Mayank Agarwal registered his 2d century of the sequence as India ruled the hole day of the second one Check in opposition to South Africa in Pune on Thursday.
The hosts ended the day at 273 for three, with Virat Kohli now not out on 63 and Ajinkya Rahane batting on 18.
Mayank, who scored a double-century in India’s 203-run win within the opening Check, finished every other hundred with a boundary off Vernon Philander to cement his position within the Check crew.
Agarwal and Cheteshwar Pujara (58) stitched in combination a 138-run stand for the second one wicket to secure India’s first innings after Rohit Sharma’s early departure.
Pujara, who was once dropped through Temba Bavuma at ahead brief leg for 0, was once in any case brushed aside through Kagiso Rabada. Faf du Plessis stuck him within the first slip simply earlier than the Tea wreck.
Agarwal and Kohli may upload simply 35 extra runs earlier than the in-form opener become Rabada’s 3rd sufferer of the day. Agarwal, batting on 108, edged the ball to the South Africa skipper within the slip cordon.
