South Africa vs India: Virat Kohli guide India to 206-run lead on Day 1 of 3rd Test

India end Day 1 with 206-run lead over South Africa in the third Test against South Africa in Cape Town. At Stumps on Day 1, South Africa were at 17/1 and they lost their captain Dean Elgar early in the first innings. India were bowled out for 223 runs in the first innings where Virat Kohli scored 79 runs and Cheteshwar Pujara returned back to the pavilion after registering 43 runs to his name.

India batting coach Vikram Rathour on Tuesday said that he was impressed with Test skipper Virat Kohli’s discipline on Day 1.

Further talking about Virat, Rathour said: “There are always a few adjustments here and there. No major changes, I do not think when you are playing international cricket, you can make technical adjustments, not any technical changes definitely. Pujara has gone to legside in his stance and that has helped him a little bit.”

“South Africa was very disciplined to Virat initially. He was not getting many balls to drive and pull, this is how he responded. He was looking really good till the point he got out. I mean it is not a conscious thing, it was just a lapse of concentration in the last game when he chased a wide delivery. He played some cover drives today, he picked the right balls.”

Brief Scores: India 223 all out in 77.3 overs (Virat Kohli 79, Cheteshwar Pujara 43, Kagiso Rabada 4-73) vs South Africa 17/1 in 8 overs (Aiden Markram 8 not out, Keshav Maharaj 6 not out; Jasprit Bumrah 1-0).
