India vs South Africa, Highlights, 3rd Test Day 4 at Ranchi, Full Cricket Score: Dominance tells about mindset of team, says Kohli

So that's all we have for today. A short day of cricket because Indian wrapped it up very early. Victory by an innings and 202 runs and also taking the series 3-0. Dominance is the word here. South Africa have a lot to contemplate. They put up 400 runs in the first innings of the first Test but that's it. The batsmen failed to make it count at the crucial stages of the matches. 

Thank you for joining with us. Hope you have enjoyed the coverage of the match and the series. We will see you again soon. Have a good day!

Of late, there has been a talk of a hypothetical World XI, which can at least compete against this Indian team at their own backward. However, the way Virat Kohli's boys are playing at this point, it will be tough even for that Rest of the World XI to beat Virat Kohli's men. Think India are well on their way to become the new invincibles at home.

Virat Kohli: "Amazing. The way we've been playing, the way we've come off age, it tells about the mindset of the team. Even when we went abroad, we competed well, we were there in every match. To be the best side in the world, you need to be multi-dimensional. The fielders are also working hard. The catching has been brilliant. It's great to see when you operate in such way."

Rohit Sharma is both Man of the Match and Man of the Series!

Rohit: I said it before, I am thankful to management for considering me for opening slot. I take a lot of positive, especially how to counter the new ball. It was a great learning experience for me. I will take my game forward from here,. I don't want to let it go. 

I realised very soon that you need to have some discipline at start of your innings, I try to follow a certain template to have some success. There are lot of aspects that you need to be mindful of. I had support of management and captain. 

Test cricket is a different ball game, getting that big score gives confidence going forward. I was trying to be mindful of not throwing my wicket. I wanted to be there and bat for as long as possible to put the team in a good position.

Rohit Sharma is the man of the match, and also gets the man of the series award.

Faf du Plessis at the presentation: "That's the frustrating part for us. Only the first innings of the first Test was good for us. Credit to the Indian team. They were ruthless. The spinners, the pace department and the fielding as well. A lot of young guys are coming through. It has been a really tough series for us. Maybe when we come back next time, we can perform better."

Agree?

Along with the landmarks of Rohit and Rahane with the bat, I think the biggest takeaway for India from this game is the way Shami and Umesh had bowled on this scratchy pitch. They literally intimidated the Proteas with their pace and accuracy. Also, Nadeem has a memorable debut, finishing the match with figures of 4 for 40.

Ravi Shastri, India head coach: We did not care of pitch. We wanted 20 wickets. Whether it is Jo'burg or Mumbai, we look to remove the pitch factor and look to pick up 20 wickets. We wanted a team effort to take those wickets. And if our batting clicks, then everything is sorted. If you have bowlers who can take 20 wickets, we are good. Rahane was always going to play in middle order. He wanted to rediscover and he did that. Rohit Sharma was outstanding. He survived the first two hours on Day 1 morning session. Ball hit him on pads, beat him but he managed to survive. Dada ek hi hota hai, the opening batsman. 

I am extremely impressed by Nadeem. When he took the first wicket, I was like Bishan Singh Bedi must be watching and would have raised a toast for him. 420 plus FC wickets. He has put in the yards. It is his home crowd he starts his first Test and made it count. He bowled first three overs as maidens. He has experience he has to come out and perform. 

It is a team effort. Normally, you have two players taking the limelight. Here you have 7 to 8 players who contribute every time.

Mohammed Shami: "We are always well prepared to bowl on Indian tracks. Virat Kohli also gives us confident with his captaincy. The team management is also helping us. A lot of things are going right for us. The fitness of the bowlers have improved, the team is also enjoying their cricket." 

India vs South Africa, 3rd Test, Day 4, Latest Updates: So it's all over. India take the series 3-0 after winning the third Test by an innings and 202 runs. Totally outplayed their opponents. It's an all-round performance by the team. The spinner, pacers and the batsmen did their job really well.A horrible tour for South Africa.

Day 3 report: India is two wickets from a 3-0 series whitewash after South Africa finished the third day at 132-8 following on in their second innings on Monday.

Mohammed Shami (3-10) and Umesh Yadav (2-35) shared five wickets. The visitors are still 203 runs adrift of India's first innings total of 497-9.

After tea, South Africa lost four more wickets as India tried to wrap up proceedings. Yadav trapped Heinrich Klassen (5) lbw to reduce the visitors to 36-5. Indian spinners then got into the act with light fading away.

Ravindra Jadeja (1-36) bowled Dane Piedt (23) while Ravichandran Ashwin got his first wicket of the game when Kagiso Rabada (12) holed out.

Debutant Shahbaz Nadeem ran out George Linde (27) to add to his brace from the first innings.

After being hit by Yadav prior to tea, Dean Elgar, who retired hurt on 16, didn't come out to bat after the break and South Africa opted for Theunis de Bruyn as his concussion replacement. At stumps, de Bruyn was batting on 30 not out with Anrich Nortje 5 not out.

Sixteen wickets fell during the third day's play with South Africa staring at a third straight defeat in this one-sided series.
