New Delhi. The kind of havoc that Indian fast bowlers had shown in the ODI World Cup 2023. Such was the havoc that the South African batting order got laid like a pack of cards in front of the trio of Mohammed Siraj, Mukesh Kumar, and Bumrah on the Cape Town ground in the second Test match against South Africa. Of course, the Indian team may have lost the first test match in Africa but till now this tour has been good for the Indian team. In this match, Mia Magic worked in such a way that it created history. Mohammed Siraj dismissed 6 South African batsmen in a single session and the entire team collapsed for just 55 runs.
Batting collapsed like a sand castle in front of ‘Mia Magic’..
Let us tell you that in this match, Dean Elgar, who is captaining the African team, won the toss and decided to bat first. But his decision was not in favor of the team. From the very first spell, the Indian fast bowlers started giving blows one after the other and no batsman could survive. This is Africa’s lowest score so far in a Test against India. Full credit for this goes to fast bowler Mohammad Siraj. He took 6 wickets for 15 runs in 9 overs. Mohammed Siraj sent Aiden Markram, Dean Elgar, Tony De Jorji, David Bedingham, Kyle Vergne and Marco Janssen to the pavilion.

Africa’s lowest score in a test inning against India
South Africa will never forget this innings because before this the South African team had scored the smallest score against India in November 2015. During this match, the African team was all out after scoring just 79 runs in the test match in Nagpur. Indian spin bowler Ravichandran Ashwin had taken 5 wickets in the first innings and 7 wickets in the second innings in that match.
