IND vs SA: Rohit & Co. Create History in Cape Town, Win 1st Time Test Here

IND vs SA: Jasprit Bhumrah’s six-wicket haul on Day 2 of the final series match at Newlands was pivotal. Aiden Markram made an outstanding century performance for South Africa, but Rohit Sharma and Co. won by seven wickets as they all out for just 176 runs after being bowled out earlier.

Dean Elgar’s final Test brought India its first win ever at Cape Town while levelling off their series 1-1. On the opening day of South Africa vs India’s New Year Test Match in Cape Town, 23 wickets fell.

Mohammed Siraj’s six-wicket haul in the opening session at Newlands in the series decider broke apart the Proteas lineup and precipitated an incredible collapse by the hosts’ batters.

Siraj’s career-best 6-15 set the stage for Rohit Sharma and Co. in their Cape Town opener against South Africa to score 55 runs. Unfortunately, India experienced another setback during Elgar’s final Test when South Africa recovered after the tea break;

Lungi Ngidi bowled an amazing triple-wicket maiden that turned the tie around, while Kagiso Rabada combined forces with Ngidi for two wickets in 11 deliveries to turn things around further.

Nandre burger took three wickets just before tea break to help Ngidi & Rabada remain competitive while Rohit and Co. recovered from their initial collapse to restrict South Africa to just 62-3 runs in 17 overs on Day 1 of Cape Town decider, Elgar being dismissed twice on this opening day of testing;

IND Won By Seven Wickets In Cape Town To Tie The Series At 1-1

Well, that’s it – it’s over. Indian fans will likely feel joy at the conclusion, while South Africans might be left feeling somewhat bittersweet about the series’ implications for Test matches and cricket in general.

Time will tell how it ranks overall; perhaps old-school cricket fans won’t understand some of the narratives developed throughout it (such as Broad versus Warner during Ashes).

Another consideration: whether India was involved would affect how successful such two-match Series are; also, this marks Dean Elgar’s cricket career and what many see as the end of an era in Test cricket – means this Series may mark Dean Elgar’s cricket career (many would consider).

Jasprit Bumrah Wins The Player Of The Series Award

This ground will always hold a special place in my heart; it was where it all started and will always remain a fond memory.

Our journey began in 2018 when we decided to make an impactful statement through spinners in India doing more work, our bowling unit being experienced enough and being willing to fight through changes within our team, especially as spinners are used more than usual, also going through changes within ourselves we fought until the very last match;

Taking patience through it all is not easy, but I was glad this game went by so quickly; also we wanted to bat first, but test cricket can always throws up surprises on any given day – what an incredible series it all was.

Dean Elgar, The Winner Of The Player of the Series

Wish I’d done more in this game. Still very proud of my performance in Centurion; it feels great being able to contribute towards an important cause.

Conditions were difficult throughout, but the 3-Test Series would have been incredible – Bumrah deserves recognition for his superb abilities, making for exciting challenges as you strive to test yourself.

But we made great memories together over our journey together; thank goodness they won’t have to face us again soon enough. I am extremely thankful to have played alongside them.

Mohammed Siraj, After Winning Player of the Match

This is my best score in Test cricket history. I focused on hitting the right spots and being consistent. After my previous match was such an embarrassment due to lack of consistency, I worked tirelessly on improving it and was relentless with my lengths.

Bumrah receives information faster when we play together, so we’re trying to analyse wickets more quickly as a pair. (Message to Fans) Thank you so much, and please continue supporting the Indian cricket team and me.

Dean Elgar, After The Game

India bowled brilliantly and exploited the conditions. Our young players still had much to be proud of in terms of effort; the 1-1 result was an outstanding achievement compared to what would have been possible had they won both innings 2-0. Aiden batted brilliantly during both innings, as evidenced by India’s bowling.
