Centurion - South Africa went into tea with a first innings lead of 100 runs on day two of the first Test at Centurion on Friday. The Proteas were on 236/2 after bowling out India for 136.

Hashim Amla was not out on 50 (78 balls, 3x4, 1x6) and Jacques Kallis on 42.

Graeme Smith (62) and Alviro Petersen (77) shared an opening stand of 111 before Smith got an edge and was caught behind by Mahendra Singh Dhoni off the bowling of Harbhajan Singh.

Harbhajan also took the wicket of Petersen when the batsman got an inside edge onto his pad. The ball went up in the air for Gautam Gambhir to take a simple catch at forward short leg.

Earlier, it took South Africa just three balls to wrap up India's innings.

The lanky fast bowler had Indian captain Dhoni trapped leg before for 33 without adding to the overnight score of 136/9.
