South African bowlers created a new history of Test cricket against India

South African bowlers created a new history of Test cricket against India. In the ongoing second cricket test in Cape Town, South African bowlers created a new history of test cricket by blowing 6 wickets of India without giving any runs. This is the first time that a team has lost 6 wickets without adding any runs.

In the Cape Town Test, the South African team was bowled out for 55 runs in the first innings, after which India scored 153 runs for four wickets at one point, but then the South African bowlers turned the dice.

First, Lungi Ngadi dismissed KL Rahul, Rondra Jadeja, and Jasprit Bumrah in one over. In the next over, Rabada walked Virat Kohli, then Siraj was run out and after that, Prasidh Krishna also fell prey to Rabada.

Thus, the Indian team was all out for 153 after losing 6 players without adding any runs.

Earlier, there were 4 times in Test cricket when a team lost 5 players after adding no runs. Three times out of these four, the batting side was New Zealand’s.

In 1946 against Australia, in 1965 against Pakistan, and 2012 against South Africa, the New Zealand team lost 5 players without adding any runs.

In the 1965 match against Pakistan, the New Zealand team lost by 5 wickets without adding any runs. In the same innings, the Kiwis lost 6 wickets with the addition of one run, and this is the lowest loss of 6 wickets before today. It was a low score.

But now the stain of the most undesirable record has fallen on the Indian team, which has lost 6 wickets without adding any runs.

In this match, for the first time in the history of the Test, 0 was recorded in front of 7 players in the innings, 6 Indian players of South Africa were dismissed for zero, and one was not out for 0 without scoring a run.
