Captain Graeme Smith and Neil McKenzie gave South Africa solid start in the opening test against India on Wednesday.

After they had won the toss and elected to bat Smith and McKenzie both struck fifties to 109 without loss.

The pair continued on from where they had an aggressive start which left the Indian bowlers dripping.McKenzie was 54 not out and Smith a further run behind on 53.

The 32-year-old McKenzie batted authoritatively and hit 11 fours before lunch.

Both teams want victory in the three-test series to get a chance to remove Australia from their number one test ranking.
