MS Dhoni paid a visit to Virat Kohli and his conquering army following India’s emphatic 3-0 series win over South Africa at the Jharkhand States Cricket Stadium (JSCA) in Ranchi. India, who needed just two overs and nine minutes on Day 4 of the 3rd Test match to beat South Africa by an innings and 202 runs, completed their first Test series whitewash over the Proteas and also registered 11 straight series victory at home – a first in Test cricket. The victory served as a double bonanza for team India, who were joined by the local boy and former Indian Test captain Dhoni in the dressing room. Netizens, who had been longing for the World Cup-winning captain to turn-up at the ground during the Test match, were also excited on seeing Dhoni. India Vs South Africa, Highlights And Cricket Score 3rd Test Match.

The excitement on the faces of the Indian players – following the record-breaking series victory and the presence of MS Dhoni – was palpable. And it was later also visible in the voice of skipper Virat Kohli, who invited a journalist to visit the Indian team’s dressing room and meet Dhoni, on being asked if the Indian team had any plans to visit Dhoni’s house with the Test match over inside four days.

Meanwhile, this was the first time India clean swept a Test series over South Africa. India beat South Africa by 203 runs in the first Test at Visakhapatnam before also crushing them by an innings and 137 as well as by an innings and 202 runs in the following two games to complete a 3-0 victory.

The series victory – India’s second consecutive Test series win – also strengthened India’s stay at the top of the ICC World Test Championship points table. India, after five Test matches, have 240 points. New Zealand, on second, are 180 behind with three fewer games.
