India claim consolation victory in third test against Proteas

No team has a problem with either a bouncy, seaming or turning track. We want to correct certain mistakes with the bat.

Captain Virat Kohli described Saturday's 63-run win over South Africa in the third and final Test at the Wanderers as "a massive milestone" for Indian cricket.

The fate of the match hung in balance, with the umpires having a word both with match referee Andy Pycroft as well as the two captains after calling the players off the field.

"This is the wicket they prepared We also batted on it". "When Hashim Amla got 60-odd in the first innings, no one was talking about that", Rahane said.

Prior to that occurring, South Africa were set a target of 241 to win, but lost opener Aiden Markram early on in their chase.

The blow to Elgar's helmet came after he was hit on the right hand, and then in the midriff. "Umpires are the final judges on the fitness of the ground, regardless of the views of either of the captains".

That India managed to score 99 runs in the session is indicative of how well they've played but also how poorly South Africa bowled. The umpires inspected the surface half a dozen times and may even call of play on Saturday but that is not in the hands of the Indians but Kohli and Vijay remained unfazed by the unsafe conditions.

WICKET! Morne Morkel strikes as Cheteshwar Pujara departs, India lose third wicket. In a series in which batsmen have struggled to put together meaningful partnerships, his 55-run stand with Rahane in India's second innings was the second time he added 50 or more runs with a partner in these Tests. Rahane was left out of the first two Tests in favour of Rohit Sharma. If South Africa had completed a 3-0 series sweep they would have drawn level on points with Kohli's men. Cutting in viciously, it broke Kohli's defence and sent the off-stump for a walk in the park. "But once it is hitting the face or the head, that's why the match refs walked off the field".

The game could go either ways as the lead read only 141.

Contrary to India's stand, Moosajee indicated that he felt that the pitch was indeed risky and not fit for play.

Since readmission the team batting first in Test matches at the Wanderers has averaged 302. They no longer wish to be tigers at home only.

India vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane said: "That ball (Elgar) was back of length, hard length". Considering the pace of the ball, it was a good diving take by the keeper down the leg side. Ajinkya Rahane, who was not included in the playing XI in the last two tests, returned to the side along with Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

Vernon Philander picked up the only wicket of Patel.

Hardik Pandya was the next to depart after scoring just four runs, as it was Rabada yet again who did the damage.
