A total of 23 wickets fell on the first day of the second Test match of the series between India and South Africa, which started on January 3. The host African team decided to bat first after winning the toss, but their first innings ended with just 55 runs. After this, the Indian team’s first innings was limited to 153 runs, while before the end of the day, South Africa also lost 3 wickets after scoring 62 runs in its second innings. For the Indian team, the hero of the game on the first day was fast bowler Mohammad Siraj, who took 6 wickets while conceding 15 runs in 9 overs of bowling. After this brilliant performance, Siraj, while talking to bowling coach Paras Mhambrey after the end of the day’s play, said that in the Centurion Test, he had realized where he made the mistake while bowling.

I haven’t watched my bowling videos

After the end of the first day of Cape Town Test, BCCI posted a video of the conversation between bowling coach Paras Mhambrey and Mohammed Siraj. In this, bowling coach Mhambrey asked him, with what mindset were you bowling in the last match and what did you do differently in this Test so that you were able to bowl well in this match? In response to this, Siraj said that I was trying too much in the last match. This happened for the first time in my Test career that I bowled a maiden in the 24th over. At that very moment I came to know where I was making a mistake, I did not even watch my bowling video after the match. At that very moment I had decided what mistake I should not make in the next match.

Siraj further said in his reply that I had entered the field in this test with the same thinking and because of that I could get this result. On the other hand, when asked about the pitch of Cape Town Test, Siraj said that I did not know that this would happen. Honestly speaking, bowling partnerships are very important in Tests. The partnership between me and Bumrah bhai was good, in which he was maintaining constant pressure from one end and I got wickets from the other end.

India still has a lead of 36 runs

When the play on the first day of the second Test match ended, the Indian team still had a lead of 36 runs on the basis of first innings. South Africa had scored 62 runs at the loss of 3 wickets in its second innings, in which Aiden Markram was playing on 36 runs and David Bedingham was playing on 7 runs. Whereas Dean Elgar, who was playing the last match of his Test career, managed to score only 4 runs in the first innings of this match and only 12 runs in the second innings.
