Indian players are warm and caring, says South Africa team bus driver

South Africa's Dean Elgar scored his first half-century of the ongoing series against India at Centurion

India went down by 135 runs against South Africa but were in the game right up until day five though some will feel Kohli's dismissal on day four was when the match was lost.

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

Kohli said midway through the press conference that the team effort was not a collective one and mistakes which should not happen had cost them the game.

India, who had scored 307 runs with the help of skipper Kohli's 153 run in reply to South Africa's 335 first innings' score, were handed a 287-run target for victory in their second innings.

Kohli said, "You tell me the best XI and we will play that. We were just having a word with the umpire that the ball is wet so the ball won't swing anymore so we were having a chat about what could be done in that situation", Bumrah said at the end of the day's play. "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".

The losing captain Virat Kohli accepted they were the second best team in the contest. Now, I'm no trade expert but as long as we get to see some of that aggression on the pitch, we shall be fine.

Saints vs. Vikings: Highlights, game tracker from Divisional Round
Do you know why? Here we are 125 days later, and the Vikings and Saints are set to meet in Minnesota yet again. They became the first duo in National Football League history each gain at least 1,500 yards from scrimmage.

He continued, "It doesn't feel nice that you come out and feel good as a team and then you are not able to execute what you want to".

IN CENTURION They say you can survive a goof-up once, not twice.

"We thought the wicket was really flat to play". We have not come here just to participate. The next two highest scores for India in that innings was Murali Vijay's 46 and Ravichandran Ashwin's 38. Rabada was at St Stithians in Johannesburg, Ngidi attended Hilton College near Pietermaritzburg, the alma mater of Mike Procter among 11 other Test players before Ngidi. "These conditions were something we were used to playing in and we should have certainly done better than we have".

Kohli: "Does it matter?"

Mumbai: Former cricketer Ajit Wadekar has blamed the lack of time for Team India to "acclimatise" in South Africa for their humiliating Test series loss to the Proteas. It's a revenge of sorts for Faf du Plessis and his men, who had been blanked 3-0 when they toured India in late 2015. In case a player has accumulated 4-7 demerit points, it corresponds to 2 suspension points, 8 to 11 demerit points is converted into 4 suspension points while 12 and above translates into 6 suspension points. Picking Rohit Sharma over Ajinkya Rahane, for instance, was first to attract its share of criticism and lack of performance on part of the team only went on to lay further cracks. "It's a nice motivating factor to keep me going". So yes I think it was touching on the extreme side, but if you get that you still have to try and win. What would you put that down to and how would you basically say that you guys will continue changing your team and expect a different result?
