Keshav Maharaj’s 3-21, which helped bundle England out for 205, is Khalid Mohidin’s Play of the Day.
The 27-year-old spinner was in fine form on a pitch which was said to be conducive for spin, striking shortly before tea to swing momentum in the Proteas’ favour.
His first wicket was far from pleasing on the eye, as the ball caught Ben Stokes’ (0) inside edge, looped up off the pad and through to Quinton de Kock. The ball bobbled out of his gloves and off his shoulder, but the young keeper kept his concentration to hold on to his second attempt.
His second scalp was pure class, with Bairstow’s eye in, on a gritty 45 shortly before tea. The wicketkeeper-batsman was beaten by the spin as the ball drifted past his outside edge and crashed into the stumps.
His final scalp was crucial to helping Chris Morris clean up the tail. Liam Dawson deflected a flighted delivery to second slip as England were throttled at 199-9.
Morris took the final scalp to bundle the hosts out for 205, as the Proteas took a 130-run lead into their second innings.
