South Africa's pace attack steamrolled India's lower order to bowl out the tourists for 280 runs in their first innings, on day two of the opening Test at the Wanderers on Thursday.

India added only 25 runs to their overnight score, after resuming on 255/5 in overcast conditions.

Ajinkya Rahane and MS Dhoni got off to a slow start before seamers Vernon Philander and Morne Morkel combined to grab five wickets in the space of four overs.

Morkel had Dhoni caught behind for 19 and Philander removed Rahane, playing only his second Test, in the next over for 47 runs.

The duo then tore through the tail, with Philander taking 4/61 and Morkel returning 3/34.
