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:
