India struggled to 55-3 at tea Thursday on a difficult batting pitch on a rain-shortened first day of the opening test against South Africa at Centurion.
India lost opener Virender Sehwag for a duck and then Gautam Gambhir and Rahul Dravid in quick succession to slip to 27-3, with fast bowlers Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel making use of the pace-friendly conditions at SuperSport Park.
Sachin Tendulkar was 22 not out and VVS Laxman 6 not out as India battled through 20 tricky overs.
Sehwag fell in the third over when he attempted a flowing back-foot drive off Steyn and sent a catch to Hashim Amla at third man.
Morkel struck twice in two overs, Gambhir edging to Paul Harris at first slip for 5 and Dravid out lbw for 14.
