Bancroft is on five from 36 balls while Khawaja returns tomorrow with 10 runs to his name. The over rate was a bit of a concern today. Even though there was an extra hour of play, only 93 overs were completed, which is three more than a normal six-hour day but five short of the number teams were supposed to get through as a result of yesterday's wash-out. Australia trail England by runs and will feel their decision to bowl first was justified. Day two is going to be a massive day for both sides.
This has been a positive innings by the Indian keeper.
And on the very next ball Linde cleans him up. Saha goes for This has been an excellent performance by the Indians after losing three early wickets. Runs are easy to come by and Jadeja is looking set for another fifty at least. He needs to be little bit more accurate here and make the batsman play at his deliveries.
But with Jadeja still out there in the middle, India can certainly up the ante.
But finally finds a man at the fence and is out for off balls. He gets to his Excellent innings by Hitman.
India are in complete charge at the moment. And he starts with a maiden over.
Rohit will have to wait for a little more before he gets to his double ton. Rahane is finally dismissed, and South Africa were in desperate need of it.
India have crossed , and the partnership is looking more and more threatening with every passing over. The period has seen a series of boundaries being scored, and to be honest, South Africa has been underwhelming with their bowling so far.
They need to step it up with their lines and lengths, and attempt to break what is looking like a threatening partnership.
Special innings by Rahane in the company of his Mumbai teammate Rohit Sharma at the other end. Exquisite by Rohit Sharma, he just opens the face of his bat and guides the ball down to the third man region for the second boundary of the over from Lungi Ngidi.
Rightly so, as the ball was just clipping the outside of leg-stump and the decision would not have been overturned by the third umpire.
Ajinkya Rahane sends the first ball he faces in the day through to the cover region for a beautiful boundary. Brilliant technique from the Indian batsman as he gets his head over the ball and perfectly executes the shot. He has learnt to meditate on the pitch and bring out his array of shots at just the right moments.
Expect to see more of the same from him on Day 2.
