India Vs SA: Neck To Neck Battle:- India's tour of South Africa had good buzz after months and cricket lovers have been eagerly waiting for the big battle. The first test between the top countries started yesterday in Newlands. South Africa managed to get 286 on board and was all out after which Indians started off with a poor start. They lost three wickets in no time and just got 28 on board by the end of the day. Indians need to perform exceptional on the crucial second day to defend South Africa in the first test.
Cheteshwar Pujara (5*) and Rohit Sharma (0*) were batting after the day has been called off. India lost Murali Vijay, Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli. Now the biggest question is that if Indian batting line up can stand before the fearsome pace of Steyn, Philander, Rabada and Morkel. South Africans too started off badly with 12/3 after which a solid knock by AB de Villiers (65) and Du Plessis (62) made them turn strong. Indian pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar managed to get 4/87.
