On Thursday, January 4, 2024, at the Newlands Cricket Ground in Cape Town, on the second day of the second Test match between South Africa and India, Rohit Sharma plays a shot. In less than two days, India defeated South Africa by 7 wickets to win the second cricket Test in Cape Town, leveling the two-match series at one. This came from an entertaining start on Day 2 at Newlands stadium. In the First Innings, seven players lose their wickets without scoring. During the second innings, South Africa only scored 176 points before they ran out of chances at bat.
Shreyas Iyer ended it well, hitting Marco Jansen’s good length ball high towards long on for a boundary. He got in line before doing so. Rohit Sharma, on a pitch that made things hard for the hosts, quickly scored 39 runs in only 50 balls. This helped India get ahead early. Virat Kohli, however, scored 46 runs before being hit by Kagiso Rabada.
India’s Jasprit Bumrah took the ninth five-wicket haul in Test cricket and finished with six for 61. This record is a big achievement by him. Mohammed Siraj and expensive Prasidh Krishna got a single wicket in the second innings. While Mukesh Kumar (2/56) took two wickets overall.
Many players lost their wickets very fast, but Aiden Markram hit an amazing 103. Except for Markram, no other Proteas player hit more than 20 runs. Only Dean Elgar (12), David Bedingham (11) and Marco Jansen (1).But none of the others got near double figures except for one exception in a team called marker where no batter reached this score.
