As India play their first Test against South Africa, Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma was seen cheering her husband Virat Kohli and team India from the Newlands stands in Cape Town. Anushka is seen sitting with the rest of the Indian cricket team’s strong support system – the wives.

Sitting next to Anushka are Shikhar Dhawan’s wife Aesha, Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s wife Nupur Nagar and Rohit Sharma’s better half Ritika Sajdeh. Bhuvneshwar gave the visitors a good start to the overseas series in South Africa, rattling the Proteas with his four wickets on Day 1 of the opening Test on Friday after South Africa won the toss and chose to bat.

South Africa battled to 286 all out on the first day as Kumar, who took 4/68, toppled the top order (Dean Elgar (0), Aiden Markram (5) and Hashim Amla (3)) in his first three overs. South Africa needed half-centuries by AB de Villiers (65) and Du Plessis (62) to get close to 300. Fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah bowled de Villiers for his first Test wicket and spinner Ravichandran Ashwin too chipped in with 2/21. India are No. 1 in the world in Test after nine consecutive series wins, but have only played once outside Asia in that run of success.

    immature Kohli will pay price for keeping Rahane out of the team. Humiliating defeat is awaiting for him as wedding gift and result of his foolish/nepotic captaincy

      stop this idiocracy. Start writing about Kohli's arrogancy and stupidity now.He is at his peak of his arrogancy which started Quietly by sidelining Rahane (This started After Rahane fared better than Mr Arrogant aka Kohli in batting challenge conducted by Kumble- ( s: mykhel /cricket/virat-kohli-team-india-coach-anil-kumble-one-hour-test-006671 ),which hurt Kohli's ego and made him to feel threatened about his legacy). He started to sideline him by pushing him down the order, denying him opportunities and now keeping him out of the team for the tour where he had prolific record than anyone else in the team. Mr Gabbar was out of form for 2 years before his come back in Champions trophy. No one spoke on that. Just one bad series,Rahane is out !!! Test Specialist K L Rahul- not sure how Gabbar can be considered better batsman in test than KL.Kohli is at peak of his arrogancy, which will definitely drag him to the core of earth if not corrected at the right time.
