triumph over South Africa in the first Test

CENTURION: Indian bowlers displayed combined effort to dismiss South Africa for 191 in the second innings of the first Test; becoming the first Asian side to win a Test match against South Africa at the SuperSport Park.

Set to chase 305, the hosts resumed the run-chase at 94/4, Dean Elgar and Temba Bavuma started the proceedings with a decent partnership. The pair appeared solid, but, Elgar fell short after scoring 77. The side slipped to 130/5 following his dismissal.

Bavuma then partnered with Quinton de Kock, who could not stay for long at the crease and dismissed cheaply for 21. Soon after, the South African batting tail had no answers to the Indian bowling attack and the hosts, in the end, bundled out for 191.

Bavuma, the lone warrior for the side, remained not out with his valiant 35. Elgar, however, remained top-scorer for the Proteas in the second innings.

For India, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami bagged three wickets each, while Mohammed Siraj and Ravichandran Ashwin each claimed two wickets.
