This is test cricket at it’s best. The most entertaining test match won by India. Visitors maintained their undefeated run at Johannesburg.However, Host takes the series but there is a lot of learning for Virat Kohli lead Indian team. India finally played their best 11 in 3rd test and they get the result. There is a lot of improvement still needed for the no1 side for an overseas tour. Their bowling is exceptional but batting need’s a concern. India comes as a complete unit for last test match. Their all 3 departments played better cricket than proteas. Especially their batting in 2nd innings. South Africa allows India’s lower order batsman to score runs freely. They dropped many crucial catches in the match.
