With a 130-run lead, India came out with a worse show in the 2nd innings, getting all out for just 174. Rishab Pant was the team’s highest run-scorer with 34 runs. Kagiso Rabada and debutant Marco Jansen hunted 4-wicket hauls.

The 305-run target emerged as a big hurdle for the home team. Although Dean Elgar executed his best efforts, the SA skipper could only score 77 runs before his wickets. Temba Bavuma remained not out at 35. However, all the other batsmen could not score many runs and the team was eventually bowled out for 191 on the final day, losing the IND vs SA 1st Test match by 113 runs.
