Spineless Indian batting, Ngidi six-for; South Africa wins series 2-0

India lost the opening Test in Cape Town by 72 runs and followed that with another disastrous batting performance at SuperSport Park, this time on a subcontinental pitch.

Defeated captain Kohli appeared to lose his temper at the press conference. We don't decide the eleven according to the results.

"You can accept defeat but not the way we played", said Kohli.

"In Test cricket, it doesn't matter where you play; we were also beaten at home", he said.

"Similarly, when you are batting as well, you want to make big 100s and not get out so that the team can benefit from that". We don't sit here and say if you will fail in one game, you are not good enough to beat this level. But India made a decision to rope in Ishant Sharma in his place, which was baffling, given Bhuvneshwar's good show. "It is not my job to pick the team". In conditions that should suit them more than us, we adapted really well and we fought every hour to get ahead in the game. We tried but we weren't good enough, especially in the fielding department.

"South Africa collectively were a much better team than us regardless of pitches we played on". Kohli replied with a sense of agitation: "Look when something doesn't work, obviously it's going to be spoken against".

"We haven't come here to participate".

Quinton de Kock's stay in the middle was possibly the most surreal passage of play. How many have we won?

Kohli said it was not acceptable for a team to repeatedly fall prey to such soft modes of dismissals.

South Africa hold an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three match series which concludes at the Wanderers in Johannesburg.

"This time we bowled better but we didn't bat well as a unit". In case a player has accumulated 4-7 demerit points, it corresponds to 2 suspension points, 8 to 11 demerit points is converted into 4 suspension points while 12 and above translates into 6 suspension points.

Resuming their second innings at the overnight score of 90/2, the Proteas rode on the partnership of de Villiers and Elgar as they threatened to take the game away from India. Match Referee Chris Broad imposed the fine after Faf du Plessis's side was ruled to be two overs short of their target when time allowances were taken into consideration.

India thought they had du Plessis trapped in front.

"The moment for me, I think, was the captain's wicket", said Lungi Ngidi after stunning match figures of seven for 90 had won him the Man of the Match award. If you have all factors in five days or even four days the first morning at Newlands was tough but then it got good, this got tough at the end of the Test. I have asked them to be hard on themselves. "In the past I didn t know what I was doing to be honest but now I have found my feet, the right path that I am going down and the right formula for me as a cricketer".

India are chasing 287 for victory to square the three-match series, but that looks a long way off on a wicket providing extreme variable bounce.
