‘An attack that can pick 20 wickets anywhere in the world’: Tendulkar, Ganguly hail Team India’s heroics at Centurion


Virat Kohli’s unit scripted history on Thursday as he led India to their maiden Test win at Centurion. As India chase for their first-ever Test series win on South African soil, Kohli and co kicked-off their campaign on a strong note and went to secure a resounding 113 runs win in the opening encounter.

Moments after India’s win, Kohli’s unit was showered with praises from the game’s legend as Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and other ex-India cricketers took to Twitter to laud the team’s achievement.

Here are a few reactions:

The contest at Centurion saw KL Rahul flourishing with the bat yet again in an overseas Test, as he scored a ton to lay the perfect foundation for the bowlers to build on. Meanwhile with the ball it was Mohammed Shami, who completed a five-wicket haul and also joined the 200 Test wickets club.
