Siraj in second test

In the second test, Indian bowling completely smashed the South African batting lineup. Pacer Md. Siraj has helped India cruelly destroy the mighty South African team. Check the second test’s first-day highlights. 

Indian cricket fans were not so happy with the Indian team’s overall performance. Rohit Sharma’s team was completely disappointing in the first match, resulting in an inning loss. However, in the second test against South Africa, bowlers smashed the entire batting lineup of the hosts. 

Siraj on fire

In the second test match, Md. Siraj looked on fire and took six crucial wickets for South Africa. Till the lunch break, Indian bowlers, including Siraj, booked the whole South African team on a total score of 55 runs in 23.2 overs. 

Siraj gave the initial breakthrough to his team by taking the wicket of Aiden Markram with a total score of 5 runs. South Africa had added only three runs to the table when Siraj gave the second blow. This time, he bowled the dangerous Dean Elgar. Also, Zorzi could not escape the wrath of Siraj and returned to the pavilion after getting out cheaply.

Apart from this, Siraj broke the back of the African team by taking another three wickets. Bumrah also took two crucial wickets for his team and complemented Siraj. 

Mukesh got two? 

After Jassi and Siraj gave the initial blows to the South African batting, Mukesh took charge. Mukesh took the wickets of Keshav Maharaj and Kagiso Rabada and ended the South African batting. South Africa lost all its wickets with a total score of 55 runs. 

Kyle Verreynne and David Bedingham were the only batters getting two-digit scores. The rest of the South African batsmen don’t even get the second digit. At the same time, Marco Jansen and Lungi Ngidi lost their wickets on a personal score of 0 runs. 

Target for India

Since South Africa has one inning to play, India has no exact target. However, since South Africa has scored only 55 runs in their first innings, India requires only 55 runs to win the first innings game. 

Rohit Sharma’s team will now look to score at least 350 runs to win the match by innings and compensate for the shameful defeat of the last match.
