KL Rahul’s impressive half-century steers India to 208/8 on a rain-interrupted Day 1 against South Africa in the 1st Test. Kagiso Rabada’s five-wicket spell posed challenges for India, leading to a gripping contest in Centurion.

First Test between India and South Africa in Centurion, KL Rahul‘s remarkable display salvaged India to a total of 208/8 on Day 1, interrupted by inclement weather. Despite the challenge posed by Kagiso Rabada‘s exceptional five-wicket haul for South Africa, Rahul’s brilliant half-century provided a crucial backbone to India’s innings.

The day witnessed a dramatic turn as bad light and heavy rain halted the play after Rahul’s exceptional performance. Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer showed promise, yet fell prey to Rabada’s relentless bowling prowess. Nandre Burgers secured a couple of wickets, complemented by Marco Jansen‘s contribution with one wicket for South Africa.

The match commenced with South Africa winning the toss and opting to bowl, setting the stage for an enthralling contest between the two cricketing powerhouses. With play disrupted, anticipation looms large for Day 2 of this gripping encounter.
