Harbhajan Singh also wished the Kohli-led team and tweeted: “3-0 as predicted congratulations @BCCI, team india.. way to good for South Africa.. they have lots of work to do to get their team to that level. #INDvsSA (sic).”

India now have 240 points in the ongoing World Test Championships after winning all the five matches they have played so far since the inception of WTC and are currently placed at the top of the table.

They are now scheduled to play Bangladesh in the two-Test series beginning November 14.
