Hosts India are aiming to clinch a record 11th home series win on the bounce as they lock horns with South Africa in the second and penultimate Test at Pune.
There was an early blow for India after skipper Virat Kohli won the toss and elected to bat first with Rohit Sharma falling early. The twin centurion from the first Test’s stay at the crease was a short one after Kagiso Rabada forced him to edge a delivery into the hands of Quinton de Kock.
India have made one change to their playing XI from the first Test with pacer Umesh Yadav coming in for Hanuma Vihari. The Proteas, too, have made a solitary change by swapping Dane Piedt for pacer Anrich Nortje.
Will the hosts be able to extend their home dominance or will South Africa find a way to bounce back in the three-match series? Follow the ball-by-ball LIVE action from Pune below to stay updated.
