Netizens are applauding Ravi Shastri’s commentary during the India-South Africa match in the second Test match. See post – Magazine Creations

Day two of India’s match against South Africa remained just as entertaining as day one with the trend of wicket losses continuing. After 23 wickets fell on the first day of the Test match, on Thursday (day 2), India’s six spinners got out and registered ducks. However, Shastri’s comment on the Indian cricket team’s debacle has created a storm on the internet.

What happened?

In the history of cricket, India became the first team to lose six wickets without scoring a run.

On Thursday, during the second Test between India and South Africa, the Indian team lost six wickets at 153.

India’s collapse began when Lungi Ngidi took three wickets and turned the tables on the visitors in the 34th over. South Africa’s Kagiso Rabada then dismissed Virat Kohli, who was three runs short of his half-century, Mohammed Siraj was run out and Prasidh Krishna edged one . India thus lost six wickets for no runs in 11 balls.

What did Ravi Shastri say?

Former India coach Ravi Shastri, who was in the commentary box, summed up the situation in a funny way. Shastri said: “Yes 153/4, 153 all out. If someone goes around the corner for a dump and comes back, India would have been bowled out for 153!”

How did netizens react?

While netizens criticized Team India striker and captain Rohit Sharma, they praised Sheshtri for describing the situation aptly.

“Ravi Shastri cements his commentary legacy once again,” one user wrote on X platform.

Another user wrote: “Am I the only one who had to confirm what Ravi Shastri said here? I couldn’t help but burst out laughing.”

One user wrote: “Only Ravi Shastri can give great feedback like this!”

South Africa chose to bat first and were bowled out for just 55 in 23.2 overs, with Kyle Vereen (15) and David Bedingham (12) the only players to touch double figures.

Mohammed Siraj’s fiery spell of 15/6 demolished the top and middle order for the Proteas, while Jasprit Bumrah (2/25) and Mukesh Kumar (0/2) also took wickets.

In the first innings, India were 153/4 at one point, with strong scores coming from Virat Kohli (46 in 59 balls, with six fours and a six), Rohit Sharma (39 in 50 balls, with seven fours) and Shubman Gill (36 in 55 ball, with five fours), but Lungi Ngidi with three wickets sank India to 153 in 34.5 overs.

Ngidi (3/30), Kagiso Rabada (3/38) and Nandre Burger (3/42) took three wickets each for SA. Later in the second round, SA finished the day at 62/3, with Aiden Markram (36*) doing the bulk of the scoring. Skipper Dean Elgar managed 12 runs in his final Test outings. Mukesh got two while Bumrah got one wicket.
