Cheteshwar Pujara yet again struggled to get some runs under his belt, managing a pedestrian 30-ball 3, as he eventually fell to Duanne Olivier. Looking to press forward and playing a lifter with low hands proved to be the under-fire batter’s undoing. India teetered further as Ajinkya Rahane departed first ball, guiding a length delivery to third slip as he handed Olivier his 50th Test scalp. Both Rahul and Vihari were unbeaten at the break, with plenty of hard work ahead of them in order to resurrect India’s innings.
