IND vs SA 1st Test Match: South Africa took eight wickets to reduce India’s total to 208 runs at the end of the rain-affected first day of the opening Test of the two-match Test series. In the third session, play was halted after the 59th over due to bad light and then further play was not possible due to rain. At that time wicketkeeper batsman KL Rahul was playing after scoring 70 runs in 105 balls. Mohammad Siraj (0 runs) was present with him at the crease.

KL Rahul’s great feat in South Africa

Except KL Rahul, all the Indian batsmen have flopped in the Centurion Test so far. No batsman could spend much time at the crease. But KL Rahul is holding one end. Now he will be expected to bat in the same manner on the second day as well. Rahul made a big record in his name on the very first day of the match. He did something which only two Indian players could do before.

Joined this special club

Let us tell you that KL Rahul is playing as a wicketkeeper batsman for the first time in Test. Before this, he has played as a wicketkeeper batsman in ODI and T20. With this, he has become the third Indian wicketkeeper batsman to play an innings of 50+ runs outside India as a wicketkeeper batsman in all three formats. Earlier, only MS Dhoni and Rishabh Pant could achieve this feat.

These star batsmen of Team India were flops

Apart from KL Rahul, no Indian batsman could touch the 40-run mark in this innings. Opener Rohit Sharma could play only 5 runs and Yashasvi Jaiswal could play only 17 runs. After this, Shubman Gill also returned to the pavilion after scoring 2 runs. Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer got a good start but could not score big. Virat Kohli was out after scoring 38 runs and Shreyas Iyer was out after scoring 31 runs.
