South Africa and India to play a three-match test series

Rabada performed amazingly well in the series, in four overs he gave away just 39 runs to India. The South African squad for the T20 series is a young team. The team’s skipper Quinton de Kock guided the team to a victory. However, the star performers were the ballers who gave India just 134 runs. Shikhar Dhawan made 36 runs while Rishabh Pant and Jadeja both score 19 runs each. With this win, South Africa has levelled the three-match series by 1-1. The first match of the series was abandoned due to rain. India and South Africa are now set to play a three-match test series, which is a part of the ICC World Test Championship. The first test will be played on October 2 at Vishakapatnam.
