The first test match between India and South Africa held between 18th to 22/12/2013 kicked off with India winning the toss and electing to bat first.  At the end of the day it looked like a decent decision considering their batsmen were somewhat able to overcome the odds.  To know about what happened during the course of the match, Read on for the complete Results along with a review and statistical Highlights.

Statistical Highlights

CricketLooking at the batting of  both the teams in first innings, there is not much to talk about apart from Virat Kohli's brilliant century and Graeme Smith's grinding 68.  Both the teams were bundled out for less than 300.  As far as their bowling was concerned, Vernon Philander, Zaheer Khan and Ishant Sharma were the pick of the bowlers.

The second innings batting of both the teams was superb. As a result of brilliant centuries by Pujara and Kohli, South Africa had to score 458 to win the match which looked improbable.  Brilliant Centuries by AB De Villiers and Faf Du Plessis almost got them within striking distance of an improbable victory but towards the end they fell short by 8 runs.  India's bowling in the second innings was not as impressive as the first one but they managed to fight out a draw towards the end.

Take a look at the scorecard of the match below.
