SA vs IND: Twitter reacts to South Africa’s 7-wicket victory against India in Johannesburg – On Day 4 of the Johannesburg Test, Dean Elgar performed a captain’s knock in the fourth innings, leading South Africa to a comfortable 7-wicket victory over India.

In the second Test, KL Rahul chose to bat first in the hopes of duplicating their success from the first. On Day 1, however, the Proteas bowling assault was too strong, as they bowled out the visitors for 202 runs.

In response, the Africans stumbled their way to a 27-run advantage via to Temba Bavuma’s fifty. Shardul Thakur was the star on the field, finishing with career-best numbers of 7/61, the best by an Indian on Protean soil.

The lead appeared to be pretty large as the pitch continued to play tricks. In the third innings, Rahul and Mayank Agarwal struggled to get going, but a 111-run partnership between Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane saved India and their careers.

Unfortunately for the visitors, they fell once more as Kagiso Rabada produced a match-changing spell. He took three wickets in a short period of time, putting South Africa back on top. India reached 266 before folding, establishing a target of 240 on the board, thanks to several lower-order cameos.

It was supposed to be a difficult chase for the Africans, but Elgar stood tall and formed partnerships with Aiden Markram, Keegan Petersen, and Rassie van der Dussen, including the match-winning 82-run partnership. He finished unbeaten on 96 and contributed to his team’s best chase in Johannesburg.
