DURBAN, South Africa (AP) -- Dale Steyn struck straight away on the final day as South Africa took five wickets before lunch Monday to rapidly reduce India to 173-7 in the second test and close in on a series victory in Jacques Kallis' final match.

Steyn removed Virat Kohli first ball of the day -- to a questionable decision by umpire Rod Tucker -- and bowled Cheteshwar Pujara for 32 in the third over as India's two key batsmen departed early.

India was seven runs ahead of South Africa's first-innings total of 500 at lunch as Vernon Philander also dismissed Rohit Sharma lbw for 25, and spinner Robin Peterson sent captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja back.

Steyn's first delivery appeared to come off Kohli's upper arm but he was given out caught behind.
