After losing the first two wickets very early, Pujara and Kohli showed some fight against South Africa’s bowling attack which includes the likes of Morne Morkel, Vernon Philander, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, and Andile Phehlukwayo. The bowlers managed to move the ball a lot at the track which created a problem for the batsmen to counter them. While Rabada took three wickets yesterday, Morkel, Philander, and Phehlukwayo got two each.
Murali Vijay and KL Rahul opened India’s innings but again failed to give a good start and both returned to the pavilion without troubling their opponents much. Pujara and Kohli showed patience and scored their half-centuries which helped the side put 187 runs as a total. Ajinkya Rahane got a chance to play his first Test in the series but he failed to utilize the opportunity as he returned back after adding only 9 runs to the team’s total.
AB de Villiers or Virat Kohli - who will score more runs?
