Bombay, December 26: In the first test against South Africa, Team India (India vs South Africa 1st test) reached a position of strength. At the end of the first day of play, India’s score is 272/3. KL Rahul (122) and Ajinkya Rahane (40) are undefeated. This is KL Rahul’s seventh century in Test cricket. Rahul marked those centuries in Chennai, Kingston, The Oval, Lord’s, Sydney, Colombo and Centurion, meaning he only marked one century in India and the rest outside India. KL Rahul’s opening record is India’s best. Even Sunil Gavaskar, one of India’s greatest players, couldn’t score a century in South Africa, England, the West Indies and Australia. Sunil Gavaskar scored centuries as an opener in England, the West Indies and Australia, but was banned from playing cricket in South Africa at the time, so he couldn’t play a single test there. Virender Sehwag marked centuries in all four countries, but his only century in South Africa was in middle order. KL Rahul is the third Indian opener to mark a century in 6 countries. Previously, Sunil Gavaskar and Virender Sehwag had set this record. The opening of KL Rahul is the fourth century in the SENA countries, namely South Africa, England, New Zealand and Australia. Only Sunil Gavaskar is ahead of him with 8 centuries. Virender Sehwag, Ravi Shastri and Vinu Mankad opened the sets with 3-3 each.
