Maharaj has a change of ends.

Thu, 03 Oct 2019 02:03:08 pm

DRINKS! The wicket of King Kohli may have raised the South Africans' morale but Rahane and Agarwal have continued to chip away. Dane Piedt to continue bowling after the Drinks break. It will be interesting to see what will be the approach of the Proteas from here on in.

Thu, 03 Oct 2019 01:51:09 pm

SIX! Tossed up on middle and off, Mayank charges down the track and launches it over the head of the bowler for a maximum. Moves to the 190s.

Thu, 03 Oct 2019 01:24:58 pm

OUT! CAUGHT! What happened on that ball? It just hit the deck and paused for a lifetime! Kohli is in disbelief as he sees Muthusamy take the easiest of catches that he will get in his life. Muthusamy bowls this one short and on middle and off, Kohli looks to tuck this one towards the leg side but is early into the shot due to the ball sticking onto the surface. It takes the leading edge of Kohli's bat and goes straight back towards Muthusamy who takes a dolly. He gets the wicket of the Indian skipper as he departs for 20 off 40 balls.

Thu, 03 Oct 2019 01:24:47 pm

SIX! 50 partnership for Agarwal and Kohli! Floated on middle and off, Agarwal clears his front leg and launches this one down the ground, over the bowler's head for a maximum.

Thu, 03 Oct 2019 12:28:45 pm

FOUR! King Kohli on song now! This one is fuller and just outside the off pole line, Kohli gets on the front foot and creams this one through mid off for his first boundary of the innings.

Thu, 03 Oct 2019 12:28:35 pm

FOUR! One slightly bad ball and Agarwal pounces! Full and wide outside off, Agarwal just leans into the drive and caresses it through covers for a boundary.

Thu, 03 Oct 2019 12:26:14 pm

King Kohli walks out to bat. In when the match is going through a transitional phase. How much can the skipper and Agarwal build up on the the platform already set? Stay tuned to find out...

Thu, 03 Oct 2019 12:26:04 pm

OUT! TIMBER! WHAT A START! What a start to the second session by Vernon Philander and the off stump has gone for a spin! Philander pitches this one on the middle and off pole line. It swings away after pitching, beating the outside edge of Pujara's bat and hits the top of off pole as the stump goes cartwheeling. Philander has struck right after the Lunch break and Pujara walks back to the pavilion scoring just 6 runs. This is the 23rd time that Pujara has been bowled in Test matches. A way back for the Proteas?

Thu, 03 Oct 2019 12:25:55 pm

We are back for the second session of the day! Mayank Agarwal and Cheteshwar Pujara make their way out to the middle along with the South African players. Cheteshwar Pujara will be on strike for the next over facing Vernon Philander.

Thu, 03 Oct 2019 11:06:06 am

300 UP FOR INDIA! What a partnership by Sharma and Agarwal as they have just battered the South African bowling lineup. Flighted delivery on off, Mayank drives this towards mid off and takes a single. These two have just taken the game away from South Africa and it will be very difficult for the visitors to make a comeback.

Thu, 03 Oct 2019 11:05:45 am

FOUR! Reverse sweep by Agarwal and beautifully executed!

Thu, 03 Oct 2019 10:39:59 am

DRINKS! Domination by India! They are yet to lose a wicket from almost three sessions of play and look to be going strong. De Kock did drop a catch to get Rohit Sharma out earlier in the day but apart from that, it has been the Men In Blue all along. The onus looked to be on Kagiso Rabada and Keshav Maharaj coming into the match but it is Vernon Philander who has troubled the Indian batters the most.

Thu, 03 Oct 2019 10:25:01 am

FOUR! Back-to-back boundaries for Rohit here! Maharaj bowls a full delivery on middle, Rohit plays a lovely sweep shot towards the square leg region for another boundary.

CENTURY! Maiden century for Mayank in Tests! Flighted delivery around off, Mayank gets an outside edge towards the third man region for a single to get to his hundred. Excellent innings this fromthe opener. Since his debut, he has shown that he belongs to this level.

Thu, 03 Oct 2019 10:06:20 am

MISFIELD AND FOUR! On the pads of Rohit, he flicks it towards mid-wicket. The fielder is lazy to get down and lets it through him and the ball reaches the fence. South Africa cannot afford this!

Thu, 03 Oct 2019 09:50:33 am

FOUR! Beautifully played. Full delivery on the pads, Rohit plays a flick and lofts this over the mid-wicket fielder for a boundary. Rohit plays this shot a lot in ODIs and is continuing in Tests as well.

LIVE Cricket Score


India's newest Test opener, Rohit Sharma, celebrated his promotion with a sparkling century against South Africa during the first Test in Visakhapatnam. The century was Rohit's fourth in Tests and one which led India to a position of dominance at 202 without loss before bad light, followed by heavy rain forced early stumps on Day 1. Rohit smacked 12 boundaries and five sixes, bringing up the three-figure digit off 154 balls.
One over before tea, the umpires decided that the light wasn't good enough to continue play. Shortly after the players returned to the dressing rooms, it began pouring down in Vizag. The covers were brought on, covering most of the ground but after one hour of constant rain, play was called off almost 90 minutes before the scheduled close of play.
Rohit emerged as the star for India. He began his knock with a boundary off the second ball a cut that raced past the vacant gully region. He and fellow opener Mayank Agarwal played out the new ball, which offered some initial movement for the South Africa pacers. However, once the ball lost its shine, Rohit took control, batting with an impressive control rate of more than 90 percent and bringing up a half-century off 84 balls.
Rohit gave spinners the stick, scoring all his sixes against them. His first two sixes came off the bowling of Keshav Maharaj and Dane Piedt. On 81, Rohit waded back-to-back sixes off Piedt to enter the 90s. With a cut, Rohit came back for a double to become only the fourth Indian batsman to score a century in his first Test as opener, joining Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul and Prithvi Shaw.
It's been the perfect two sessions for India ever since Virat Kohli won the toss and opted to bat first on a surface that is likely to deteriorate quickly. Rohit and Agarwal also recorded India's first century-plus stand in Tests in 24 innings since their one-off Test against Afghanistan in June 2018. The two also added India's first 200-run stand for the opening wicket in 81 innings Dhawan and Murali Vijay had done so against Bangladesh in Fatullah in 2015.
This was also Rohit's sixth consecutive fifty-plus score in India in addition to all four his centuries coming on home soil. His partner Agarwal is 14 short of a maiden hundred, batting on 84 off 183 balls with 11 boundaries and two sixes.
