The 2nd Test match in Cape Town between India and South Africa didn’t only see the Indian team level the series but also register their first-ever victory at the Newlands. This might have been one of the shortest and most bizarre Test matches in the history of cricket, where over 30 wickets fell in just two days. However, it is still a great achievement by the team who were also coming back from a disappointing Boxing Day Test match at Centurion. This was a game Rohit Sharma and co will be proud of how his team has come back after losing the first test match.

However, even after the famous win, there was still some massive criticism from the media regarding India’s performance in the game along with the talks of Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli being available for the Afghanistan T20I series. There is still a huge debate on this topic since both Hardik Pandya and Surya Kumar Yadav are unavailable due to injury with their playing in the future also being a concern. With the Test series against England also coming up it’s highly unlikely for both these Indian stalwarts to play.

The interactions with the media are always a treat to watch, where we get to hear the views of the players on the game and what their next plans are. However, there are certain questions asked by the reporters that are just asked to get the channels some attraction and some spicy stories to create.

Rohit replies in a calm and collected manner saying “Dimaag laga rahe ho aap (You are using your brain)...let's concentrate on Cape Town now". Straight away avoiding the question and talk about the concluded Test match.
