IND vs SA: Twitter Reacts As Jasprit Bumrah Picks Up A 5-Wicket Haul In Cape Town Test

On his return to the Newlands Stadium in Cape Town where he made his Test debut four years ago, Jasprit Bumrah ended up with a five-wicket haul as he helped India take a slender lead of 13 runs in the first innings.

After India was blown away for 223, the onus was once again on the Indian pacers to put them ahead. Bumrah started off the proceedings when he dismissed South African rock, Dean Elgar, on Day 1 itself.

He began brilliantly on Day 2 as he bowled Aiden Markram on the second ball of Day 2. Although the hosts managed to stitch crucial partnerships, it was always a matter of a wicket with the pitch behaving the way it is.

There is uneven bounce already with a few deliveries staying quite low. Nevertheless, Keegan Petersen scored a resolute 72 before Bumrah sent him back with a beautiful delivery.

As has been the case for a while, the tail began to wag against the Indian bowling which frustrated Virat Kohli and co. 31 runs were added for the last two wickets before Bumrah came back to clean up the final wicket of Lungi Ngidi to claim his 7th five-wicket haul in Tests.

South Africa crawled their way to 210, however, which ensured that India end up with just a 13-run lead. With the way the Indian batting has crumbled, the match is currently even and anything can happen with over three days of play left in the match.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to Jasprit Bumrah’s 5-wicket haul:
