Team India got off to a good start on the second day of the third and final Test against South Africa in Cape Town and Jasprit Bumrah clean bowled batsman Aiden Markram overnight on the second ball of the morning. Batting on 8, Markram decided to release a ball that was thrown around the off-stump. The Protea batsman had no idea that the ball would come in so much after pitching.

Markram did not cover his off-stump and his decision to release the ball as soon as Bumrah hit the stumps proved disastrous.

The Indian pacer had a smile on his face after taking the wicket, which was his second innings and helped South Africa to 17/2/

Bumrah gave the tourists a strong start on the very first day by dismissing South African captain Dean Elgar.


Earlier, India were bowled out for 223, with Kagiso Rabada taking 4 wickets while Marco Jensen took 3 wickets.

Indian captain Virat Kohli added 79 and Cheteshwar Pujara added 43 runs.
