Centurion: The first Test match of the three-Test series between India and South Africa is being played at Centurion. Captain Virat Kohli won the toss and elected to bat first. The Indian openers have vindicated his decision. Team India’s opening pair quickly made runs in fashion. Star batsman KL Rahul has caught everyone’s eye by scoring a brilliant century. He was present at the not out crease after scoring 122 runs. Now he has a chance to make history in South Africa.
In the first Test match against South Africa, KL Rahul scored a stormy century. He hit 122 off 248 balls, including 17 fours and a six. Rahul strokes around the ground. The South African bowlers could not stop anywhere in front of his explosive innings. Rahul’s classic batting has won everyone’s heart. India are heading for a big score due to his fiery innings. If Rahul scores a double century on the second day of today’s match, he will be the first batsman in South Africa to score a double century. The Indian team has given more than one batsman to the world, but no one has scored a double century on South African soil. Even legends like Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and Rahul Dravid could not achieve this feat.
The South African pitch is always conducive to fast bowlers. In such a situation, batting there is not easy at all. Sachin Tendulkar, one of the best batsmen in the world, scored 189 runs in Cape Town against South Africa. At the same time, captain Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara scored 153 runs. There is a lot of depth in the batting of the Indian team.
