Career best from Philander knocks over India: 1st Test (Cape Town)

Paceman Vernon Philander's career-best six for 42 guided South Africa to a 72-run victory over India.

Eighteen wickets fell on the fourth and final day as India failed to chase down 208.

Earlier, Bhuvneshwar Kumar gave India a dream start by removing the top 3 South African batsmen cheaply after South Africa won the toss.

Faf du Plessis and AB de Villiers steadied the Proteas as they stitched together a massive 114-run partnership as South Africa posted 286.

Hardik Pandya scored a brilliant 93 to help India reach a respectable 209 in the first innings.

South Africa 286 (De Villiers 65, Du Plessis 62, Bhuvneshwar 4-87) and 130 (Shami 3-28, Bumrah 3-39) beat India 209 (Pandya 93, Philander 3-33, Rabada 3-34) and 135 (Philander 6-42) by 72 runs.
