South Africa chased down 240 runs against India in the 2nd Test match and defeated India for the first time on The Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg. Dean Elgar's 96* helped South Africa to win the Test convincingly by 7 wickets and level the ongoing series 1-1. On Day-4, Pujara and Rahane's 111 run partnership helped India recover but collapse in batting order meant India couldn't set a big target. Vihari played a valuable knock of 40* and Thakur scored a handy 28 in the 3rd innings of the match but those two innings were completely over shadowed by Elgar and van der Dussen's partnership.
