Thats Over! South Africa Beat India By 135 Runs And Win The Series

SA Win 2nd Test

Pace, bounce, inswing, outswing it was all there in South Africa which wait for India to take the revenge of that 2015 tour of India where India brutally beat South Africa on the ranked turner in India.

India lost the second match by 135 runs and so with this win, South Africa already win the series with third and last test still remaining in the series. With this loss, it was the end of Virat Kohli honeymoon period where he won 9 consecutive series.

This series must be the eye opener for Indian team and skipper Virat Kohli. His team selection in this test always raises some serious question where he dropped inform Bhuvneshwar in place of Ishant Sharma. Rohit continuously makes his place in the playing XI despite the good record of Rahane in South Africa.

Fielding is far below the standard for Indians. Their wicketkeeper fails to anticipate the ball and too against the strong South African side.

287 is always a difficult target against the quality of Rabada, Morkel, Philander and debutant Nigdi who takes 6 wickets in the second inning including the wicket of Virat Kohli.

India needs to up their standard in batting and fielding. Their bowlers doing a fantastic job. The third test will start from 24 January in Johannesburg. The wicket of Johannesburg is also pacy so if India fail to improve again in third test then whitewash will not far away.
