Ashwin basks after helping India contain S. Africa on Day 1

Virat Kohli

"It was a reality check in terms of not being able to win a Test match for the country on day five when all things were actually set up for a spinner", Ashwin said after bowling 30 overs for under three an over and three wickets to go with it. Elgar struggled throughout his innings, lacking rhythm and timing, but was just starting to look settled when one from Ashwin, turned and bounced deceiving the left-hander who was caught between wanting drive and defend, ultimately did neither providing Murali Vijay with a simple catch at silly point after making 31.

India then attacked Amla with short stuff and also tried to lure him outside the off-stump.

He is one of the only three Indian batsmen in global cricket who have got hundreds across all formats-the other two being Suresh Raina and Rohit Sharma. A niggle in the hamstring for Wriddhiman Saha gave Parthiv Patel an opportunity with the glove.

"In this series and for the rest of the summer, we will be looking to see how best we can fit four fast bowlers into whatever formula we come up with", South Africa coach Ottis Gibson told reporters this week.

Further, crediting the county stint with Worcestershire for aiding him in this process, Ashwin said that he has forgotten the history of South Africa and all he wants to do is to stride forward.

Two balls later, de Kock edged Ashwin to India captain Virat Kohli at slip, with Kohli setting off on a vigorous celebration that took him right to the other end of the pitch. During the session, Shami left the field due to a mild headache but was declared alright later on. It was Ishant and Pandya, who showed more Test-match discipline than India's two strike forces, who kept South Africa's run rate from getting out of hand.

Even war-torn South Sudan weighed in, with President Salva Kiir's spokesman Ateny Wek Ateny slamming the comments as "outrageous". In a statement after Trump's comments were first reported, the White House did not deny them .

After 10 overs‚ Elgar and Markram were chipping away with respective scores of nine and 11 as they withstood pressure from Indian bowlers Jasprit Bumrah‚ Mohammed Shami and Ishant Sharma. He immediately troubled Elgar and continued to do so throughout his first spell.

Off-spinner R Ashwin revealed on Saturday (January 13) that the unanticipated conditions at SuperSport Park in Centurion forced the team to make the last-minute changes.

The Proteas had crossed 50 in the 21st over.

Playing on his home ground, Markram pounced on anything loose by the Indian seamers to hit nine fours and move to a second half-century in his fifth test.

Under the scorching sun, the Indian team were forced to field after South Africa won the toss and elected to bat first. He came in the side in place of injured Dale Steyn.

India made three changes to its team in an effort to get back into the series.
