South Africa 250-5 (82 ovs) vs India | Scorecard

Just when we thought the match was ambling along aimlessly, India have picked two wickets out of nowhere to bring the match to life.

Ashwin continues. He gets the ball to turn and Quinton de Kock gone for a first ball duck, caught nicely by Kohli at first slip.

Pandya continues.

As Amla and Du Plessis scamper for a run, a misjudgement, Pandya has done well to throw the ball at the right end and a direct hit has brought an end to Amla's innings.

Amla gone for 82 after that fine piece of fielding from Pandya off his own bowling.

Du Plessis finishes the over with a four.

Three runs come off Ashwin's over as the match is dawdling to a bore on Day 1. 

Pandya continues. 2 runs comes in that over.

Ashwin continues and he gets the ball to turn and bounce, testing and teasing the batsmen, Du Plessis in particular.

Pandya continues after drinks and starts off with a loosener.

That is another maiden.

Amla and Du Plessis are dominating this period of play as both batsmen are doing well to take the easy singles and twos against the bowlers. 

India are trying but are getting nothing for their efforts.

Another three runs from Pandya and Bumrah bowls a maiden before drinks are called.

Bumrah replaces Ashwin and gives just one run.

Pandya brought back in the attack and he gives away 2 runs.
