First Test, Day One As It Happened: Morkel Gets Kohli To Leave India Reeling At Stumps

BestsellerMagazine.com - CATEGORY News update: TITLE

So far, the gamble has worked for Virat Kohli. The decision to bring Bumrah ahead of established names surprised many but after an indifferent start to the game, Bumrah found his bearings in the post-lunch session. Kohli chose to start the session with Bumrah and Pandya – showing just how much confidence he had in them.

Bumrah kept it outside the off-stump and was generally more accurate. This led to AB de Villiers going for a big shot and leaving a huge gap between bat and pad. The inside edge did the rest. The wicket came against the run of play but it was just the thing India needed.

At the other end, Pandya settled into a good line and length. He hit the deck hard, got some movement and got something extra from the wicket when he bent his back. For a man who hasn’t played too much Test cricket, Pandya seemed to know how to do the right thing.

The umpire’s call saved Faf du Plessis once much to Kohli’s disappointment but then Pandya got his man by inducing a false shot outside the off-stump. It means that India are now into the SA tail.

SA started the session on 107-3 after 26 overs. In 12 overs after the break, the hosts have made their way to 156-5. The session run-rate is 4.08 but it is the wickets that really matter.
