South Africa have this won, when it comes to cricket and rugby they are tough to beat especially on their home patch.

You never write them off.

Brilliant performance this from South Africa. The opening day of the first Test was the difference that match. Since then they’ve been getting better and better every innings.

India bowled well without reward, best the bat regularly, edges falling short in the first innings and then this morning when it carries Pujara inexplicably drops it.

Meanwhile you look at Petersen’s catch at leg gully yesterday morning. The catch in the slips to remove Kohli. The game changing spells of Rabada etc. Match changing stuff, and in the end, series winning stuff.

They’ve taken 60 wickets as well this series. India currently on 43. Well played and well deserved to SA.

Wins it in style.

Not that I think it would change the result, I’m really surprised that Bumrah and Shami didn’t resume bowling after lunch.

Congratulations to South Africa. They have got a promising player in Keegan Petersen. And Jansen is going to be a star. Past 2 years have been the year of 6 7" giant debutant fast bowlers.

Has there been a bigger series upset in the last 10? 15 years?

God knows what’s going on behind the scenes with India, they’ve been genuinely embarrassed.

India beat South Africa easily in the 1st Test with Rahane making runs and both of them made 50s in the 2nd innings of the 2nd Test setting a target.

At this point, if you're making a case for Rahane, I'm suspecting you want Rahane to continue in the Indian team so that Australia bags a series win in India when they tour in a few months.

Won easily in the 1st Test, South Africa's weakness is their batting and with De Kock shock retirement from Test cricket after the 1st Test, India thought this was an easy clean sweep and first series win in South Africa.

Good series win to SA. Recon there’s a bit of Bruce Reid in Jansen

Just pointing the facts he made some runs in the first 2 Test matches, unlike Starc who only contributed in the 1st out of 4 Tests and Lyon who didn't contributed all series when he had the chance to bowl on day 5 at the SCG and Brisbane and failed.

Elgar celebrating hard and deservedly so, great effort to beat India in a test series when they lost de Kock after the first test and most people had written them off.

A lot of people in India ripping into the team for acting like w***ers. suppose it makes it worse when you end up losing
