Innings break, 3.24 pm: South Africa have been dismissed for 540, an excellent performance after winning the toss. The pitch is rather flat but India's batsmen will know the importance of matching South Africa's score in the first innings. I'll be back in ten minutes, when Steyn and Morkel have a crack at the Indian top order. There's a fair bit of play left, 25 overs in fact, after deducting two for the change of innings.
