Ahmedabad, April 3 (IANS) South Africa were one run for no loss at lunch in reply to India’s paltry first-innings’ 76 on the opening day of the second Test at the Sardar Patel Stadium in Motera near here Thursday. Captain Graeme Smith was batting on one and Neil McKenzie was yet to open his account at the interval. Earlier, fast bowler Dale Steyn snared five wickets while only two batsmen - Irfan Pathan (21) and Mahendra Singh Dhoni (14) - managed double-digit scores after captain Anil Kumble won the toss and decided to bat. Speedsters Makhaya Ntini bagged three wickets and Morne Morkel two.

The first Test in Chennai had ended in a draw.
