A gutsy Dean Elgar was happy to shun elegance for efficacy as he steered South Africa to a creditable seven-wicket series-levelling victory in the second Test against India. The defeat was India’s first at the Bull Ring in 30 years. Chasing a target of 240, skipper Elgar carried his bat through with an unbeaten 96 to set up an exciting final Test at the Newlands in Cape Town starting January 11.
