Here is what they had to say through some of their reactions:


How India conquered Centurion

South Africa had lost four wickets overnight and were nearing the three-figure mark. On Day 5, the hosts got off to a brisk start as both Temba Bavuma and Dean Elgar were right on the money with their timing and strokeplay. Just when the partnership was looking dangerous, India’s man for all seasons Jasprit Bumrah struck gold as he trapped Elgar right in front for 77.

Quinton de Kock and Temba Bavuma got together and the attempt was made to step up the run-scoring. But just when De Kock looked dangerous to take the game away from India, he chopped one on off the bowling of Mohammed Siraj. Mohammed Shami got the wicket of Wiaan Mulder and India went into lunch with three wickets of South Africa remaining.

After lunch, Shami removed Marco Jansen and the writing was on the wall. Ravichandran Ashwin was introduced into the attack with a view to entice the likes of Kagiso Rabada to go for the big shots. The ploy worked as Ashwin got the wickets of Rabada and Lungi Ngidi of consecutive deliveries and India scripted history.
