On the day when Indian batsmen dominated the show, Umesh Yadav proved that the wicket was not a batting paradise. Bowling with the new ball in the final session of Day 2, Yadav, who was roped in the squad as a replacement of injured Jasprit Bumrah, removed both the SoutH African openers cheaply, pushing the visitors in the backfoot right from the word go.
