Highlights, India vs South Africa, 3rd Test, Day 4 at Johannesburg, Full Cricket Score: India win by 63 runs; series ends 2-1

Elgar's four and a six off the previous over leave Ngidi to face Shami in the latter's 13th over, with Shami completing a memorable five-wicket haul by getting the tail-ender caught behind off the third delivery of the over. Not that the umpire gives it out straightaway — with Kohli successfully overturning it by going for the review. India maintain their unbeaten run at the Wanderers by notching up their second win at the venue. Spare a thought for Elgar, who carried his bat throughout the innings to remain unbeaten on 86. Shami, on the other hand, once again shines in the second innings of a match, and is now a serious contender for the 'Man of the Match' award.
