"It was a reality check in terms of not being able to win a Test match for the country on day five when all things were actually set up for a spinner", Ashwin said after bowling 30 overs for under three an over and three wickets to go with it.

"Watching Virat Kohli excluding Shikhar Dhawan for just one Test failure, and Bhuvneshwar for no reason at all, Kohli should drop himself in the third Test at Centurion, if he fails to perform in Centurion", Sehwag told "India TV". While Kohli remained busy, Vijay brought the shutters down and played for the interval, leaving more balls outside off stump and getting right behind the line to defend.

The Indian bowlers toiled manfully on a very hot day, with du Plessis having won the toss and opted to make first use of a track that had grown browner in the days leading up to the Test, and belied the assertions of not having much turn, as well as having plenty of bounce. It took an extraordinary 10 minutes in the last hour of play to completely reverse that as India came roaring back. Kohli has been the only constant in India's Test side since he took over from MS Dhoni in the middle of their series against Australia. His drives through mid-on and mid-off regions against the fuller deliveries were a joy to watch while he was equally punishing against the shorter-deliveries. India removed South Africa's last seven batsmen for just 89 runs.

Markram looked in complete control until his dismissal.

'Deport them': Arpaio departs from Trump on DACA recipients
Arpaio has a very strong likelihood of winning his primary - and losing dramatically once the general election comes along. Last year, after the sheriff was convicted of criminal contempt of court, he became Mr Trump's first pardon as President.

In the 21st over, Dean Elgar (31) was handed a reprieve when Murali Vijay misjudged a catch at the deep backward square leg that went for a boundary and in the same over, Markram smashed two more fours to bring the 50-run opening stand.

Ashwin found some joy instantly on the Centurion track and put Elgar through some uncomfortable moments before lunch. And then, the Indian fielders closed in and this coincided with some utterly ridiculous running from South Africa. Also, two quick wickets after that gave India the edge.

Resuming their innings at 269 for six wickets, the home team was bowled out just before lunch, with Ravichandran Ashwin claiming four wickets for 113 runs.

Markram and Amla kept the runs flowing with a 63-run partnership before Markram was caught behind off the bowling of Ashwin for 94, which came off 150 balls and included 15 boundaries.

Agut beats Del Potro to win Auckland Classic
However, Bautista Agut romped through the first set in 31 minutes as he broke the Argentine three times and produced numerous forehand winners.

In the side, only due to an injury to Saha, Patel's drop proved costly for the visitors as Amla went on to add another 51 runs and was looking good for his 29th Test ton before being run-out.

After the fall of Markram, Amla and du Plessis had formed a solid partnership as it looked like the hosts would end day one for the loss of only two wickets.
