In the Cape Town Test which is played between India and South Africa, the Indian team’s second entry was reduced to just 198 runs. Despite the century of wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant, the Indian team failed to cross the 200 mark. This is the first time in the history of Indian team cricket, when despite a player’s century in a Test match, the team’s total score couldn’t even reach 200.

1. The test match being played in Cape Town is number one on this issue. Team India scored only 198 runs despite Rishabh Pant’s 100-run innings. This is the lowest score of the Indian team despite a century.
2. In 1998-99, Mohammad Azharuddin went 103 innings unbeaten against New Zealand in Wellington, but Team India’s total score reached just 208 runs.
3. Even in 1992-93, despite a century against South Africa, the entire Indian team was able to score 215 runs. Kapil Dev scored 129 runs in the Port Elizabeth test match.
4. In the Edgbaston Test against England in 1996, the entire Indian team was sacked after scoring 219 runs. Sachin Tendulkar scored 122 runs in this match.

Another record has been made at the Cape Town Test. This is the record for all 20 wickets in both innings by a team in a single test that was caught. All 20 wickets of Team India were caught in the Cape Town Test. To date this has not happened in the history of cricket. Previously, in a Test 5 times, 19 wickets were caught in both innings by one team.
