After the recent retirement of wicket-keeper and short-format opener, Quinton de Kock, this has been the second player to hang up his boots. However, Chris Morris has done it from all formats of the game, not just one.

The Story So Far Of The Final Test Match Between South Africa And India

Team India scored 223 in the first innings of the third and final Test between them and South Africa. The series is currently tied at 1-1 and this can be the winner. To add to that, skipper Virat Kohli returned to form with a 79-run knock. He was the top scorer for the visiting team and this would have inspired the rest of them.

Further, the home side lost a wicket before the end of day 1’s play. Skipper Dean Elgar lost his wicket on 3, as pacer Jasprit Bumrah got his scalp. In this game, the visitors have the advantage now and there is still life in this pitch that can be exploited by both sides.
