The premier Indian fast bowler, Jasprit Bumrah continued his rhythm from the opening day of the ongoing Test against South Africa in Cape Town on Day 2 as well. He managed to get the wicket of the Proteas opener, Aiden Markram on the second ball itself. Bumrah had earlier got the wicket of Dean Elgar in the dying moments of the first day with an absolute peach.

Jasprit Bumrah has been bowling a brilliant spell in Cape Town

Jasprit Bumrah was looking like the most dangerous bowler and he began Day 2 on a similar note. After inducing an edge off the first ball, Bumrah got one to tailback in. Markram was unsure if the ball would come in and hence his misjudged the ball and decided to shoulder his arms. The new ball did more than enough to come back in and hit the top of the off stumps to signal the perfect start of the day for the visitors.
