The massive victory by an innings and 137 runs took India’s points tally in the ICC World Test Championship points table to 200 points, 140 more than second-placed New Zealand, who have played two fewer games.

Things have been extreme for Faf du Plessis-led South Africa in the three-match Test series and it has only got tougher following to the injury to Keshav Maharaj, who has by far been South Africa’s best performer both the with the ball and bat. The Proteas have already squandered the three-match series without even producing a fight.
India’s home dominance has always invited criticism for the use of spin and some pitches that have turned from the outset. It is quite a conundrum as when India travel abroad, they are expected to adjust to seaming and pace-friendly conditions. However, the spin-friendly tracks have traditionally been looked down upon.
The Ranchi wicket is expected to be a spin-friendly track. So, spinners of both sides will have the responsibility to go through the opposition batting line-up. India’s spin twin Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin are enjoying a phenomenal run in the series and will aim to extend their purple patch.
The South Africa captain, who has now lost nine successive tosses in Asia, will be sending out someone else to toss the coin in the final Test starting Saturday at the JSCA International Complex Stadium. According to a report in Cricbuzz, du Plessis revealed this in a pre-match press conference.
The second in Pune saw a flurry of records crashed by the Indian team which left the opposition awestruck. India just didn’t take an unassailable 2-0 lead but also became the first side to win 11 consecutive Test series at home. Virat Kohli, who scored a splendid double ton in the previous match, is in stellar form and will be the opposition’s biggest threat.
Markram, who averaged only 11 in the two tests played against India, felt he was letting his team down."It's sad to be going home on this note and I completely understand what I've done wrong and take full accountability for it. It's unacceptable in a Proteas environment and to let the team down is what hurts me the most," said Markram.
