A formidable Indian team ticked all the boxes with ease as it completed a 3-0 rout of an out-of-sorts South Africa with an innings and 202 runs victory in the third and final Test on Tuesday.
This was India’s sixth clean sweep at home in a three-Test series and the side didn’t put a foot wrong during the three-match series, winning the first Test by 203 runs and the second one by an innings and 137 runs.
“They were ruthless and they were better than us in every department – spin bowling, fast bowling, batting and even the fielding. They are a difficult team to overcome,” Du Plessis agreed.
Pleased as punch, skipper Kohli couldn’t agree more with his opposite number.
“You guys have seen how we’re playing. Making things happen on pitches that don’t seem to offer too much, is something we’re very proud of,” Kohli summed it up aptly.
