As many as 23 wickets tumbled on a crazy first day of the New Year’s Test match between India and South Africa at Cape Town. Dismantling the Proteas lineup in the first session of the series decider at Newlands, speedster Mohammed Siraj recorded his maiden six-wicket haul to spark a shocking batting collapse of the hosts in the 1st innings.

Siraj’s career-best figures of 6-15 paved the way for Rohit Sharma and Co. to skittle the hosts for 55 in their first essay at Cape Town. In Elgar’s farewell Test, India also suffered a spectacular collapse as South Africa bounced back after the tea break. Resuming on 153-4 after tea, Lungi Ngidi bowled a triple-wicket maiden to turn the tie on its head. Joining forces with speedster Ngidi, pace ace Kagiso Rabada bagged two wickets as India were bowled out for 153 in the space of 11 deliveries.

Ngidi and Rabada were earlier assisted by Nandre Burger, who picked three wickets before tea break to keep the Proteas in the hunt. Recovering from the great Indian collapse, Rohit and Co. restricted South Africa to 62-3 in 17 overs on Day 1 of the Cape Town decider. South Africa’s stand-in skipper, Elgar, became the second batter to get dismissed twice on the opening day of the Test match. Pacers Mukesh Kumar, Siraj, Prasidh Krishna and Bumrah shared ten wickets for India in South Africa’s 2nd innings.
