India were 202/0 in 59.1 overs when rain forced early tea, and subsequent abandonment of the day's play.

While South Africa bowlers did trouble the India openers on a few occasions in the first session, they seemed toothless in the second session where Rohit and Agarwal scored at a brisk rate.
Rohit, who got to his fifty before lunch, shifted gears and was particularly harsh on the spinners.
He hammered off-spinner Dane Piedt for successive sixes over deep midwicket to get into the nineties before completing his fourth Test century with a single off debutant Senuran Muthusamy.
The entire dressing room, including skipper Virat Kohli, stood up to laud Rohit's feat.
Agarwal too looked assured at the crease and played his shots.
Early into the afternoon session, he brought up his fifty with a six over extra cover off Keshav Maharaj.
Clouds gathered over the stadium towards the end of the second session and thunderstorms forced the umpires to take the tea break eight minutes before scheduled time. No play was possible in the final session, giving Faf du Plessis and Co some respite.Related Articles:-
