The 'pitch talk' dominated the start of the second Test between India (IND) and South Africa (SA) at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Pune. It lent an air of uncertainty, bringing back the memories of that 2017 game against Australia, even as Virat Kohli & Co look to wrap up the series. A win and India will set the record for most consecutive Test series victories at home. Entered Mayank Agarwal, who matched Virender Sehwag's nearly decade-old feat of scoring centuries in back-to-back Tests against the Proteas. He was joined by Cheteshwar Pujara, then skipper Kohli himself, as India played freely to take the opening day honours.

Rohit Sharma was conspicuous in his walk, raising the new ball doubts again. South Africa, as expected, strengthened their pace attack by handing debut to fast bowler Anrich Nortje. But by the draw of bails, the visitors were left grappling with more questions than they would have expected. It seems though that their inherent problem lies in the failure to produce wicket-taking spinners. Maharaj and Muthusamy couldn't make an impact. That left the onus on the pacers, their traditional weapon. And it was one of the pacers, Kagiso Rabada, who stepped up to the plate on Thursday (October 10). It will be fascinating to see how the visitors work their way out on the second day. Pace or spin? For hosts, the plan is simple. Score runs and if possible, declare early and put the scoreboard pressure on the Proteas.
