Commentary Gold from Ex-Head Coach of India Ravi Shastri After India's Historic Batting Collapse

The Newlands pitch wasn’t the only headline maker during the first day of the second Test between India and South Africa that got underway on Wednesday.

Ravi Shastri provided a memorable moment from the commentary box by summing up India’s stunning batting collapse that saw them lose six wickets without the addition of a single run in response to South Africa’s 55-all-out.

Shastri said on-air as the players were leaving the field following the end of India’s first innings in Cape Town that, "Yes, 153/4, 153 all out. If someone went around the corner for a dump and has come back, India has been bowled out for 153.”

South Africa captain Dean Elgar won the toss and chose to bat first, with the hosts eyeing a 2-0 series sweep after beating India by an innings and 32 runs in the first Test last week.

However, Mohammed Siraj delivered a spell from hell to finish with stunning figures of 6/15 from nine overs as South Africa were bundled out for 55 in their first innings.
