It was a matter of time that India shattered in the second test after losing 3 top order batsmen on day 4. The day started with India in deep problems at 35-3. Pujara and Parthiv Patel looked to steady the ship by stringing in a partnership but both threw away their wickets in quick succession.

Rohit and Shami fought back to an extent by adding 50 runs to the scorecard but Lungi Ngidi did the trick and haunted the tail-enders, he achieved maiden 6 wicket haul which came after his commendable efforts in the second innings.
