Published: January 14, 2018 12:48 pm India vs South Africa Live Score 2nd Test, Day 2: India have South Africa six down.
India had a successful day in Centurion on Saturday when they reduced South Africa to 269 for 6 at stumps on day one of the 2nd Test on Saturday. Day one saw a dramatic end with India managing to scalp three quick wickets in the final hour of the post-Tea session to get back into the game. Poor running between the wickets cost visitors the wickets of the dangerous Hashim Amla and Vernon Philander, while wicketkeeping batsman Quinton de Kock got out on a golden duck on a gorgeous delivery from spinner Ravichandran Ashwin. The spinner took 3 wickets in the day including the precious one of opening batsman Aiden Markram who played a solid 94-run innings. Markram and Amla, who scored 84 runs, laid down a solid foundation for the Proteas to score a high total in the first innings. But India found a way to get back into the game by taking quick wickets in the last hour. With Ashwin finding turn on the pitch, India would look to bowl out South Africa on the 2nd Day in the first session and restrict them below 300. But with skipper Faf du Plessis still on the crease, the hosts would hope they can still manage to hurt India by increasing their total past 350 and out India on the backfoot.
