The second test match at Newlands, Cape Town started with India hoping to level the series only for the second time in their history while touring South Africa. On the other hand, South Africa was hoping to bid a well-deserved farewell to their start test batsman and captain Dean Elgar. But nobody ever knew what was coming on Day 1.

South Africa was bundled out on 55 runs with Siraj picking up 6 wickets while Bumrah and Mukesh Kumar picked 2 each. India who started their innings on a positive note with some exquisite shots played particularly by Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill, and Virat Kohli collapsed eventually by losing 6 wickets on zero runs in the end and could manage to put only 153 runs on the board taking 98 runs lead. In their second innings too, South Africa lost 3 quick wickets including their captain Dean Elgar.
