Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav have continued their great run in South Africa as well. At Centurion, Chahal and Yadav ran through the Proteas batting line-up claiming eight wickets between them.

Speaking to birthday boy Bhuvneshwar Kumar on on Monday, the spin twins said they are enjoying bowling in South Africa.

"Obviously, there was a lot of preparation, we knew that the wickets will be fast here and that would be helpful for the spinners. When we play in India, the ball comes slower off the wicket and batsmen get the time to play it.

"Both Chahal and I have relished the bounce on South African wickets and that has been advantageous because batsmen don't have that much time to get on the backfoot. I am really enjoying bowling here, I feel I am enjoying bowling here even more than India,” said Yadav.

Chahal added: "I had come here with India A, so I was aware about the pitch conditions here. Like Kuldeep said, the ball is coming fast off the wicket. There is good bounce here so don't have to think too much and just bowl like the way we use to."

India defeated South Africa by nine wickets after cleaning them up for 118.
