PLAYER OF THE MATCH
Lungisani Ngidi





Ngidi – Player of the Match: “The moment hasn’t really sunk in. I am very chuffed with my performance and I’m very happy at the moment. Been a quick turnaround for me. I was in good nick in franchise cricket. I came out here to try pretty much what I could do. The support was great at my home ground. It’s a great moment. I tried to keep it simple: keep it outside off. There was a bit of movement outside off and one nipped in and got the wicket. Adapting to conditions was important. We had to deal with the conditions we were given.”

Du Plessis – captain, South Africa: “It took a lot of hard work over the last five days. We were on top pretty much most of the times. One of the harder Tests, given it was tough to pick wickets. After Day 1, we were very disappointed. In that last 45 mins, we gave India a sniff but we made sure we showed charated over the last four days. We were short in the first innings. We needed to get 400 but for me the vital time was the second innings. We kept pushing and we knew anything over 250 would be challenging. Special performance by Ngidi. He’s a great guy and we welcome him into the team. I look at the person’s personality and he’s a wonderful human being. Morne’s catch was better than AB’s. Morne is going to tell us a lot about that catch over the next few days. Taking him catch that was a beautiful sight.”
Kohli – captain, India: “We thought the wicket was really flat. Quite surprising. I told the guys the wicket looks different to what it looked before toss. Especially after SA lost wickets in the first inn, we should have capitalized. We failed to get a good partnership and take lead. We have let ourselves down. The bowlers have done the job but the batsmen have let the team down. I want to leave everything on the field. That’s the way I play. 150 odd means nothing now that we have lost the series. If we had won, even a 30 would have mattered more. As a team, you want to win collectively. We tried but we weren’t good enough, espeically in the fielding department. That’s why they are the winner.”
