The second match between India and South Africa has started in Cape Town from today. Meanwhile, when the South African team came out to bat, Mohammed Siraj did wonders. As soon as the innings started, Mohammad Siraj showed his same form for which he is known and recognized. Not a single South African batsman could stand against Siraj. Rohit Sharma also made Siraj bowl continuously and he also kept taking wickets continuously. When South Africa had lost 8 wickets, Siraj had only six wickets to his name.

South African captain Dean Elgar won the toss and chose to bat first.

South African captain Dean Elgar, playing his last Test match, won the toss and decided to bat first. His decision proved wrong when both the opening batsmen of the team soon returned to the pavilion. When the team’s score was only 5 runs, Adam Markram was out after scoring two runs. Captain Dean Elgar also returned to the pavilion after scoring four runs. At that time the team’s score was only eight runs. Mohammad Siraj made both these openers his victims. After this, Jasprit Bumrah shocked South Africa by dismissing Tristan Stubbs for three runs for the third wicket.

Mohammad Siraj bowled 9 consecutive overs

Captain Rohit Sharma then removed Jasprit Bumrah from one end and appointed Prasidh for bowling. But Mohammed Shami kept bowling continuously from the other end. After taking three wickets, he took three more wickets in his name. Mohammad Siraj bowled nine consecutive overs from one end and took six wickets. During this period he gave only 15 runs.

Siraj’s third 5 wicket haul in test

This is the third time that Mohammad Siraj has taken 5 wickets in a Test innings. Earlier he had taken only five wickets, this time this figure has directly reached six. This is Siraj’s best performance in his short Test career. Earlier, Siraj had taken five wickets for 73 runs against Australia in Brisbane in the year 2021. In the same year i.e. 2023, he took 5 wickets for 60 runs against West Indies.
