India, who have won all three tests they have played under the umbrella of the inaugural ICC World Test Championship, were in dominant form in the first test in Vishakhapatnam. Rohit Sharma hit a century in each innings, having opened the batting in the longest format for the first time, to help guide the hosts to victory.
South Africa were still in contention after the first innings, trailing by 71 at that point, but their bowlers were unable to make inroads as India set a big target and then ripped through the Proteas’ middle order in the second test. They have now lost three consecutive tests, having been beaten by Sri Lanka last time out too.
