Lungi Ngidi bowled a fiery morning spell to run through the Indian middle-order as South Africa restricted the visitors to 327 on day three of the first Test.
However India did strike back before the lunch break with Jasprit Bumrah’s unplayable away swinger found opposition skipper Dean Elgar’s (1) outside edge. South Africa went into the break with the scoreboard reading 21 for one.
Mohammed Shami and Mohammad Siraj strike in the post-lunch session as South Africa lose four in the first innings of the Boxing Day Test, India on top at Centurion. After a washed-out Day 2 at SuperSport Park, Kagiso Rabada and Lungi Ngidi triggered an India collapse as the visitors lose 7 wickets for 55 runs in the first session of day 3.
Vice-captain KL Rahul (123) and Ajinkya Rahane (48) made vital contributions for India. Persistent rain forced day two of the first Test between South Africa and India to be washed out without a ball being bowled at SuperSport Park here on Monday. With rain coming at a stop and start pace from morning causing the second day of the Boxing Day Test to be a wash-out, the weather forecast is good for the next two days with rain and thunderstorms predicted for the final day.
