After a dominant show in Vizag, Team India would be looking to take an unassailable lead in the three-match Test series. The second Test begins on 10 October at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune.
It was a dream performance from India, barring one session. The new opening combo of Rohit Sharma and Mayank Agarwal put in their best performances in the five-day cricket. Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and Mohammad Shami had an excellent outing with the ball.
On the contrary, South Africa had a nightmare day 1 at Vizag but put in a good fight in their first innings, with gritty knocks from Dean Elgar and Quinton de Kock. However, they would expect more from their bowling attack that could not trouble Indians for a longer period.
