Siraj, Bumrah bowl India to victory in record time

India 153 (Kohli 46, Rohit 39, Ngidi 3-30, Rabada 3-38, Burger 3-42) and 80 for 3 (Jaiswal 28, Jansen 1-15) beat South Africa 55 (Verreynne 15, Siraj 6-15) and 176 (Markram 106, Bumrah 6-61) by seven wickets


Jasprit Bumrah’s 6 for 61 paved the way for India’s seven-wicket win on the second day of the second Test in Cape Town, helping them level the two-match series 1-1.

After South Africa were bowled out for 176 in their second innings, India chased down the required 79 runs an hour before tea. Lasting just 107 overs, this was the shortest Test ever to produce a result.

It was also India’s first Test win at Newlands in seven attempts.

But before all that, Aiden Markram scored a stunning hundred – 106 off 103 balls.

It was the first time in Test history that a batter scored a hundred where none of his team-mates reached 20 in either innings; Kyle Verreynne’s 15 in the first innings was the next best for South Africa. (ESPNcricinfo)
