IND vs SA 1st Test Day 1 Score Updates: KL Rahul is batting on 122 runs in the first innings.© AFP
India vs South Africa 1st Test Live Score: KL Rahul and Ajinkya Rahane began India’s quest to get a first innings score on a bright and sunny day at the SuperSport Park in Centurion. It promises to be rain-free Day 3 of the first Test match today. The second day was washed out without a ball being bowled making this almost like a four-day event. Some of the lost overs are likely to made up in the remaining three days if light and weather permits but it is sure to have an impact on the approach of players. Keeping in mind the weather forecasts of the fifth day, Indian batters in particular, will look to perhaps get to a 400-plus total as early as possible and have a crack at South Africa. For South Africa, this is a golden opportunity to make a comeback in the match. If the likes of Lungi Ngidi and Kagiso Rabada can make use of the damp conditions – the pitch was under covers for the large part of Monday – then we might be in for an interesting Test match.
