Sharma said in the post-match presentation, "There was something for the bowlers and I could not play my natural game."

Du Plessis (38) and Rene van der Dussen (22) put on 54 runs in 80 balls to make the innings again, but later got bowled in an attempt to reverse sweep the ball, and at regular intervals Keep wickets falling

Chris Morris (42) and Rabada (31 not out) added 66 runs for the eighth wicket, to ensure that the team scored a score, at least they got a chance.

South Africa captain du Plessis said, "I thought India was fantastic on a hard pitch. There are spinners in them, who always take wickets."

Rohit said that what we did was a century after the century.

"This is a pain in a changing room. We are trying to ensure that we are still fighting, but we keep making mistakes.
