Shami brilliance, Jadeja guile in India win

Shami brilliance, Jadeja guile in India win”

The match also witnessed the most number of sixes - 37 from four innings - surpassing the 35 that were smashed in a game between Pakistan and New Zealand in 2014-15.

Rohit's performance helped the Indian team beat South Africa at the ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium in Visakhapatnam by 203 runs.

Kohli also was effusive in his praise for Rohit Sharma, who scored centuries in both the innings of his debut match as a Test opener, and Mayank Agarwal, who hit his maiden Test ton. "I think so there is enough rough for spinners and the cracks will open up bit more on day five", India's ever-dependable No 3 said.

Debutant Senuran Muthusamy (49 not out) and Dane Piedt (56 off 107) delayed the inevitable with a fighting 91-run stand for ninth wicket after South Africa collapsed to 70 for eight in the morning.

Chasing a monumental target of 503 runs in the first innings, Dean Elgar scored an astonishing century against the blues.

Meanwhile, Shami continued his domination in the second innings of a test match as he had already taken 4 wickets and threw the Proteas out of the match.

"Getting 400 in that second innings (of the match), we felt we were right in the game".

Asked if the Indian pacers are now playing a more significant role in India's Test victories Kohli said: "It's all about the attitude. And with variable bounce, even the fast bowlers will come into play". It was the first instance for an Indian pacer in worldwide cricket with four bowled wickets.

Four of his five wickets were bowled dismissals. He had to fight a lot of negativity as he geared up for the first Test as a Test opener.

"[But] the batting at the No. 7 and 8 position, it's always something that we are really looking for as a team".

Shami broke the spine of the South Africa middle order by taking the wickets of Temba Bavuma, Faf du Plessis and Quinton de Kock. Returning back to India after a forgettable West Indies series, the opener slammed a double hundred, showcasing why he is one of the best openers in the longest format on Indian surfaces.

India made a very good start on the fifth day of the match, Ravichandran Ashwin dismissed Thunis de Bruyn as soon as he came. "When you are batting with the tail, I can take the game on as well".
