India vs South Africa, 3rd Test, Johannesburg, Jan 24 – 27 2018, South Africa v India 2018

Match Result: India won by 63 runs

Player of the Match: Bhuvneshwar Kumar

Match Report: Kohli domination all the way. Virat Kohli has been thrown out of the captaincy seat of ODIs and Rohit Sharma has been sworn in. Many fans are disappointed with this decision, and its not just the Kohli fans that are upset. This year, 2021, was indeed one of the toughest years and season Kohli has faced. As we end 2021 in 8 days, many of us know that this year was probably the final year of Kohli dominating the cricket world. He might dominate with his batting, but now he is not in absolute power.

The upcoming tour of SA is a chance for Kohli to prove, or should I say, prove again, that he indeed is the face of cricketing world. He might be going through a tough phase as a professional cricketer, but it is the attitude of Kohli that one can take away from him.

Virat Kohli: “Lovely. We required some character playing on a pitch that was very difficult. I think our guys showed great guts throug hthe four days. We took the challenge. Batting first wasn’t a call that went down well with some people, but we knew it was the right call. We knew we were close in the first two games. This was perfect. Elgar and Amla played really well, although it was not easy. You expect that from South Africa. But one thing I know is that when wickets go down, in pressure situations, its very difficult to come back.

And the other good thing was we didn’t leak runs. The bowlers are a big positive. Sixty wickets in a series is rare, and if the batsmen step up, they understand they need to and they did in this game and the win feels really great. Need bowlers confident to win Tests and as batsmen, we need to think about our game, prepare better and I’m sure we can win more often away from home.

Faf du Plessiss | Winning captain: “I think India outplayed us in this Test. We didn’t take our chances. We were just sloppy. From a bowling point of view, we weren’t consistent. Our fielding was pretty average. And with the bat, it was tough conditions. We were surprised how well the pitch played this morning, Hashim and Dean great partnership. But the history of this wicket tells you the ball does a bit more late in the day. We can only blame ourselves. Extremely happy to win the series. But if you told me 2-1 before this series, I would’ve bitten the hand off. India have played great wicket, but we were deserved winnings. Lot of one-day cricket against a very strong Indian team, and then Australia, and we will take confidence into there.”
