India completed a 63 runs win over South Africa at Johannesburg, after South Africa was dismissed for 177.
Mohd Shami picked 5/28 and Ishant Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah both picked two wickets, as India romped to a win, despite South Africa being 144/2 at one stage. Dean Elgar remained not out on 86 runs and was brilliant in the way he negotiated the Indian fast bowlers.
Though India lost the series 1-2, this was the first time in Indian cricket history that Indian fast bowlers picked up 20 wickets in a Test. Before this, Ajinkya Rahane, Virat Kohli and Bhuvneshwar Kumar were brilliant with the bat as India put up a brilliant 240 runs lead on the board for Proteas to chase.
Twitter was waiting with bated breath for an India win and though the pitch looked to have eased out, spitted fire once again and South Africa were bundled out easily and India won the Test.
Here are some tweets for India’s win:
Well done India! Well fought @imVkohli! Deserved victory! Great test and series! Credit to all players! @deanelgar ... what can I say? Heart, determination, courage! Take a bow! A lesson to youngsters and parents who think only extreme talent gets u to the top...— mark boucher (@markb46) January 27, 2018
Really proud of this Indian team. This is a great test win. All 4 pace bowlers were superb and Kohli led from the front. Excellent contributions from Bhuvi and Rahane. One to cherish for a long time.— VVS Laxman (@VVSLaxman281) January 27, 2018
This is one of India's greatest ever overseas wins. Not the surface they are used to, no one would have given them a chance but the pace attack was superb and Virat led from the front.— Mohammad Kaif (@MohammadKaif) January 27, 2018
