South Africa has won the three-match Test series against team India 2-1. And it was a great series for them. South Africa chased down a total of 212 runs in the fourth innings of the match, which was not easy.
But they did it comprehensively. Keegan Petersen’ brilliant 82 followed by Dussen’ 41 and Bavuma’s 32 put Proteas on the winning side.
It is a remarkable Test series victory for South Africa, 0-1 down, lost all tosses, chased down totals twice in the series and won the series 2-1 against India. Dean Elgar led the team well, bowlers stepped up and new stars arrived in the batting unit.
Coming to India, the bowling department is brilliant. Team India loses the series due to the poor middle-order batting, whom the BCCI and team give consistently opportunities for more than a year in the name of past performances.
If the BCCI won’t rest these middle-order batsmen, it will become routine to stay on the losing side.
