What is Comic Relief? Everything you need to know. By Steven Lembart on September 7, Sports. This might have been the first time the lurking shadow of DLS might have actually helped South Africa direct a chase.

Manish Pandey sheds light on the challenges he has had to combat in order to deal with his one-step-forward-two-backward international career so far. Smith talks about India's captain, and tries to put his finger on where it went wrong for the home side in the one-day series.

Graeme Smith says the year old should have been allowed to settle into the side before being made captain. South Africa will watch captain Faf du Plessis' progress till the first Test which starts from March 1, while fast bowler Dale Steyn is unlikely to be considered till the third Test. The India captain isn't a dasher like Sanath Jayasuriya. He isn't an accumulator like MS Dhoni. He has his own method of nailing chases. The correlation between intent and wickets is low in T20s.

It's more about stifling batsman and forcing them into low-percentage shots. Bhuvneshwar Kumar did just this in Jo'burg. The opener led India to , before the fast bowler took a five-wicket haul to wreck South Africa's chase in Johannesburg. The hosts' plan of bowling short to India's experienced, confident batsmen went awry when their inexperienced bowlers erred in line. Will they enjoy success in Australia, like they did in South Africa? In the earlier games, the India captain batted as per the match situation.

Now, with the result holding little value, he had licence to let himself go, and boy did he put on a show. South Africa's young captain says he is richer for the experience gained in this series, and thinks the lopsided result will spur his team on and make future victories that much sweeter. A look at why Chahal and Yadav have done well in South Africa. After easing in with wins against Bangladesh and Zimbabwe, the South Africa coach's term has turned disastrous early, with five losses in six matches against India.

Rohit Sharma showed match awareness and grit in Port Elizabeth to do just enough for India, and himself - to shed his out-of-form tag that was questionable in one-day cricket to begin with. Two weeks ago, the wicketkeeper-batsman had no inkling he would be playing for South Africa; now, his calculated, match-winning knock has turned him overnight into a star. It was a tough night for the visiting wristspinners.

But, given the odds were stacked against them, what happened here should matter much less than how they react to it. In a truncated chase at the Bull Ring, South Africa shook off their early jitters in incredible fashion to keep the series alive. The current side has almost all bases covered, for all conditions.

But there remain a few ways to beat them. The two wristspinners have turned common perception on its head with a display of unprecedented dominance. There was pace and bounce to contend with as well as a bout of cramps, and wickets kept falling around him, but India's captain, as always, found a way to score runs.

Daryll Cullinan is all praise for Kohli's placement, his footwork, and his ability to maintain the same intensity every time he steps onto the field.

The team has a belief in them, the team is backing them'. After the India captain smashed an unbeaten , Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal shared eight wickets between them to give their side an unassailable lead.

South Africa's senior-most batsman has conceded that India's wristspinners have 'assessed conditions better than us'. When conditions are anything other than perfectly batting friendly, India have the best variety of batsmen and bowlers, and the instinct, to adjust to the demands of the situation.

They might be blighted by injuries and staring at the prospect of going down, but South Africa quick Kagiso Rabada says the hosts have to be wary of overthinking their predicament. Aiden Markram is one of the most inexperienced captains ever to lead a top ODI side, taking over the reins temporarily from the injured Faf du Plessis. Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav took eight wickets between them to rout the hosts for their lowest total at home.

Fans were left bemused after umpires called lunch with India two short of their target - with nine wickets and 31 overs to spare. Despite spin bowling being reduced to a chore of not letting batsmen get under the ball, Chahal and Kuldeep are inviting them to do exactly that. When captains ask for custom-made tracks, it leads to situations like the one at the Wanderers.

In choosing the year old Aiden Markram to lead the side, South Africa are putting together a succession plan for when their big players retire. The appointment has been made with Vision - South Africa's plan for the World Cup in England - and beyond in mind. A team source told ESPNcricinfo that the pitch on day four was at its flattest, which didn't make sense; the dampness, they felt, was extraordinary and helped bind the track.

Your runs don't matter because that's how it works? Looking at the control data for the three Tests makes it clear. Marrying magic with temperament, control with flair, the two wristspinners stemmed a free-flowing South African innings, and sounded out a warning to teams around the world.

