In a match that was marred by a "dangerous" pitch, India fought all the way to secure their first victory of the tour and keep their record of being unbeaten at the Wanderers. The Twitterati, unsurprisingly, went berserk after the Indian team capped off a memorable overseas test victory.
Brief scores : India 187 (Virat Kohli 54, Cheteshwar Pujara 50; Kagiso Rabada 3/39, Andile Phehlukwayo 2/25) & 247 (Ajinkya Rahane 48, Virat Kohli 41; Morne Morkel 3/47, Vernon Philander 3/61) beat South Africa 194 (Hashim Amla 61, Vernon Philander 35; Jasprit Bumrah 5/54; Bhuvneshwar Kumar 3/44) & 177 ( Dean Elgar 86*, Hashim Amla 52; Mohammed Shami 5/28) by 63 runs.Here are the tweets from the game:Oh, what a sight it was!
This would've haunted every Indian fan!
Can Elgar produce a Laxman Mohali 2010 knock here? #SAvIND— Jonathan Augustus (@JCAugustus) January 27, 2018
