It’s a perfect start for the hosts as after winning the toss, India elected to bat first. The first session was dominated by the Indian batsmen. Mayank Agarwal also displayed immense maturity and played with extreme poise. Full marks to Kagiso Rabada and Vernon Philander who bowled both ways with the new ball and troubled the openers.
