Internet Desk: Indian cricket team’s poor show in South Africa continues as the visitors lost two back to back wickets at the Wanderers. After the two quick wickets the Proteas quicks were in total control against India’s number  3 batsman Cheteshwar Pujara. They kept bowling him just outside the off-stump. At one stage everyone had started thinking that when would Pujara score his first run and finally he managed to take his first run on the 54 th minute of his innings.

By doing this he somehow saved himself from doing an unwanted record which is taking the most deliveries to score the first run by an Indian. The record is under former India spinner Rajesh Chauhan, who socred his first run after playing 57 deliveries to open his score against the neighbors Sri Lanka back in 1994.

Earlier, in the second Test at Centurion, Pujara created an unwanted record as he became the very first Indian batsman to get run-out twice in a Test match. He became the 25th cricketer in the world who achieved this feat.
