Pick of the tweets: India vs South Africa, 1st Test at Mohali

The first match of the four-Test match series between India and South Africa got underway at the PCA Stadium, Mohali on Thursday. Team India lost the Twenty20 and One-Day International (ODI) series and the Virat Kohli-led Test side will look forward to salvage some pride. It’s often that India get dominated on home soil.

The pitch of Mohali has been a dustbowl so far and winning a good toss, India decided to bat first and their innings lasted  just 201 runs. Dean Elgar with four wickets was the star for them. However, led by Ravichandran Ashwin’s fifer India managed a 17-run lead. Thanks to a 63 from AB de Villiers, South Africa got so close.

The match is nicely poised on Day Three with Indian spinners finding it hard against the South African spin bowlers. We present you with the best tweets from the Test.
