South Africa vs India 2nd Test Live Updates

Cape Town was witness to a wild first day of Test cricket, with 23 wickets crashing down like dominoes! It was a rollercoaster ride of collapses, record-breaking moments, and sheer batting mayhem.

South Africa crumbled first, skittle out for a measly 55 thanks to Mohammed Siraj’s fiery bowling (6 wickets!). But in a shocking twist, India, who needed just 10 overs to take the lead, imploded themselves! 6 wickets in 11 balls! A never-before-seen collapse had them staring at defeat.

Lungi Ngidi’s triple strike sparked the Indian meltdown, putting South Africa back in the game. Aiden Markram held firm (51 balls!), but India still holds a crucial 36-run lead on this unpredictable pitch.

Both teams had major slip-ups. South Africa, out for 55, made blunders on 1 in 5 shots! India weren’t much better, struggling with every 5th delivery. Only 7 players crossed double digits across all three innings!

Siraj was the star of the show, tormenting South Africa with his accurate bowling. He trapped Elgar twice, even in his last Test! Mukesh Kumar, replacing Shardul Thakur, cleaned up the tail.

India started aggressively, with Rohit Sharma taking on Ngidi and Burger. But Ngidi found his rhythm, bowling Rahul, Jadeja, and Bumrah with vicious bouncers. Even Kohli fell victim to this unpredictable pitch, part of the 6-wicket carnage.

In the end, despite their late stumble, India clung to the lead after a day of pure cricketing madness. Will they hold on, or will South Africa find a way back? Buckle up, folks, this Test is far from over! Read this Using AI Scientist Discovered New Antibiotics in over 16 years
