Lungi Ngidi's brilliance saw SA dominate the show as he claimed four scalps. India were reduced to 49/5 before Suryakumar Yadav and Dinesh Karthik added 52 runs. India lost wickets thereafter and nobody managed to put up a fight. 133 was always going to be less but India bowled well, getting three early scalps.
