SA just short in record run chase
Faf du Plessis and A.B. de Villiers played what captain Graeme Smith described as “two of the greatest Test innings in recent times” as South Africa and India fought out an epic draw in the first Test at the Wanderers Stadium on Sunday. Set a world record victory target of 458, South Africa finished eight runs short on 450 for seven after a day of tension and drama. Du Plessis (134) and de Villiers (103) shared a fifth wicket partnership of 205 — a world record for a fifth wicket stand in the fourth innings of a Test match.
