South Africa clinch Cape Town Test:

South Africa clinch: When India tour of South Africa started everyone thought that it is going to be very easy for star-studded India to claim their first-ever test series win on Africa soil, South Africa whose been going through its transition phase, had absolutely no chance against a well-established Indian team, and by the time the first, match of the series ended it became quite obvious that it is going to be an easy ride for India.

But in the second match of the series, the African team let the world know that winning a series is not that easy on their soil, now when the decider of the series started with Kohli back with the Indian side, the pendulum shifted slightly towards the Indian side.

Although the South African team managed to stop the Indian batters on the score of 223 they also got bundled out on 210 giving India a lead of 13 runs.

But again the Africa bowlers were up for the task and they bundled out the Indian batting line up on the score of 198 runs with a lead of just 211 to their name. with just 212 runs to win the series, the South Africa team achieved the target without any problem, for South Africa it was Keegan Peterson who scored fifty in both the innings of the series decider. as the South Africa team wins the third match they also claimed the series with a margin of 2-1,

For the Indian team, they seriously need to look into their middle order especially with their number 3 and number, Pujara and Rahane who’s been out of form for quite a long time.

The form of both these batters had been under the radar but the management keep on backing them, but the results aren’t coming and it is high for the Indian management to take some serious action.
