Meanwhile, the Tamil Nadu opener Abhinav Mukund felt for the youngster.

The comeback bowler Umesh Yadav sent Aiden Markram right in the second over while Dean Elgar has got rough luck when he dragged Umesh Yadav on to his stumps. Things looked even worse when Mohammed Shami got nick off Temba Bavuma.
