Virat Kohli dismissed by Kagiso Rabada after scoring a pristine 38 on day 1:
Meanwhile, Kohli was on track for a daddy hundred on day 1 of the opening Test, but Kagiso Rabada's unplayable delivery got the better of him. Nevertheless, the former Indian captain's partnership of 68 with Shreyas Iyer was quite vital in the tourists reaching 208-8 at stumps.
Earlier on day 1, Temba Bavuma had won the toss and inserted India into bat. Kagiso Rabada got the first breakthrough for the Proteas, getting rid of Rohit Sharma, who mistimed a pull. Debutant Shane Burger picked up the next two scalps of Yashasvi Jaiswal and Shubman Gill.
The highlight of day 3 was KL Rahul scoring a century and taking the visitors to 245 from a precarious position of 120-6. Mohammed Siraj struck for India first, producing an outside edge off Aiden Markram's bat as Rahul took a simple catch behind the stumps.
