Pacer Mohammed Siraj bagged his maiden 10-wicket haul as India A beat South Africa A by a comprehensive innings and 30 runs after stiff resistance from the middle order on the final day of the first 'Test'.
After his 5 for 56 in the first innings, Siraj took 5 for 73 in the second innings as South Africa A were all out for 308 in 128.5 overs.
However, it was a toil for the India A bowlers on the final day as it took them 88.5 overs to get the final six wickets.
It was Rajneesh Gurbani (2/45 in 15 overs), who quickly sent back Zubayr Hamza (63) to reduce the Proteas to 121 for 5.
However, Rudi Second (94) and Shaun von Berg (50) added 119 runs for the sixth wicket but more importantly frustrated the home team for more than 50 overs.
Once Von Berg was caught by Ravikumar Samarth off Gurbani's bowling, India A came back into the game.
Finally, India got Second trapped leg before by Yuzvendra Chahal (1/85 in 31 overs) but it took another 13 overs to wrap up the match.
The trio of Siraj (10/128), Gurbani (4/92) and Navdeep Saini (3/71) took 17 out of the 20 wickets on a flat Chinnaswamy track.
