In what was an unprecedented batting collapse, Rohit Sharma-led India lost their last six wickets in 11 delveries without scoring a run during their opening day of the second Test match against South Africa at Newlands in Cape Town on Wednesday. (RSA Vs IND Scorecard | Match Blog)

Lungi Ngidi started the collapse in the 34th over of India's first innings when he scalped three wickets in an over that included KL Rahul, Ravindra Jadeja and Jasprit Bumrah.

Once Kagiso Rabada came into the attack, he snapped the wicket of the in-form Virat Kohli and then a comical run-out of Mohammed Siraj brought India nine down as Mukesh Kumar was the final wicket to fall for India's innings to falter at 153.
