Cape Town: India lost three wickets for 28 runs in their first innings after bowling out South Africa for 286 on the opening day of their first cricket Test at Newlands here on Friday.
Murali Vijay (1), Shikhar Dhawan (16) and captain Virat Kohli (5) all lost their wickets within 11 overs of play of the Indian innings.
At stumps, No.3 Cheteshwar Pujara (5 batting) and Rohit Sharma (5 batting) were at the crease when the umpires called it a day.
Paceman Vernon Philander started the proceedings for the hosts, drawing first blood with the scalp of opener Murali Vijay caught by Dean Elgar before Dale Steyn dismissed Dhawan, returning with a catch on his own bowling .
Kohli was the next man to be back in the hut, chasing a delivery around the sixth stump line but nicked it behind for stumper Quinton de Kock to complete the proceedings.
Earlier, electing to bat after winning the toss, South Africa suffered early reverses, caused by seamer Bhuvneshwar Kumar (4/87) but AB de Villiers (65) and skipper Faf du Plessis (62) helped the hosts recover.
However, after Virat Kohli got out at 5 runs, Twitterati started trolling Bollywood actress Anuskha Sharma.
Here are the few reactions of Twitterati.
Kohli's honeymoon is now officially over.! #SAvIND
