Team India bounced back stronger in the second Test at Cape Town, completely tormenting South Africa as they bowled them out for just 55 runs—the lowest total for the host nation in Test cricket against India.
Mohammed Siraj, the Indian speedster, unleashed havoc with a spectacular six-wicket haul, leaving South Africa in disarray. He dismantled the top order, claiming the wickets of Aiden Markram, Dean Elgar, and Tony de Zorzi—all for single-digit scores.
Jasprit Bumrah, the seasoned Indian pacer, weaved his magic to dismiss South African debutant Tristan Stubbs for a mere three runs. Yet, Mohammed Siraj showed no mercy, returning to dismiss Kyle Verreynne, David Bedingham, and Marco Jansen.
In a relentless effort, Jasprit Bumrah picked up another wicket, taking his tally to two, while Mukesh Kumar efficiently mopped up the South African tail. The result: South Africa dismissed for only 55 runs, marking their lowest total in Test cricket since their readmission to Test cricket in 1991.
