Team India continued their perfect start to the ICC Test Championship by beating South Africa by an innings and 202 runs in third Test to sweep the series. With the win, India won their fifth consecutive game in the ICC Test Championship. The win also helped India register their first-ever Test whitewash over the African country.

South Africa could add only one run to their overnight score of 132 for 8 before Shahbaz Nadeem dismissed Theunis de Bruyn and Lungi Ngidi on successive deliveries in just the second over of the day.

India had piled up a mammoth 497 for 9 (declared) in their first innings. Rohit Sharma starred with the bat by scoring his first Test double century. Ajinkya Rahane and Ravindra Jadeja also made big contributions by scoring a century and a fifty respectively as India recovered from 39 for 3 to post the big total.

In reply, South Africa were all out for just 162 runs in their first innings. Their fortunes did not change in the second innings either after they were asked to follow on.  They were reeling at 36 for 5 at one stage before the lower-order provided some resistance to take the score past the 100-run mark. But the fight didn’t make much difference as India wrapped up the proceedings inside two overs on day four.

And as if the win was not enough, the Indian fans got more to cheer for as fan-favourite MS Dhoni was seen in the Indian dressing room after the game. MS Dhoni, in a photograph uploaded by BCCI on Twitter, was seen talking to left-arm spinner Shahbaz Nadeem who made his debut in the Ranchi.

The former India skipper has not played international cricket since the 2019 World Cup in which India were ousted in the semi-final after a close defeat to New Zealand. He missed the ODI and T20I series in West Indies and the recently-concluded T20I series against South Africa at home.
