Cape Town: South Africa won the three-match Test series 1-2 against India, retaining history.
South Africa beat India by 7 wickets in the last and 3rd Tests in Cape Town.
South African fast bowlers Rabada, Ingiti, Jason and Oliver played a major role in the victory. On the other hand, Keegan Peterson, Dussen, Bumma and Elgar snatched the victory from the Indian team. Keegan Peterson was named Man of the Match and Man of the Series.
With this victory, the South African team advanced to the 4th place in the Test Championship list with 24 points, 66.66 percent. The Indian team, despite taking 53 points, remained in 5th place with 49 per cent.
It has been a rare occurrence for an Indian team to lose a series after winning the first Test. This was the last time the Indian team lost the first Test and never lost a Test series. Almost 10 years later it has now lost the Test series to South Africa.
For the last few years, there have been incidents where the batsmen carry only the victories for the Indian team and all the defeats are borne by the bowlers. Such success has been achieved only by the bowlers.
The bowlers did their best in the first innings of this match as well. However, in the 2nd innings, 8 of the Indian batsmen were bowled out for a single, the culmination of irresponsibility. Under Dravid’s training, which can be said to be the wall in so many Test matches, the batsmen’s sodomy is worth exploring.
There is no doubt that the batsmen were the main reason for the defeat in the 3rd Test and the 2nd Test. The bowlers would have turned the match around for India if they had scored an extra 100 runs in the 2nd innings. Taking the lead at the start of the series and then fortifying the series is the culmination of irresponsible batting.
Pujara, Rahane, Captain Kohli and Agarwal, who came back claiming to be senior players, are not sober. Rishabh bowled a fantastic, flawless innings in the last Test despite playing roughly in two matches. Otherwise nothing big can be expected from the Indian team in this series.
Rahane, Pujara, Agarwal in next Test series Virat Kohli If the Indian team is a non-existent team, it will definitely win. All these burdens are forced on the bowlers.
De Gock hastily retired from Test cricket after losing the first Test against South Africa. However, South Africa have proven that they can win the series without Decock.
The main reason for this is the 4 fast bowlers Rocket Rabada, Jason, Oliver and Ingiti. In addition, Rocket Rabada disrupted the batting of the Indian team in the 2nd Test. India were bowled out for 4 in the 3rd Test.
The South African team has identified two players in the series. First Keegan Peterson It gave him the opportunity to play better in domestic competitions, and Peterson made good use of it and took a consistent place. 2nd, bowling all-rounder, left-arm fast bowler Marco Jason. Both are pearls for the South African team.
The good times of the Indian team in this, Anrich Norcia Test, ODI series is not. The match would have been over in 3 days if he had been there.
Earlier in the first innings, India were bowled out for 223 and South Africa for 210. India were bowled out for 198 in the second innings and set a target of 212 for South Africa.
South Africa, who set a target of 212 for victory, lost 2 wickets at the end of the innings and added 101 runs. Keegan Peterson He was on the field with 48 runs. With Peterson this morning, Dozen banged. In action, Peterson hit a fifty off 65 balls.
Bumra, Shami and Thakur could not separate the bowlers as the trio were in crisis as the Indian team’s chances of victory would return if they took 3 wickets in a row. Advancing towards the century, Peterson bowled Thakur for 82.
Puma, who came next, joined Dozen to lead the team to victory. Dussen was unbeaten on 41 and Puma on 32.
India’s Rubel Bumra, Shami and Thakur took one wicket each.
