SA beat India by 72 runs, take 1-0 lead

India collapsed to a 72-run defeat on the fourth day of the first Test against South Africa in a meeting of the world's two top-ranked teams.

The South Africa vs India first Test coverage continues on Sony Ten 1, Sony Ten 1 HD in English and Sony Ten 3, Sony Ten 3 HD in Hindi.

The hosts have taken a lead of 142 runs as all-rounder Hardik Pandya's fighting knock of 93 lifted India out of the hole but that didn't stop South Africa from getting a 77-run first-innings lead.

The home side reached the close on 65/2 in their second innings with Hashim Amla on four and nightwatchman Kagiso Rabada two not out.

Pandya came to the crease when India slumped to 76/5‚ the first turn of a tumble in which‚ in 33 balls‚ they lost three wickets for 16 runs and teetered to 92/7. The Baroda right-hander hit 14 boundaries and one hit over the fence in his 95-ball innings.

Rabada claimed the wicket of Wriddhiman Saha (eight) with the last ball before tea. However, it was for less than half an hour.

In all 10 of the 25 overs bowled in the session were scoreless and only 48 runs were scored.

Dale Steyn's injury will be reassessed after the four to six week recovery period.

Philander then took three wickets in four balls to seal victory after a seventh-wicket stand of 49 between top-scorer Ravichandran Ashwin (37) and Bhuvneshwar Kumar (13 not out) had briefly sent jitters through the Newlands crowd.

Vernon Philander and Morne Morkel were in rasping form‚ finding seam movement and bounce.

Six balls after Vijay survived a second time Morkel had Shikhar Dhawan caught in the gully with a vicious delivery that reared up and looped off the splice.

South Africa made a good start to their second innings, with Aiden Markram and Dean Elgar putting on 52 for the first wicket before Pandya dismissed both openers in successive overs.

Allrounder Pandya took 2/17.
