India vs South Africa 1st Test 2013 Video Highlights - Day 2

South Africa were 67 runs behind India's 280 and had four wickets in hand after a topsy turvy day two of the first Test at the Wanderers here Thursday.

India snapped up five wickets for 16 runs to leave South Africa reeling at 148 for six before Vernon Philander (48 not out) and Faf du Plessis (17 not out) steadied the ship with a 67-run stand, shepherding their team to 213 for six in 66 overs.

Ishant Sharma returned to form, taking three important wickets for 64 runs.

India, who resumed the day 255 for five, lost their last five wickets for 25 runs to end at 280 all out an hour before the lunch break.

The visitors made up for their batting collapse with a spirited bowling effort which was at times let down by sloppy fielding.

India could have seen the back of du Plessis minutes before stumps but Rohit Sharma dropped a regulation catch at second slip off Mohammed Shami (2/48).

It was the second missed opportunity of the day after Ravichandran Ashwin dropped Graeme Smith (68) when the South African skipper was on 19.

The Proteas had things under control going into tea at 118 for one and 162 behind the opposition.

The momentum shifted dramatically towards India after Ishant bowled Hashim Amla (36), who misjudged the line of an incoming delivery and did not offer a shot.

The lanky pacer had Jacques Kallis trapped in front of the stumps the very next ball. It was a welcome sight to see Ishant cranking up good pace and hitting the right areas on a helping surface.

The Delhi player was all pumped for the occasion and was warned twice by the umpire for running on the pitch.

Both Ishant and comeback man Zaheer Khan (1/72) bowled well in tandem.
