(Watch) Team India players bid a fitting farewell to Dean Elgar

Virat Kohli, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj congratulated Dean Elgar after his last innings in Test cricket. He will retire after the ongoing second Test between India and South Africa in Cape Town.

Elgar’s last two innings ended on Day 1, with Mohammed Siraj and Mukesh Kumar getting rid of him. He managed 4 and 12.

Indian cricketers came running towards him while he was heading back to the pavilion.

India suffered a spectacular collapse, losing six batters for no run as 23 wickets fell on a crazy opening day of the second cricket test against South Africa at Newlands on Wednesday.

Resuming on 153-4 after tea, the home team ran through the batting order to bowl India out for 153 in the space of 11 deliveries, with Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi and Nandre Burger snapping up three wickets apiece.

Earlier, South Africa was bowled out for just 55 in 23.2 overs, sliding to its lowest total since being readmitted to test cricket in 1991, after Mohammed Siraj claimed a test-best haul of 6-15.

South Africa then reached the close of play on 62-3 in its second innings, trailing by 36 runs overall, with Aiden Markram unbeaten on 36 and David Bedingham seven not out.
