Besides, KL Rahul, who scored a century, India were lead by its pacers—Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah. While the former went onto take a fifer, latter got India crucial breakthroughs in the second innings. Kohli added India were in ‘pole position’ after scoring more than 300 in the first innings. “Credit to Mayank and KL the way they set it up. We knew we were in pole position with anything over 300-320. Knew the bowlers will do the job. Spoke about it in the change room – the fact he didn’t bowl much in the first innings, it allowed SA to get around 40 more runs (Bumrah). Just the way these guys bowl together has been a hallmark of our team getting a result in difficult situations”
