Hashim Amla posted his first Test double century as South Africa ground India's insipid bowling into submission on the second day of the first Test, at Nagpur's VCA stadium, on Sunday.

The 26-year-old scored an unbeaten 253 as the visitors declared their first innings at an imposing 558 for six.

When stumps were drawn for the day, India had scored 25 for no loss off just four overs, with Virender Sehwag  (9) giving a glimpse of what can be expected on Monday morning. Giving him company was Gautam Gambhir on 12.
