India vs South Africa 1st Test Live Score: The start of play on Day 2 of the first Test match between South Africa and India at the SuperSport Park in Centurion has been delayed due to rain. On Day 1, KL Rahul scored a brilliant century under challenging conditions and is unbeaten on 122 while Ajinkya Rahane (40) has looked in fine touch. South Africa, on the to other hand, need to strike early and stop India from driving home the advantage. The Centurion pitch generally starts to quicken up bit on the second day and who better than Kagiso Rabada exploit it. Day 1 belonged to India completely, that’s something the fans are not used to on the first day of an overseas tour. They reached 272 for 3 at sumps. Rahul and Mayank Agarwal (60) built a solid foundation with 117-run opening stand which was followed up by useful partnerships between Rahul and Kohli (35) and then an unbeaten stand Rahul and Rahane. The highlight of the day was Rahul, who became the first Indian opener Wasim Jaffer to score a Test hundred on South African soil. (LIVE SCORECARD)
