"We have whitewashed India!That was nail bitting! Cricket at its best Congratulations to the Proteas!"


"Great performance overall from the boys, special mention to our captain Bavuma, brilliant captaincy, calm and in control"


"There seems to be a turning point. Team, captain and coach starting to understand each other. Incredible fight back after losing their way slightly. The only distraction continues to be the over-politicised CSA."


"Dominant performance and shutting down the haters, they were saying easy 3-0 for India but this South Africa team I believe have overcome rebuilding stage and will be brilliant as before."


"Please cancel your tour to India this June. After losing in SA, we have given you huge hope of winning, only to butcher you in India later coming this June... KL Rahul is so brutal"
