This Is What Happens When Virat Kohli Plays the “Bail-Swap” Mindgame Again

<p>At the second Test match between South Africa and India at Newlands in Cape Town, Virat Kohli was once again seen using his “bail-swap” maneuver. Aiden Markram seemed to try wasting some time before Stumps on Day 1 in order to avoid another over.</p>

<p>At this point, Kohli moved close to the stumps and switched the bails. It’s not unusual for Kohli to jokingly change the bails while fielding. This was also what the player had done in Centurion during the first Test matchup with South Africa. But unlike the last occasion, when India claimed a wicket in the same over thanks to Kohli’s move, Markram easily defended the final ball, preventing the visitors from making a breakthrough.</p>
<p>As Markram was squandering time, Kohli reappeared with a slogan.</p>

<p>— @shivangian10 January 3, 2024 After losing 23 wickets on the first day of the second and final Test at Newlands on Wednesday, India has a solid opportunity of drawing even with South Africa in the series.</p>
<p>South Africa ended the second innings with 62 for three, remaining 36 runs shy of India’s first innings total of 153, having been bowled out for 55 in the first.</p>
<p>On a wicket that provided significant assistance to the fast bowlers throughout the day, South Africa was bowled out before noon thanks to a spectacular career-best effort of six for 15 from Mohammed Siraj.</p>
<p>The score was the lowest for South Africa in over ninety-two years, when they were bowled out for thirty-six and forty-five by Australia in February 1932 at Melbourne on a ground impacted by rain.</p>
<p>In a Test match against India, it was the lowest total ever by any side, defeating New Zealand’s 62 in Mumbai in December 2021.</p>
<p>Siraj bowled a flawless nine overs in the same fashion.</p>
<p>In 9.4 overs, India easily took the lead before the afternoon beverage break.</p>
<p>With the seasoned Virat Kohli and KL Rahul at the bat, the visitors seemed to be in a strong position as they reached 153 for 4.</p>
<p>However, the last six wickets were taken for only 11 balls and no runs.</p>
<p>With two wickets taken by Mukesh Kumar and one by Jasprit Bumrah, South Africa finished Day 1 at 62 for 3, 36 runs behind India.</p>
