South Africa vs. India, Second Test – “Miyan Magic”: Twitter erupts as Mohammed Siraj gives South Africa pause in the Cape Town Test

<p>On the opening day of the current second Test in Cape Town, India struck four times in the first ten overs, leaving South Africa reeling. Mohammed Siraj made early inroads. Siraj proved to be India’s main wrecker when the Proteas won the toss and chose to bat; the Indians had lost the first Test in Centurion last week by an innings and 32 runs.

<p>— @RajuRo_45 (Raju_45(Hitman)) On January 3, 2024, Siraj completed his third five-for in Test cricket by dismissing Kyle Verrynne and Marco Jansen.</p>
<p>Three changes were made by South Africa, including the addition of new cap Tristan Stubbs, who was supposed to bat at number four instead of Keegan Petersen according to the squad sheet.</p>
<p>Gerald Coetzee and Temba Bavuma, who were both injured, were replaced by left-arm spinner Keshav Maharaj and fast bowler Lungi Ngidi.</p>
<p>India chose to replace fellow spin bowler Ravichandran Ashwin with the fit-again Ravindra Jadeja, and Shardul Thakur with seam bowler Mukesh Kumar.</p>
<p>“We’re in a great position after winning the first Test, but we’re very mindful of starting well,” said South Africa’s captain Dean Elgar, who is participating in his last Test.</p>
<p>According to Indian skipper Rohit Sharma, he too would have opened the batting.</p>
<p>“We are quite upbeat about what we can achieve here,” he said.</p>
