Hashim Amla rode the life given to him by Parthiv Patel on 30 to score his 36th Test fifty as South Africa look poised for a big first innings after winning the toss. Driving, punching and flicking any delivery that was going down leg, Amla meant business right from the start. After pushing Jasprit Bumrah through mid-on for a boundary, Amla stepped out to Ashwin and got a boundary through mid-on. Two balls after flicking Ashwin for another boundary, Amla tried flicking Ishant again. On 30 then, Amla tried to ensure India got no more chance.
