The scoreboard at the end of India’s innings.
CAPE TOWN. – Cricket has had its share of crazy days, but none, especially in the last century, can match the absolute madness that transpired on the first day of the second Test between South Africa and India at Newlands.
A record 23 wickets fell in all as South Africa, who were rolled for 55 in the first session, roared back into the game to bowl India for 153 just after tea before finishing on 62/3.
Aiden Markram (36*) stands as South Africa’s hope of being able to take the deep into day two as Dean Elgar had the misfortune of batting twice on what became his last day of being a Test batter, with the same fate befalling Tony de Zorzi (2 and 1) and Tristan Stubbs, who both fell in the morning and evening sessions.
