South Africa is missing their theme. They are a unit known for their All round ability, all rounders . BUt this thing is missing completely from current South African XI. That was one of the most obvious reason for their loss in this match. BUt , if you go by their tradition in such matches , they really did justice to it once again. INDIANS have pulled off such victory many more in recent time. This is the mixture of bit f luck and whole lots of confidence which this current Indian team has got. But what was more than anything in this match was cricket winning once again. When top 2 are in the centre to have a battle, you can see such games anytime no matter the match is spread over five days or completes in just 8 hours.
