The ongoing India-South Africa Test series witnessed an action-packed second match at the Newlands Stadium in Cape Town, marked by dramatic wickets and a touching moment of sportsmanship led by former Indian captain Virat Kohli.

The match had its emotional highlights as South African stand-in skipper Dean Elgar, in his final Test appearance, fell victim to Indian pacer Mukesh Kumar. Kohli’s instant response following his dismissal, on the other hand, stole the show. He signalled the crowd not to celebrate, demonstrating respect and empathy for Elgar’s farewell.

Amidst these heartfelt moments, the cricketing action was equally intense. The first day saw an incredible 23 wickets fall, showing the intense battle between bat and ball. India showed their strengths by bowling South Africa all out for 55 runs in their first innings.

However, the match took a sudden turn as India batted in reply and was eventually bowled out for 153 runs. A tenacious South African performance reduced India’s commanding lead in the second innings. South Africa finished the second day with 62 runs for the loss of three wickets, behind by 36 runs with seven wickets in hand.
