India has South Africa 130 all out to take control

Cape Town: South Africa were dealt a major blow after senior-most pacer Dale Steyn was ruled out for the remainder of three-match series against India after damaging a tissue on his left heel during the second day of the opening Test.

South Africa seamer Vernon Philander sealed a low-scoring game with his 6-42 in the second innings, hastening India's demise when he took three wickets in four balls to end the game.

India lost 3-14 after lunch but Pandya, having survived a number of scares - he overturned a caught-behind dismissal on five, was dropped on 15 by Dean Elgar, and profited from a missed stumping by Quinton de Kock on 71 - ensured the tourists trailed by just 77 on first innings.

Both teams now head to SuperSport Park in Centurion for the second test, which starts on 13 January.

Rain prevented any play on the third day of the first Test between South Africa and India at Newlands yesterday, but with fine weather expected for the remaining two days there is still a good chance of a result. A team spokesman said the injury was being assessed and treated.

Rohit Sharma was bowled comprehensively soon after Kohli went - and an over after he was dropped in the outfield.

Former skipper AB de Villiers (35) was the lone batsman offering some kind of resistance even as the Indian pacers led by Mohammed Shami (3/28) and Jasprit Bumrah (3/39) took full advantage of the conditions. South Africa won the toss and elected to bat on a wicket that provided plenty of swing and seam for the fast bowlers.

India need 208 runs to win this match.

Earlier, it had been the Indian bowlers who held sway when South Africa were bowled out for 130 in their second innings, losing their last eight wickets for 65 runs.

Hardik Pandya got out for 1 runs in the balling of Philanders, who has taken 3 wickets in the 2nd innings.
