After a dismal performance in the shorter format, South Africa had high hopes riding on them for the Test Series which to everyone’s surprise has been remarkably one-sided. After winning the second test by an Inning and 137 runs.
After winning the first test at Dharamshala convincingly India came into the second test with a lot of confidence, they went in to bat first in the first innings and made it a one-sided affair when they scored a mammoth 601-5d.
It all started with M Agarwal‘s brilliant century scoring 108 runs in the first innings but the man of the show was the king himself “Virat Kohli“. As he came in and totally dominated the already down and under the South African side. Virat scored 254 runs and was not out when India decided to declare the innings. Virat was simply jubilant on scoring a double century. Only K Rabada had some success with the ball as he managed to get 3 wickets in a dead rubber.
South Africa was playing for the draw right from the first ball. It was dead flat pitch but the Indian cricket team made use of the conditions rather beautifully not only in batting but also when they were bowling. Umesh Yadav and R Ashwin ensured that South Africa gets no way near to the Indian total and got South African Batters out for 275 runs.
