Ngidi takes six as Proteas bowl out India


South Africa seamer Lungi Ngidi took six wickets as the home side ripped through India’s batting line-up on the third morning of the first Test to bowl the visitors out for 327 in their first innings.

In reply, the hosts were 1-21 at lunch with opener Aiden Markram (nine not out) and Keegan Petersen (11) at the crease in an extended afternoon session after rain washed out the entire second day at Centurion Park.

South Africa captain Dean Elgar (1) was the batsman dismissed on a wicket that has quickened up considerably after a slow first day. He edged India seamer Jasprit Bumrah to wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant.

India had resumed on 3-272, but with the sun shining the wicket livened up and Ngidi (6-71) and Kagiso Rabada (3-72) took full advantage.

India opener KL Rahul could only add a single run to his score before he was the first man out for 123.

It became a procession after that as the tourists lost their last seven wickets for the addition of just 55 runs in 15.3 overs.

Ngidi’s career-best figures in Tests are 6-39 on debut against India at Centurion Park in 2018.
