SA vs IND Stats Review: India’s tour of South Africa 2021-22, 3rd Test

South Africa leveled the series by 1-1.

As South Africa beat India by 7 wickets in the Cape Town Test to clinch the series by 2-1, let’s look back at some relevant numbers of the match.

Final Frontier unconquered:

As South Africa clinched the series by 2-1, India will have to wait longer for their first test series win in the rainbow nation. It was the 8th Test series for India in South Africa and they lost 7 of them as the 2010-11 series was ended in a draw by 1-1.

The first time India travelled to South Africa was in 1992-93 when the hosts won the 4-match series by 1-0, In 1996-97 they beat India by 2-0 (3 matches), In 2001, Shaun Pollock led side beat India by 1-0 (2 matches), Graeme Smith & Co. beat the visitors by 2-1 (3) in 2006-07 and 1-0 (2) in 2013. Then in the last tour in 2018 Proteas under the leadership of Faf du Plessis got the better of Kohli & co. by 2-1 (3 matches).

In fact, India won just 4 test matches in South Africa- Johannesburg (2006), Durban (2010), Johannesburg (2018), Centurion (2021)

Deja-vu for Rahul Dravid:

It’s not the first time India squandered the advantage of 1-0 and ended up conceding the series by 1-2 in South Africa. In 2006-07, India under the leadership of Rahul Dravid achieved their first Test match win in the rainbow nation as they beat the hosts by 123 runs at Johannesburg to take a 1-0 lead And eventually they ended up losing the series at Cape Town by 1-2.

15 years later again, Rahul Dravid as a coach saw the same thing again as India took a 1-0 lead at Centurion and conceded the series by 1-2 at Cape Town.

Coincidentally the target for South Africa in the Cape Town test (2007) was 211 which they chased down for the loss of 5 wickets and here in 2022, their target was 212.

Catches win matches:

In this test match, all 20 wickets of India have been dismissed as ‘caught’. This is the first-ever such instance in Test cricket.

Previously there were 5 other instances where 19 wickets were dismissed as ‘caught’- Australia vs England at Brisbane 1982, Australia vs Pakistan at Sydney 2010, South Africa vs India at Durban 2010, Australia vs England at Brisbane 2013, South Africa vs England at Cape Town 2020.

Successful chasers against India:

In the 21st century, there were only 3 occasions when a team successfully chased down the target of 200+ against India in the 4th innings and South Africa was the team to do this on all 3 occasions- 211/5 at Cape Town in 2007, 243/3 at Johannesburg in 2021, 212/3 at Cape Town in 2021.

Hundred in losing cause:

Rishabh Pant’s hundred (100*) has been India’s first Test hundred for losing cause since Kohli’s 123 at Perth 2018. Overall this is the 9th Test hundred by an Indian batter to end up on the losing side in South Africa. Sachin Tendulkar appears in this list thrice while Kapil Dev, Mohammad Azharuddin, Virender Sehwag, Wasim Jaffer, and Virat Kohli are others whose hundreds went in vain in South Africa.

Luck goes for a toss:

This is the only third time when Virat Kohli won the toss and ended up on the losing side. All three occasions happened in the past 13 months- Adelaide 2020, Headingley 2021 and Cape Town 2022. Overall out of 68 tests as captain, Virat Kohli won the toss 31 times in which the team won 24 games, lost thrice while 4 games ended in a draw.
