Watch: When Pujara left Kohli and co in splits
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.
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.
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.
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.
