Jansen also ended the stand between Kohli and Pant, having the wicketkeeper caught by Keegan Petersen at gully.

The teams are locked at 1-1 in the three-match series after South Africa won the second Test in Johannesburg by seven wickets.

The Indian bowlers had eight overs before the close to get at the South African openers.

Bumrah responded in superb style bowling four maidens and picking up the crucial wicket of Elgar.

The South African captain, who guided his team to victory in Johannesburg last week with a defiant 96 not out, made only three before he was forced onto the back foot and edged Bumrah to Pujara at first slip.
