Bumrah deserved all praises as he grabbed his maiden fifer in the Test cricket on day two. He started with the wicket of Faf du Plessis and went to take another four wickets in the process. Hashim Amla’s dismissal proved to be the most vital one as India denied hosts from a big deficit.

India scored 187 in their first essay, but they will be keen to hang a big score to give a mammoth target to their rivals. This Test match is set up nicely and we may see a nail-biting encounter at the end of this game in Johannesburg.
