Preview

As South Africa and India SA vs IND square off in the second Test match of India’s tour of South Africa in 2023–2024, brace yourself for an exciting battle at Newlands, Cape Town. South Africa is leading the series 1-0 thanks to a convincing victory in the first Test match by an innings and 32 runs. That gives them the upper hand.

When South Africa put India to bat in the first innings of their previous match, they were met with an early top-order collapse. That being said, KL Rahul’s tenacious performance, together with partnerships from Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer, saved the innings, which ended with 245 runs score. Kagiso Rabada and Nandre Burger of South Africa produced significant breakthroughs that kept the Indian batting lineup under pressure. South Africa boldly reacted, scoring an impressive 408 runs in response. With crucial assistance from Marco Jansen, Dean Elgar spearheaded the attack with a stunning knock, narrowly missing a double century by 15 runs. Threatening to take significant wickets for India were Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj.

India had to fight their way back from a massive 163-run deficit in the second innings. Shubman Gill and Virat Kohli’s partnership offered some solidity despite early dismissals, but the subsequent collapse was catastrophic for India. India was eventually bowled out for 131 runs after Kohli’s heroic half-century was insufficient to fend off South Africa’s relentless bowling attack. South Africa was able to secure crucial wickets because to the critical performances of Kagiso Rabada, Nandre Burger, and Marco Jansen. South Africa is leading the series, but India is determined to equalize the scores, which will make the second Test match at Newlands an exciting affair.
