India showcased wonderful all-round performance to beat South Africa by an innings and 137 runs in the second Test on Sunday. By the victory, India clinches the three-Test series 2-0, thus setting a new world record of most successive Test series wins at home. India has now won 11 straight Test series at home to recover their joint-record which they held with Australia, who double won from 1994 to 2001 and 2004 to 2008.
After India enforced the follow-on on South Africa on Day 4, the audience instantly found the going hard and were ultimately bundled out for 189 runs in the 2nd innings with Umesh and Jadeja picking 3 wickets each.
South Africa began the day on a slack note; lose Markram on the second ball of the day to Sharma. His co-player, the opening partner and centurion in the 1st innings Dean Elgar tried to hold the castle for the audience but he fell to a spot shot on 48 off Ashwin’s bowling.
I think its success the accountability of being captain. If you go out scheduling a double-hundred, you will not get it. The approach has always been to help the players as much as possible, play at the beat the team involved you to, and big scores come. But the second you start thinking about the team, and all your thoughts is how to give to the team’s cause.
