Johannesburg [South Africa], Jan 26 (ANI): Pacer Jasprit Bumrah scalped his maiden five-wicket haul in Tests to help restrict South Africa to 194 in their first innings, while openers Murali Vijay, Parthiv Patel and KL Rahul steadied India to 49 for 1 on Day 2 of the third Test here at the New Wanderers Stadium on Thursday.
Amla and all-rounder Vernon Philander then took ground and forged a fighting partnership of 44 runs for the seventh wicket stand before both of them fell soon after.
The lower-order batsmen had no answer to Bumrah's smart bowling and South Africa, were all out for 194, having taken a lead of just 7 runs.
Amla top scored for the side with 61, followed by Philander's 35 and 30 runs from Rabada.
For the Indian bowlers, Bumrah's figures were 5 for 54, followed by Bhuvneshwar's 3 for 44. Ishant and Mohammad Shami took a wicket each.
The Indian openers, Vijay and Patel started cautiously. Patel played aggressively and helped India to wipe off the small lead soon. However, he departed for 16 after he edged to third slip to give Philander his first wicket.
