India Beats South Africa in Cape Town

In the 2nd test of the India vs South Africa series, Jasprit Bumrah gathered a six-
wicket haul ensuring India’s victory over hosts South Africa by 7 wickets.

Jasprit Bumrah’s Rich Haul Of Wickets

Premier pacer Bumrah bagged six wickets in the first session while South Africa’s
Aiden Markram slammed a fighting century for the hosts on Day 2 of the series

decider at Newlands in South Africa. Bumrah’s performance ensured a match-changer
for India.
With the Proteas all out for 176, Rohit Sharma and company thrashed the South
African side by 7 wickets to the victory of 2nd Test match for India.

India’s first-ever win at Cape Town has arrived in Dean Elgar’s farewell Test. With the
win, Rohit and his team have also levelled the Test series 1-1.

As many as 23 wickets tumbled on a crazy first day of the New Year’s Test match
between India and South Africa at Cape Town. Dismantling the Proteas lineup in the
the first session of the series decider at Newlands, speed bowler Mohammed Siraj
recorded his maiden six-wicket haul to initiate a batting collapse of the hosts in the
1st innings.

Siraj’s career-best figures of 6-15 paved the way for Rohit Sharma and the Indian
team to limit the hosts to 55 in their first essay at Cape Town.

In Elgar’s farewell Test, India also suffered a shocking collapse as South Africa
bounced back after the tea break. Resuming on 153-4 after tea, Lungi Ngidi bowled a
triple-wicket maiden to turn the tie on its head. Joining forces with speedster Ngidi,
pacer Kagiso Rabada bagged two wickets and India was bowled out for 153 in the
space of 11 deliveries.

Ngidi and Rabada were earlier assisted by Nandre Burger, who picked three wickets
before tea break to keep the South Africans in the hunt. Recovering from the great
Indian collapse, the Indian side restricted South Africa to 62-3 in 17 overs on Day 1
of the Cape Town match. South Africa’s stand-in skipper, Elgar, became the second
batter to get dismissed twice on the opening day of the Test match. Pacers Mukesh
Kumar, Siraj, Prasidh Krishna and Bumrah shared ten wickets for India in South
Africa’s 2nd innings.
