It was not a pretty sight when South Africa’s fast bowler Kagiso Rabada had a heated argument with wicket-keeper Quinton de Kock. Rabada came charging towards Quinton de Kock in the overs break when South African skipper Faf du Plessis came in between the two players to cool things off.
Kagiso Rabada had thrown the ball back to keeper but his accuracy was wayward. Consequently, it went for overthrow runs which didn’t please Quinton de Kock. Thus, there was a heated argument between the two players.
It was not a pretty sight.
The South African team has been in the field for almost two days and the frustrations have been palpable for all the players. Kagiso Rabada was the pick of the South African bowlers on day one as he had scalped three wickets.
On the other hand, Quinton de Kock had scored a fine knock of 111 in the first innings of the first Test match. de Kock had also led the Proteas in the T20I series which the visitors drew 1-1. The southpaw batsman was also awarded the Man of the series as he had scored two half-centuries in the three-match series.
Meanwhile, India has put their noses in front as they are 473-4 at tea on the second day. Virat Kohli is on the cusp of his seventh double century as the Indian captain batted at the top of his game. Kohli has scored 28 fours in his sublime knock so far.
On the other hand, Ajinkya Rahane gave good support to his captain as he scored a fine knock of 59 runs. Rahana and Kohli added a mammoth alliance of 178 runs for the four-wicket partnership to put India in command.
Earlier on day one, Mayank Agarwal continued his good form going as he scored a sublime knock of 108 runs. Pujara also scored a handy knock of 58 runs.
