India weather early storm from South African quicks in third test

India pacer Jasprit Bumrah said on Thursday that he was happy to clinch his maiden five-wicket haul in Tests against South Africa and hopes his side will capitalise on the lead.

The emergence of Jasprit Bumrah as a serious contender for a spot in India's Test starting XI has been one of the few positives of the South Africa tour for Virat Kohli's Indian cricket team. Eleven wickets fell on day 1 of the third Test in Johannesburg on Wednesday.

While engagement between the two Koreas is at its highest level in years, North Korea has held a hard line on certain issues. North and South Korea will form their first joint Olympic team and march together at the opening ceremony , Seoul says.

Cheteshwar Pujara, the top-scorer in India's first innings with 54, had said at the end of day one that India's 187 was akin to 300, given the conditions. Proteas appeared to be in a commanding position at stumps on day 1. The Johannesburg Test in 2006 between South Africa and New Zealand also didn't have a ball bowled by the spinners in the first two innings. "If we post a good first innings score, I think it will be a good game", he signed off.

Rabada's wicket was the second breakthrough for India in the morning session after opener Dean Elgar went early on without adding to his overnight score of 4.

It was a similar story in the second innings as AB de Villiers, Dean Elgar and Du Plessis made 80, 61 and 48 respectively. The last time we went to India we didn't play as well, but I do feel the conditions were touching on extreme.

A half-hour later, Bumrah produced a break-back to rattle Faf du Plessis's off-stump.

AB De Villiers was looking to take on Bhuvneshwar Kumar going for an expensive drive. 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. He tried to hit the ball on the rise only to miss the handsome inswinger from Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Predictably, he scored predominantly through the leg-side; as his innings progressed, he jumped so far outside off to expose middle and leg, backing himself to pick balls bowled straighter and doing so successfully until flicking Bumrah down the throat of deep backward square-leg after almost four hours at the crease.

Apple Apologizes for Slowing Down Older Versions of iPhones
This was because numerous iPhone models were being powered by older batteries that caused shutting down these particular iPhones. Without the throttling feature in place, Apple says, iPhones with ageing batteries could suffer from unexpected shutdowns.

The Saurashtra batsman continued to dig deep, reaching his 17th Test fifty off 179 deliveries but was immediately dismissed caught behind by Quinton de Kock off Phehlukwayo. The decision looked a bit unfair as the review said the ball was kissing the leg stump and the on-field umpire's decision stood.
