During the third day of the third Test of the ongoing Indian Tour of South Africa, India’s fast bowler Umesh Yadav bowled a peach of a delivery to dismiss  South Africa captain Faf du Plessis in the very first over.

It all happened in the penultimate delivery of the sixth over when Du Plessis seemed to have no response to a delivery from Yadav that pitched in the middle and off but moved away enough to deceive the batsman.

Coming into batting at No. 4 the last evening, Du Plessis ended his innings by scoring 1 (9). They needed Du Plessis to deliver today, with South Africa already losing their opening batsmen poorly.

Du Plessis was Yadav’s second wicket in this innings after Quinton de Kock (4). The 31-year-old bowler bowled extremely well.

The hosts posted a massive total of 497/9 declared after India’s captain Virat Kohli won the toss and elected to bat. It was the 267-run partnership between opening batsman Rohit Sharma (212) and vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane (115) that put India in dominant position today.
