KL Rahul’s eyes will be on the double century on day two, larger entries than Rahane expected.

The first test match between India and South Africa is played at Centurion. By winning the toss on the first day, Captain Virat Kohli decided to hit. Starters Mayank Agarwal and KL Rahul got India off to a great start. Mayank was fired for 60, while KL Rahul came back undefeated with 122 on the first day and Ajinkya Rahane scored 40 runs. Kohli chipped in 35 runs, while Cheteshwar Pujara returned to the pavilion without opening an account. The first day it was in Rahul’s name.

KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal made a century-long partnership in the early entries. During this, Mayank completed its half century. Together they formed a 117-race partnership. Mayank came out after scoring 60 runs. Both hitters have made a century-long partnership as starters on South African soil after 11 years. In early 2010, Gautam Gambhir and Virender Sehwag had an opening partnership of 137 races at Centurion. However, Sehwag and Gambhir did this feat in the second inning of the match.

The first day was completely dominated by the Indian batsmen and the South African bowlers found themselves struggling. On behalf of the opposition team, Lungi Ngidi took three wickets for 45 runs in 17 overs. Other than him, none of the African bowlers could succeed in taking wickets. Kagiso Rabada gave 51 runs in 20 overs, but didn’t hit a wicket.
