The first session of Day Two of the first Test between South Africa and India is in danger of being washed out due to inclement weather in Centurion.

The weather forecast did predict rains on Day Two and Five of the Test. But so far, on Monday, the rain has been playing hide and seek, keeping the groundstaff at the SuperSport Park on their feet. It was also decided that Lunch will be now taken at 11:30am local time (3pm IST).

India will resume the second day on 272 for three, with KL Rahul on 122 and Ajinkya Rahane on 40. Lungi Ngidi picked all the three wickets that fell on the opening day.
