India have been bowled out for 280 on Day Two of the first Test against South Africa at the Wanderers, Johannesburg. India started Day Two on 255 for five and were in a decent position after Virat Kohli’s ton on Day One set the tone. However, the South African pace battery hit back and finished things off by snaring the rest of the batting.


Ajinkya Rahane and MS Dhoni were circumspect early on and were watching the ball. There was a bit of moisture in the air as it had rained a bit in Johannesburg. Rahane got things going with a push through the covers for four and that was his only scoring shot of the day. However, it was a battle of attrition thereafter. Dhoni and Rahane were content in blocking and seeing it through.


Morkel was getting the ball to climb and he had Dhoni for 19 as he edged one outside the off-stump. Rahane soon followed as he poked at one outside the off-stump from Vernon Philander. Zaheer Khan was trapped plumb in front by Philander off the first ball and the South African was now on a hat-trick. Ishant Sharma, however, played it with control.


Ravichandran Ashwin essayed a few confident strokes and extended India’s charge from 264 to 280. India lost their last five wickets for 25. Philander finished with four for 61. Morkel finished things off by bowling Mohammed Shami.


Earlier on Day One, Kohli stole the show with a sparkling ton. Once they lost the openers early, Kohli took control in the company of Cheteshwar Pujara. They built a good stand, but Pujara was run-out for 25. Thereafter, India lost Rohit for 14 before Rahane entered the picture. He built a good stand with Kohli before the latter was dismissed for 119. Dhoni then saw through the end of day’s play with Rahane.


Brief scores:


India 280 (Virat Kohli 119, Ajinkya Rahane 47; Vernon Philander 4 for 61, Morne Morkel 3 for 34) vs South Africa.
