    Score, 1st Test Day 1: Bhuvneshwar On Fire As Proteas Lose 3 Early Wickets

    Virat Kohli-led Team India will aim to begin their three-match Test series on a positive note when they take on the formidable South Africa at Newlands, Cape Town on Friday.

    Live Score, India vs South Africa: The match will be played at Newlands, Cape Town.

    This series will Test India's class and character on the harder tracks of Cape Town, Centurion and Johannesburg. The Newlands pitch at Cape Town, however, could well be a blessing in disguise for India. While it will be alien from anything they have played on for the last year or so, at least the lack of water, as has been reported in the media, has led to a little less irrigation of the square, and may well provide Virat Kohli and his boys with conditions closest to home.

    India's bowling may well depend on how the likes of Mohammad Shami, Ishant Sharma and Bhuvaneswar Kumar do since they are carded to be the ones to make the final XI in the 1st Test. However, the onus, eventually, may still fall on Ravichandran Ashwin to deliver. Especially if India bat first. With Ravindra Jadeja on the doubtful list, Ashwin will have to handle the spin department in a series which could also well make or break for the off-spinner. The batting will also be tested, but none of them is really threatened in terms of being dropped from the team since they all seem to have Kohli's backing. Ashwin, on the other hand, may not necessarily do so.
