India Levels Test Series with Seven-Wicket Victory Against South Africa

India secured a seven-wicket victory against South Africa in the second Test, leveling the two-match series.

The match concluded in just two days with challenging batting conditions. South Africa, starting their second innings at 62-3 with a 36-run deficit, displayed an improved performance, particularly with a remarkable hundred from opener Aiden Markram (106 runs). However, the Proteas couldn’t withstand the Indian pace attack, getting all out for 176.

Jasprit Bumrah’s exceptional bowling (6/61) limited India’s target to 79 runs in the fourth innings. Despite losing a few wickets, India successfully chased the target, with skipper Rohit Sharma (17 not out) and Shreyas Iyer (4 not out) securing the win.

The series is now leveled, as South Africa had won the first Test at Centurion.
