India showed in the first test why their home record is impeccable as they outclassed the listless South Africa.
South Africa did put up a fight in the first innings through Dean Elgar and Quinton De Kock but Ashwin, Jadeja along with second innings superstar Mohommad Shami derailed them on the 5th day
Mayank Agarwal scored his maiden test 100 and converted it into a double as well but it was Rohit Sharma who took the cake with two centuries in his first test as an opener
So it’s time for SA to get back to the drawing board and look for solutions
There has been rain around Pune so it is going to be difficult to determine the kind of condition the pitch is going to be in. Historically it has been a turning track.
