Vernon Philander helped South Africa fight back from a batting collapse on day two of the first Test with India.

The Proteas slipped from 130-1 to 145-6 in Johannesburg before an unbeaten 48 from Philander saw them recover to 213-6 at the close - 67 runs behind.

Ishant Sharma (3-64) and Mohammed Shami (2-48) did the damage for India.

Philander had earlier moved on to 99 Test wickets as he finished the pick of South Africa's bowling attack with 4-61 as India were dismissed for 280.
