Two soft dismissals in successive balls marred an otherwise excellent first two sessions for India on day two in Centurion, where they kept South Africa to a less-than-imposing first-innings total of 335.

As the second session wore on, South Africa moved their catchers in front of the wicket - quite often stationing two short covers - and looked to dry up the scoring.

Captain Faf du Plessis (63) registered his 17th fifty in Test cricket as South Africa added 66 runs to the overnight score from 269/6 to post 335 runs on Sunday.

The day changed dramatically with an outstanding piece of fielding by Hardik Pandya, who ran out Amla for 82.

India's reply to that mediocre South African score on a good batting pitch at Centurion stuttered early when KL Rahul was out caught and bowled by Morne Morkel for 10, and Cheteshwar Pujara run out first ball he faced by a direct hit at the non-striker's end from debutant Lungi Ngidi.

Amla, on his back foot, was slow to start and Pandya raced to pick up the ball, turned and threw down the stumps at the bowler's end.

Amid the various discussions that are going on, former able opener Virender Sehwag today stated that Virat Kohli "should drop himself" if he fails in the second Test against South Africa, launching a scathing attack on the India skipper for his team selection.

Ishant then returned, sending Pandya to the square-leg boundary, and a bit of athleticism from the latter sent back Rabada after he miscued a hook.
