Cape Town - South Africa’s first innings total of 79 against India in Nagpur is their lowest ever total in Test cricket since readmission.
Indian spinners, Ravichandran Ashwin (5/32) and Ravindra Jadeja (4/33), ripped through the South African batting line-up to leave them trailing by 136 runs on the first innings of the third Test in Nagpur.
It is South Africa's lowest Test total since their re-admission to international cricket in 1991/92 following the abolishment of apartheid.
It’s also South Africa’s lowest ever total in Tests against India, 'beating' the 84 Graeme Smith’s charges made in Johannesburg in 2006.
India’s lowest total against South Africa is 66 - achieved at Kingsmead in Durban in 1996.
The total of 79 is not the lowest in South Africa’s Test history though, in fact, it only ranks as their 12th worst overall.
South Africa’s lowest ever total in Test cricket is 30, achieved on two occasions against England, albeit way back in 1896 and 1924.
