Virat Kohli-led Team India’s dream for a maiden Test sequence win on South African soil ended on Friday because the Proteas romped in direction of a seven-wicket win within the third and ultimate Test in Cape Town. With the win, the Proteas accomplished a come-from-behind sequence victory (2-1), after having misplaced the primary Test by 113 runs.
On Day three of the Test on Thursday, India had set a goal of 212 for the Proteas after Rishabh Pant’s ton took the guests to 198 within the second innings.
Amidst a day overshadowed by a DRS controversy, the Proteas managed to place up 101/2 on the finish of Day 3, having misplaced openers Markram and Elgar.
Keegan Peterson was the one one to depart on Day 4 after a superb knock of 82, and shortly after lunch, Rassie van der Dussen (41*) and Temba Bavuma (32*).
Here’s how Twitterati reacted to South Africa’s sequence win:

SA chasing 200+ twice to win matches, within the 4th inns, on robust pitches, towards in all probability India’s finest bowling lineup of their Test historical past, deserves loads of reward.

SA win 2-1. Kudos to a younger staff… they realized India had one weak spot and went to work on it after the primary innings in Centurion. Hopefully this win returns SA cricket again to well being. #SAvInd

Incredible turnaround by a younger South African staff. Lost all tosses. Lost Nortje earlier than a ball bowled. De Kock after the primary Test. Chased down 200+ within the fourth innings twice. Tenacity is what makes SAF the cricketing nation it’s…preserve preventing perpetually. 🙇♂️

Your choose as Man of the Series? My contenders are Rabada, Jansen and Peterson. Since bowlers received a lot assist from pitches, batsman making runs extra deserving. And Peterson’s finished this stylishly. But debutant Jansen claiming 19 wickets can’t be ignored even when Rabada received 20
