Hint of turn there for Keshav Maharaj. Causes problems straightaway. This is slower through the air, it lands on off and then turns away a little. Agarwal is rooted to his crease, in the end, he looks to poke at it. Gets beaten.

Pitch report: No grass on it. On day 1, it should be a good surface to bat on. There are these cracks which will open up. Those areas will chip away as more and more deliveries land on them. Batting won't be easy on the evening of day 3. There will be more in it for the spinners from day 2 once the sun comes out. Any captain winning the toss will want to bat first.

Wed, 02 Oct 2019 09:03:03 am

TOSS: India win toss and opt to bat first. No-brainer is what Virat Kohli says about the winning the toss. Faf du Plessis too echoes the same sentiment.

Hello and welcome to our live coverage of the 1st Test between India and South Africa at Vizag. Even though India's home season started with the three-match T20I series, the really deal is this - Kagiso Rabada vs Rohit Sharma, Lungi Ngidi vs Cheteshwar Pujara, Vernon Philander vs Virat Kohli, Keshav Maharaj vs Ajinkya Rahane - Mohammad Shami vs Aiden Markram, Ishant Sharma vs Deam Elgar - Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin vs Temba Bavuma, Zubayr Hamza, Faf Du Plessis


IND vs SA 1st Test Match Live Cricket Score and Updates from ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium, Visakhapatnam: India will aim to begin their home season on a high when they take on South Africa in the first Test of the three-match series beginning on Wednesday at the ACA-VDCA Stadium. This will be India's first big test in the ongoing ICC World Test Championship. Virat Kohli's men would be full of confidence after they consolidated their position as the No.1 side with a 2-0 series whitewash in West Indies, which also saw them earn their first points in the WTC.
They would go into the series as undeniable favourites considering their enviable record at home since 2012-13. However, the upcoming series against the Proteas will not be an easy one. The quality of the South African side, despite their inexperience, was visible in the T20I series which ended in a draw. And with the likes of Faf du Plessis coming into the line-up, the hosts can be rest assured to face stiff competition from the Proteas.
