With 17 runs trail, India once again went out to bat but didn't get enough support from the openers. However, Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane played a career-saving inning of 53 and 58 runs respectively.

After losing the match against South Africa, KL Rahul said, "Every Test match we play, we want to win, we go out there and compete hard, but South Africa played really well and deserved this victory.

We were looking to get on the field today, try and do something special, 122 to get, the pitch was playing up and down, we had a good chance, but their batters played really well.

If I want to be harsh, the first innings total of 202 was at least 50-60 runs short, we should have scored more and put them under pressure," KL Rahul was quoted as same as in Cricbuzz.

After that, the skipper of South Africa Dean Elgar has also shared a few words and claimed, "I don't know what's the right or wrong way in winning a cricket match, but it's all about doing the basics right. We ticked a lot of boxes right to make it 1-1.

We now go to Cape Town with plenty of confidence - it wasn't easy, the batters were determined. but credit to our bowlers, the effort they put in was very impressive."
