South Africa bowl out India for 187 on day one

India made two changes, with batsman Ajinkya Rahane and seamer Bhuvneshwar Kumar taking over from Rohit Sharma and Ravichandran Ashwin respectively.

However, an injury to Temba Bavuma may force a rethink, although Theunis de Bruyn and all-rounder Andile Phehlukwayo are options if the hosts do opt to go without a spinner in Johannesburg.

Former India opener Virender Sehwag has picked his India Playing XI for the third Test against South Africa in Johannesburg. Shikhar Dhawan was dropped after Cape Town, while Murali Vijay and KL Rahul have yet to replicate their run-scoring feats of the past 12 months. The latter kept his place in the side at the Wanderers but his performance on Wednesday did little to justify that decision.

With overcast conditions and pitch sporting more grass than the normal, India were shot out for 187 as all the five South African pacemen got amongst the wickets.

WICKET! Vernon Philander has got his second wicket in this innings, as he sees off Mohammed Shami for eight runs. Kohli went hard at the ball outside off only to edge it to de Villers at slip.

Kohli survived two dropped chances before registering his fifty.

Day 1 Summary: India lost their openers too early. He was constantly beaten by the movement generated by Philander, Rabada and Morne Morkel but his resolve would not be broken easily.

As a result, he took 54 balls to score his first run, which means, he did not score a single run in the first 53 deliveries he faced.

After Pujara's marathon knock was ended by Phehlukwayo, India's lower middle-order crumbled under constant pressure by the pacers.

Whatever combination South Africa decide on, their approach remains the same: to keep their foot on the throats of India's batsmen and try to make them feel as uncomfortable as possible at the country's most intimidating venue. Morkel has trapped him in front of the wickets.

WICKET! Hardik Pandya returns to the pavilion, as India continue to lose wickets.

All of a sudden, Indian went from 144-4 to 144-7.

"We had received a request from the local club, NorthWest Cricket, to send net bowlers for the India team and the talented brothers were sent because they are hard-working and talented", the coach added. He showed some good application once again at the Wanderers with a robust innings.

India were battling to stay in the game at that point against the seaming ball, but had two pieces of luck before lunch. He bowled quite a few unplayable deliveries in his three overs on the day and will be looking to provide some more early breakthroughs when South Africa come out to bat at 6-1 on Thursday morning.
