The third game between the Proteas and the Men in Blue ended. After a roller coaster in the first three days of the last Test, the closing day wasn’t a one-team show.
After the third day, South Africa needed 111 runs when they stopped visitors in the 67 over with 198 runs of the second innings. As the first two days finished in the close scorecard, the conclusive attempt by the Proteas should decide the fate of the encounter. And that was a superb performance with only three wickets lost. The hosts closed in the series in the 64 over, successfully chasing the strong opponent.
