South Africa won the 2nd test by 135 runs
SA has now taken an unassailable lead of 2-0 With one more match to go.
Magical and dream debut for Lungi Ngidi. He picked 7 wickets in the match. Breaks the Indian batting lineup in the 2nd innings by taking 6 wickets.
India’s search for 10th consecutive series wins halt with the loss.
Impressive all-around performance by Proteas. Especially AB d Villiers he is superhuman in the cricket field. He is the one of the constant major difference between the two sides. His Brilliant throw to run out Cheteshwar Pujara and Brilliant diving forward catch of Rohit Sharma was the important moments for South Africa in day 5.
India’s lack of composure and losing important moments are the reason for their back to back losses in two test matches and series. India team have their chances to down SA. When they put them under pressure with 2 wickets on just 3 runs. But they again allowed AB D Villiers to settle and hammer Indian bowler. The partnership in the middle order is another aspect which differs both sides. SA creates crucial partnership whenever they need. While India failed to create any Concrete stand in the middle order.
I mightily aspired by the South African bowlers they are on the money all the time. They have their plans for each batsman of the Indian team. They set up Virat Kohli to get him out. Their fielding is just exceptional. They hardly dropped any catches. While India dropped many catches few by the Wicketkeeper itself.
Indian team management has to define the role of his player. Indian bowling is good but Their batsman is out of responsibility. Two run-out in one match of Cheteshwar Pujara was an example of irresponsible attitude in the cricket field.
If India want’s a success in the overseas tour. Then they have to select properly balanced side. Each player should have the proper set of responsibility. Overloading on Virat Kohli was not the good exhibition of character from the Indian team.
Note: Lungi Ngidi was declared player of the match.
The 3rd match of the series will be played on 24 January at Johannesburg.
