India reached tea on the first day of the deciding Test against SA having suffered two more setbacks, but it could have been a lot worse.
They went to tea on 141/4 in their first innings having won the toss with Cheteshwar Pujara (43) and Ajinkya Rahane (9) also making their way back to the pavilion in the middle session.
That placed SA in the pound seat and things could have been even better had India captain Virat Kohli not controversially survived an appeal for caught behind 10 minutes before the break.
Kohli, facing Duanne Olivier, tried to glance a delivery down to fine leg but the ball found its way into the gloves of wicketkeeper Kyle Verreynne.
SA vociferously appealed but it was turned down by umpire Adrian Holdstock. SA decided to take the matter on review.
