India v South Africa: Mayank Agarwal hits another century

Rain is expected to dampen spirits in the second Test match

India opener Mayank Agarwal was once again class with the bat against South Africa in the ongoing Test series in Pune on Thursday.

Cape Town - The first session of day two in the second Test on Friday, which will begin with Indian captain and maestro stroke-player Virat Kohli still at the crease in Pune, could well determine whether South Africa remain alive for suitably longer in the series.

Virat Kohli became the second Indian skipper to lead the team in 50 Test matches.

The one-half of India's most successful spin pair in white-ball cricket, Yuzvendra Chahal is now in peak form on social media, so much so that he is giving even the likes of Kiwi all-rounder Jimmy Neesham a run for their money with his humour.

Agarwal, 28, said he was thrilled with his performance, while saying his side should aim for a 500-run first innings. Pujara, 58, fell soon after smashing his fifty in the 51st over and India was reduced to 163/2.

There has yet to be any official statement from Errol Spence Jr's team or confirmed reports from the police about the accident. Although now in the intensive care unit and listed in serious condition, he is expected to survive these injuries.

Rabada had a good start to his day in the 2nd Test and was the only bowler to take wickets for his side during full day game.

Graeme Smith, Laxman's South African counterpart on the analysis show, said, "In general, I thought South Africa were quite negative today".

The morning's only wicket went to Kagiso Rabada, who's best delivery of the series so far, bounced slight more than Rohit Sharma anticipated, found the outside edge with Quinton de Kock taking an easy catch. When he was finally introduced, he struck immediately to get Cheteshwar Pujara out. Pujara, who was dropped by Temba Bavuma before he scored, hit a six and nine fours.

India made one change, bringing in pace bowler Umesh Yadav in place of batsman Hanuma Vihari. He surpassed Ganguly, who captained India in 49 Tests. Nortje replaced spinner Dane Piedt in the XI, while fast bowler Lungi Ngidi went overlooked.
