Aiden Markram has dealt in boundaries to help South Africa off to a promising start. There have been a few edges but nothing had carried to the hands of the Indian fielders as South Africa went into the Tea break at 34/0. However, Shardul Thakur, staying true to his reputation of a partnership breaker, got three consecutive deliveries to tail into Markram and finally had him leg-before with the third. India have drawn first blood at 47/1 after 10 overs, bringing to the crease the half-centurion from the first innings, Keegan Petersen.
