Relentless Mohammad Siraj bounces out Janneman Malan


Aryan Surana

Janneman Malan lined up for a big pull shot but couldn't clear Avesh Khan at deep square leg. Mohammed Siraj's intensity has not dropped despite getting creamed for a couple of boundaries and he's mixed up his lengths beautifully to hurt South Africa. All three of Malan's fours came off the pacer, who has the last laugh. South Africa are 25 for 2.

Earlier, South Africa lost their first wicket in the third over after India unhesitatingly opted to field first. He saw the width on offer and went after it, but the sogginess of the pitch meant that the extra bounce led to an edge that was easily taken at backward point by Avesh.
