Asked about the series win against the No. 1 ranked Test side in the world, du Plessis said, "Extremely special".

The Indian squad left the country filled with hope and confidence after their record-equalling nine consecutive series wins.

"There was no preparation". "It was supposed to be a tough tour and it required intense preparation".

Ngidi was something of an experimental selection when he played in three Twenty20 internationals against Sri Lanka nearly exactly a year ago.

Announcing this, the ICC said that ICC Match Referee Chris Broad imposed the fine after du Plessis's team was ruled to be two overs short of their target after time allowances were taken into consideration.

In the last series between these two sides, which was played in India in 2015-16 season, the visitors' batsmen endured a similarly hard time.

"You can accept defeat but not the way we played", Kohli said. "India have been outplayed". But the Indian team were bundled out for 151 runs.

India will travel to England and Australia later this year and with the performance against South Africa, they have certainly not increased the fans' expectations for future tours. When I got the call out I felt I was in good form. South Africa's Keshav Maharaj was dropped on 0 in the first innings of the first Test and the Proteas spinner went on to make a handy 35. Rohit Sharma top scored with 47 on the final day, but by the time he and Mohammed Shami chose to swing their bats to add 54 for the eighth wicket, the pursuit of 287 was doomed. "It is not my job to pick the team". "The previous one was more of a sense of excitement and the best one to watch, but I take a lot of pleasure out of winning games like this, where the team needs a lot of heart and a lot of character and a lot of fight to make sure we get across the line". I can't agree with that. It is also home to South Africa's cricket academy, so he can study and improve his cricket at the same time.

India could not recover from the reverse and this led to the collapse.

He asked: "How many Test matches have we won out of 34 [with Kohli as captain]?" I believe they took the day off. "Most of the guys (who are) in the (Cricket) Board haven't (ever) handled the bat".

The third and final Test will be played at Johannesburg from January 24. And then we don't sit back and think "Oh we could have done that or we should have done that".

The captain said that the team needs to do an honest introspection about the mistakes they made and each individual needs to reconsider.

Cheteshwar Pujara became the first Indian batsman to be dismissed run out in each innings of a Test.

Ngidi claimed the prize scalp of Virat Kohli on the fourth evening to put the hosts on top and was a big part of the effort that saw South Africa rout the tourists on the final day.

Proteas fast bowler Morkel is one of the players who made his feelings known about the SuperSport Park and he said it was like bowling in India.
