  • South African quick Dale Steyn is back in test cricket after a year off

"It's never nice for Dale because he's just come back from injury", said Steyn's fellow South Africa fast bowler Kagiso Rabada.

His opening partner, Aiden Markram, fell in Kumar's next over, leg before wicket for five, before Hashim Amla, on three, edged an attempted back foot drive and gave Saha a second catch.

South Africa were reeling at 12/3 in 4.5 overs when De Villiers chose to counter attack Bhuvneshwar.

Steyn left the field during India's innings having bowled 17.3 overs and went for scans on a bruised heel.

Just as the Proteas had recovered from losing three wickets in nearly no time at all, De Villiers was clean bowled by debutant Jasprit Bumrah for 65, which came off 84 balls and included 11 boundaries. Before that over, Bhuvneshwar's figures read 4-1-7-3 and that changed to 5-1-24-3 due to the "genius" of the Proteas' number four batsman.

"I just think the class and genius of AB de Villiers and the tenacity of the captain (Du Plessis). that partnership and even just one over changed the game", Benkenstein said.

De Villiers, who had been out of the game for over a year and made his return with jsut concluded Zimbabwe series, scored much needed 65, wherein 44 runs came in boundaries, and helped proteas in posting a respectable 286/10.

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

Counter-attacking batting, led by aggressive half-centuries by De Villiers and captain Faf du Plessis, and some wayward bowling by India enabled South Africa to make a reasonable total on a lively pitch before the South African fast bowlers struck. "When it comes to AB de Villiers, he is the best in the world and you have to be at your best to bowl to him".

Benkenstein, though, said South Africa were "very happy" after their four-man pace attack was unleashed for the last 51 minutes of play.

India ended day one on 28/3 and will continue batting on Saturday at 10:30 local time or 08:30 GMT.
