Team India put up a much improved show on the second day of the ongoing third Test at New Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg on Thursday (January 25). After being bowled out for 187 in the first innings on a green mamba, Virat Kohli and company up their game by many folds and restricted the Proteas to only 194.

Resuming their innings after being 6 for 1 at stumps on Day 1, South Africa didn’t had the best of start on the second day as they lost Dean Elgar when the score was just 16. Even though veteran Hashim Amla along with the nightwatchman Kagiso Rabada put on a 64-run stand for the third wicket, the hosts batsmen didn’t look comfortable against the fiery Indian pace attack. None of the Proteas batter except for Amla (61 off 121) crossed the mark of 50.

Jasprit Bumrah claimed his maiden five-wicket haul in Test cricket while Bhuvneshwar Kumar scalped three wickets. India finished the second day on 49-1, having secured the vital lead of 42 runs. It wouldn’t be unfair to say that the world No. 1 Test team perhaps had the best day at the office in their ongoing South Africa tour. No wonder, the Twitter world was buzzing with the praise of India’s stellar show.

Here’s how the Twitterverse reacted:
