After some great work from the bowlers, yet again, restricting SA to a sub-par score of 130 in the second innings, Indian batsman crumbled under pressure once again scoring just 5 more runs than their opponents. The Twitterati were in no mood to let the collapse slide and came out in numbers.
Brief scores : South Africa 286 (AB de Villiers 65, Faf du Plessis 62; Bhuvneshwar Kumar 4-87) & 130 (AB de Villiers 35, Aiden Markram 34; Mohammad Shami 3/28, Jasprit Bumrah 3/39) beat India 209 (Hardik Pandya 93; Kagiso Rabada 3-34, Vernon Philander 3-33) & 135 (R Ashwin 37, Virat Kohli 28; Vernon Philander 6/42, Morne Morkel 2/39) by 72 runs.
