Ind vs SA, 1st Test: South Africa bowled out for 130 in second innings

Yet, while that wicket carried the greater significance in terms of sentiment, the more important dismissal in the context of an already engrossing contest came when Kohli nicked Morkel behind, swinging the day firmly in favour of South Africa, who can now attack the middle order with gusto on day two.

"If India surprised with their choice of playing XI for the first Test â€" giving Bumrah the Test debut and choosing Rohit Sharma ahead of Ajinkya Rahane â€" they had a bigger surprise in store for South Africa as Bhuvneshwar gave India a sensational start.

Kumar's exploitation of the swing and seam movement on a green Newlands pitch left South Africa - which gambled and chose to bat first in the series-opener - on 230-7 at tea.

South Africa's star pacer Dale Steyn is unlikely to bowl further in the ongoing first Test against India at Newlands, Cape Town.

Du Plessis' exit was greeted by a running, fist-pumping celebration by India captain Virat Kohli.

Injured Dale Steyn may miss rest of Test series

"They are a quality bowling attack and at that stage I was sitting there wondering how we were going to score a run", said South African batting coach Dale Benkenstein. "That partnership got us back in the game and brought belief back in the change room".

Bhuvneshwar, who finished with 4/87, too agreed that De Villiers took the game away from India.

According to news daily, Mid-Day, Azharuddin was quoted saying, "This is a golden opportunity to play attacking cricket and the reason is very simple - India has a strong pace bowling attack and they have been bowling well".

Kumar took a wicket in each of his opening three overs, as he snagged opener Dean Elgar with the third ball of the day and then had Aiden Markram and Hashim Amla dismissed cheaply in the next two overs.

But India's hopes of earning a first-innings lead were dented as Murali Vijay (1) fell to Vernon Philander and Shikhar Dhawan (16) was caught and bowled by Steyn as the quick finally resumed a Test career derailed by injury. The De Villiers-Du Plessis partnership was followed by a sixth wicket stand of 60 off 54 balls from Quinton de Kock and Philander, and there were useful contributions from the tailenders.
