Cricket: South Africa caps off incredible series with a win in third test

South Africa did something that doesn’t happen often in Test cricket these days, winning two test matches in a row chasing 200+ totals in the fourth innings. And accomplishing that against an Indian bowling attack composed of Bumrah+Shami+Thaukur+Yadav+Ashwin is surely a big success. South Africans began Test cricket as underdogs in their own backyards. Frankly, they have had a hard time winning games against quality sides but their phenomenal pace bowling combination of Jansen, Rabada, Ngidi, and Olivier showed that pace bowling is well and live in the South African circuit as they bundled a strong Indian batting lineup for low scores throughout the series. Keegan Petersen received the player of the Match honours and player of the series honours and has been a find of the series. Scoring a gutsy 80+ innings to secure the series as the South Afrians proved that they might have ushered in a new era here.
