After facing a massive defeat in the first Test match against South Africa, they are playing the second Test match of the series. On January 3, India and South Africa are locking horns at Cape Town in the second Test match. In that match, India is in exceptional form. Mohammad Siraj is unstoppable in that match. But Virat’s gesture to Siraj before picking up Marco Jansen’s wicket is breaking the internet.
Virat’s Indication and Siraj’s Magic:
After getting defeated by a huge margin, Team India make an exceptional comeback. Since the start of the second Test match, India has been dominating the opponent. South Africa kept losing wickets quickly. In the 16th over, Marco Jansen Came to bat. Then Kohli was standing in the slip. He indicated Siraj to target Jansen’s outside edge. Also told KL Rahul or any fielders from the slip will catch the ball. That moment caught the spotlight.
After Virat’s master plan, Siraj got the success for the team. In the fifth delivery of the 16th over, Siraj bowled good length delivery. That delivery caught the outside edge of Marco Jansen when he was trying to block it from the crease. KL Rahul caught that behind the stump. With that wicket, Siraj got a five-wicket haul.
Siraj’s Excellence and India’s Dominance:
After a long, India came back in the longest format of cricket with the first Test match against South Africa at Centurion. In that Test, India faced a defeat against the opponent of an innings and 32 runs. In the second match, Team India made a remarkable comeback. Since the beginning of the second Test match, Mohammed Siraj was on fire. He registers his maiden six-wicket haul against South in the Test match. On the first day of the Test match, he bowled his best bowling figure. Siraj took 6 wickets in 15 runs. That was a clinical performance.
On the first day of the second Test match against South Africa, India’s pace attack was on point. Jasprit Bumrah took 2 wickets in 25 runs and Mukesh Kumar took 2 wickets without conceding any runs. South Africa got all out on 55 runs. While batting in the first innings, Team India is 58/1 in the 11th over.
