Cricket: Proteas dismissed for just 55 runs

# Cricket: The Proteas had the worst possible start to the second Test against India at Newlands in Cape Town. Stand-in captain Dean Elgar won the toss and elected to bat. The top four batters could not even get past scoring 5 runs each. Only Kyle Verreynne and David Bedingham could get to double figures. Mohammed Siraj was the main destroyer, claiming six wickets for just 15 runs. The Proteas were dismissed for 55 runs in the 24th over – not even batting till lunch on the first day of the Test.
