India inflict innings defeat on South Africa in 3rd test

India took just nine minutes to wrap up proceedings on day four of the third test against South Africa and completed a first-ever 3-0 series whitewash with an innings and 202-run victory on Tuesday.

Resuming at 132-8 in its second innings, the Proteas added one run off 10 balls before debutant Shahbaz Nadeem took the final two wickets off consecutive deliveries.

Nadeem (2-18) had concussion substitute batsman Theunis de Bruyn (30) caught behind, and next ball caught Lungi Ngidi in a bizarre fashion as the ball ricocheted off the non-striker Anrich Nortje.
