Watch: Jasprit Bumrah smashes South Africa with sensational delivery

Rain was looming on the final day of the first Test at Centurion, but India quickly defeated the remaining six South African batsmen to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.

On Day 4, the Proteas suffered another top-order collapse as Mohammed Shami dismissed Aiden Markram, while Mohammed Siraj removed Keegan Pietersen. Meanwhile, a 40-run partnership between South Africa captain Dean Elgar and Rassie van der Dussen looked to snatch the game but Jasprit Bumrah had other plans. The Indian bowling leader dismissed van der Dussen and Keshav Maharaj late in the night.

The 28-year-old bowled a dangerous in-swinger to first dismiss van der Dussen. In the 37th over of the match, van der Dussen thought there was a good length delivery which he tried to release but it went too fast and hit the stumps. Van der Dussen returned after scoring 11 runs in 65 balls.

If that in-dipper was exciting, Bumrah followed him to crush the toe to defeat Maharaj. His second out was out on the last ball of the fourth day, the ball was in the leg from outside. Maharaj, who was sent off as a nightwatchman by the home team, was completely shocked by the dismissal. He could only score eight runs in 19 balls.

Notably, the twin dismissals of van der Dussen and Maharaj were Bumrah’s 17th and 18th in the Rainbow Nation and his 100th and 101st away from home.

The right-arm pacer also set a record in Test cricket after bagging those two wickets in the second innings. He became the shortest wicket-taker on reaching the milestone of 100 wickets away from home in the longest format. Bumrah is the sixth Indian fast bowler to achieve this feat, whose names include Kapil Dev, Zaheer Khan, Ishant Sharma, Shami and Javagal Srinath in the list.
