Bavuma was caught low by a diving Kohli whereas Rishabh Pant had a sensible take to take away his reverse quantity.
At stroke of tea, Bumrah settled his scores with Marco Jansen sending his off-stump for a stroll.
The finest a part of the session was skipper Kohli’s adjustment when he, at second slip, determined to face a number of steps forward of the primary slip after realising that the ball was not carrying in full.
There had been a few instances when Shardul Thakur (6-1-21-0) discovered the skin fringe of Petersen’s bat however on each events, the ball died down in entrance of skipper Kohli at first slip.

The bounce obtainable on the Newlands monitor isn’t as steep because it was on the Centurion and the Wanderers which belong to the Highveld area.
