Flying Philander leads Proteas to first test victory over India

Jasprit Bumrah's Test debut at Newlands got better and lethal on Monday as the Indian pacer bowled an nearly unplayable spell of 3/39 in South Africa's second innings of the first Test, which included the wicket of home skipper Faf du Plessis (0) that reminded of the "perfume balls" bowled by the famous West Indian quartet of the '70s.

South Africa seamer Vernon Philander sealed a low-scoring game with his 6-42 in the second innings, hastening India's demise when he took three wickets in four balls to end the game.

In the series against England, the South African pacer sustained a shoulder injury that kept him out for two Tests but he suffered a major setback when he broke his shoulder bone during the Perth Test against Australia which sidelined him for 13 months.

South Africa were bowled out for 286 in their first innings, before restricting India to 209 in reply.

The series between top-ranked test team India and No. 2 South Africa will be decided over three tests, with matches in Centurion and Johannesburg to come.

"They create relentless pressure", Kohli said.

Wriddhiman Saha was out lbw for 8 to take the teams to tea. Mohammed Shami and last man Jasprit Bumrah were undone in successive balls by typical Philander outswingers to seal victory. Now he will not play in this match. South Africa would have probably thought of batting long and then give a big target to India.

Buveneshwar Kumar starred for the Indians in the first innings, claiming impressive figures of 4/87 that had plenty of skill.

South Africa resumed their second innings on 65/2‚ and lost eight wickets for 65 runs in the 21.2 overs bowled in the morning session to be dismissed for 130.

India's run chase started promisingly with Murali Vijay and Shikhar Dhawan putting on 30 for the first wicket, although Vijay was reprieved on review twice after being given out against Philander, for leg before wicket and a catch behind the wicket.
