JOHANNESBURG: South Africa rode on a disciplined bowling effort to skittle out India for a paltry 187 in their first innings on the opening day of the third and final cricket Test at the New Wanderers Stadium here on Wednesday. On a wicket that promised good carry and bounce for the faster bowlers, India won the toss and surprisingly elected to bat to find only three of their batsmen reach double figures Cheteshwar Pujara (50), skipper Virat Kohli (54) and Bhuvneshwar Kumar (30).
For the Proteas, it was a collective effort from the likes of Morne Morkel (2/47), Vernon Philander (2/31), Kagiso Rabada (3/39), Lungisani Ngidi(1/27) and Andile Phehlukwayo (2/25). Brief Scores: India first innings 187 (Virat Kohli 54, Cheteshwar Pujara 50, Bhuvneshwar Kumar 30; Kagiso Rabada 3/39, Vernon Philander 2/31, Morne Morkel 2/47) vs South Africa.
