India vs South Africa, 3rd Test, Day 1 Live Updates: Indian captain Virat Kohli is going solid in the third Test against South Africa as he reached his half century at the Newlands Stadium in Cape Town. However, it was another failure from India’s top-order batters. Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane and Rishabh Pant failed to convert their good starts to big knocks yet again.  However, Pujara played a good cameo with Kohli for a 59-run third-wicket stand. For South Africa, Marco Jansen is the most successful bowler so far with his three wickets while Rabada got two and Duanne Olivier picked one. (LIVE SCORECARD)