For a spinner in only his 15th ODI, the thought process Kuldeep showed was wise beyond the years, but it also takes a lot of guts to do that. South Africa captain Faf du Plessis said that while the pitch offered assistance for the spinners, South Africa's batsmen needed to adapt better and string together partnerships. The six-wicket victory was set up by India's wristspinners, Chahal and Kuldeep, who bowled 20 overs for 79 runs and took five wickets. Daryll Cullinan also says captain Faf du Plessis should keep the idea of winning before experimentation, ahead of the next World Cup.

On quicker pitches, in conditions similar to England where the World Cup will be played, Ajinkya Rahane can fit in to India's set-up as an opener or a middle-order batsman. The selectors will not name a replacement, so the squad has been trimmed to 14 players, with the likelihood of Khaya Zondo being handed a debut now higher.

Going into the ODIs, he won't have the same trepidation he might have had before the Tests. Rohit Sharma will be looking forward to this change in format. Stats from SA v India: Daryll Cullinan dissects India's batting in South Africa, and explains why most of the batsmen struggled in the Tests. India need to have the ambition to see this tour of South Africa as one of missed opportunities, and ensure they don't miss them again.

Daryl Cullinan breaks down the performance of each South Africa batsman in the Test series against India. Mohammed Shami picked up a five-wicket haul to prevent a South African whitewash. Despite playing arguably his finest Test innings, Dean Elgar suggested too great a risk had been taken with player safety when play was allowed to continue.

India's captain felt vindicated in his assessment that India came close to winning in the first two Tests of this series after a "sweet" win in Johannesburg that he compared with Lord's The immense pressure he created at one end in Johannesburg ensured South Africa were always on the hook.

They achieved the series victory, but having the final Test taken off them will hurt Faf du Plessis' side for some time to come. Uneven bounce caused a number of batsmen to take blows to the body on day three, and the future of the match looked uncertain when Dean Elgar was hit on the helmet and umpires called the players off the field.

The batsman insisted the ball that hit Dean Elgar in the helmet did not behave in an extraordinary manner, and said India, having 'prepared turners' for the home series against SA in , had expected to play on pitches like this one.

South Africa's coach said his team had not expected the exaggerated bounce and lateral movement at the Wanderers. Hashim Amla put on a special act at the Wanderers but needed some support.

He found it in unlikely quarters. Hashim Amla admitted that batsmen have not been able to settle in on the Wanderers' pitch during the ongoing Test, but would not be drawn into calling conditions extreme.

Morne Morkel and Chris Morris, who missed the Bangladesh series with injuries, also return to the squad. South Africa might not have intended to step off the gas, but perhaps they did. The allrounder wasn't a frontunner to play in this series, or in Tests at all; but he made a valuable contribution on the first day.

Nearly all the pieces are in place, but the wicketkeeper-batsman's form is a worry, particularly in a team that wants to play five bowlers. India's captain hopes his team can take inspiration from past deeds at the Bullring, particularly the Test match they dominated for large periods on their previous tour of South Africa.

Former South Africa captain Graeme Smith has raised doubts over Virat Kohli's ability to get the best out of his players in high-stress situations. Players from India's famous win in the Johannesburg Test in remember how it all went down. Judging by their net sessions at the Wanderers three days before the third Test, it seems likely that India's vice-captain will slot back into the side. South Africa's batsmen are yet to make a hundred in the series, but most of their top order has contributed at vital times.

South Africa do not name a replacement for Johannesburg, already have cover in the form of Theunis de Bruyn. This team looked more competitive than any that have toured the country in the past. The defeat can't be put down to systemic problems. Firdose Moonda finds out from Neil Johnson and the man himself.

After the kick to the gut that was their previous tour to India, South Africa really, really wanted to get their own back. And their eagerness to do so showed through clearly. Despite success in the second Test, South Africa's captain was concerned with the uncharacteristic SuperSport Park surface it was played on.

India's captain responded combatively to questions about selection and his team's overseas record in his post-match press conference. India's captain has asked every member of the team to reflect on the errors made by them during the loss in the second Test in Centurion. D Elgar , SA, Left-hand bat. K Rabada , SA, Right-arm fast.
