India were deemed to seal their first series win in South Africa after a thumping 113-run victory over the Dean Elgar-led side in Centurion. But despite being 1 down in the series, the South African team rose up to the challenge and pulled off a spectacular result, sealing a 2-1 series victory by chasing down 212 in the tense Cape Town Test.

Set 212 to win against one of the best bowling attacks in modern times, South Africa stormed to a seven-wicket win in the second session of Day 4 amid lengthening shadows and emotional

celebrations. A young Keegan Petersen played one of his best knocks to lead South Africa to a stunning win amid the DRS controversy at Newlands.

Petersen defied the conditions and played beautifully for his career-best score from 113 balls before he directed a Shardul Thakur delivery onto his stumps. It came on the back of a fine 72 in the first innings. Petersen finishes the series as the leading run-scorer with 276 in six innings, providing South Africa with some solidity in the number three position that has been missing for some time.
