After a long and hard battle in the Test series, Team India finally tasted success after winning the 3rd Test of the three-match series in Johannesburg. Despite losing the series 2-1, India still remain unbeaten at New Wanderers and still top the Test rankings. 

The visitors decided to let off some cool as they had a day out in Durban. Surprisingly, coach Ravi Shastri and former skipper MS Dhoni joined the celebratory occasion as well. All-rounder Kedhar Jadhav was also seen along with the Men in Blue. 

The coach uploaded a post on Twitter with the caption 'As easy as a Sunday morning. Cheers'.

Shastri termed the win at Johannesburg as one of the best as the team fought and played like a No.1 ranked Test side on such conditions which was a challenge. 

“It’s right up there with the best. Look at the conditions, the wicket, and what we were up against. Many laughed at us when we elected to bat on a green pitch. But we had our reasons. Then the way we fought. We played like the No. 1 team in the world.”

All-rounder Hardik Pandya uploaded a picture with the Indian players as well.

Jasprit Bumrah had as well uploaded an image. The seamer started off his Test career in style as the right-arm medium bowler collected 14 wickets in the 3 Test matches he has played.

The Virat Kohli led Team India will now shift their focus on to the limited overs format as they face South Africa in six One Day Internationals, with the first match in Kingsmead, Durban on February 1. The No.2 ODI side India, will take on the top team as the pressure boils down on to the hosts as the Men in Blue aim to win the limited-overs format series.
