India are still the champs of the world

What an super exciting last day of Test cricket.It provided a perfect finish to a very well fought out series.India,having lost most of the 4th day to rain and bad light,had to get 7 wickets to make sure they weren't dethroned.SA after being 115-3 overnight,lost wickets continuesly all day,with Hashim Amla playing anchor once again.Amla showed great powers of concentration and fought right till the end.This was his 3rd ton in as many innings.However,after losing Zaheer due to an injury,indians had thier bowling attack under far more pressure.Ishant Sharma bowled his heart out without much reward.Indians did drop catches which could have proved crucial.However,even with the fight that the tail gave,India managed to snatch victory within the last few minutes of the test match.Harbhajan Singh and Amit Mishra got the wickets required,Ishant also got 1,though he was unlucky.With this,India won by an innings and 58 runs and retained the title.I am definitely looking forward to watch the ODI Series,should be very competetive.
