What must Ashwin and Jadeja be thinking right now?
For so long India’s go-to bowling pair, Ashwin and Jadeja must be wondering if they will ever play for India in the limited overs setup again, as they have been usurped by Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav.
India’s latest spin duo were on fire in the second ODI at Centurion, as the pair picked up eight wickets between them. Chahal picked up his maiden five-wicket haul, as the hosts were bundled out for a paltry 118.
Kuldeep was also brilliant with the ball, as he was unlucky to pick up just three wickets today. Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar picked up a wicket each, as the bowlers put India in a superb position to go 2-0 up in the series.
Here are the Twitter reactions as South Africa capitulates for just 118!
Wow! Our wrist spinners running riot in South Africa, who would have thought ! Absolutely brilliant from Chahal and Kuldeep #SAvsIND

Chahal & Kuldeep Yadav may have taken 8 Wickets between them but half the wickets should be added to Dhoni' s profile 😁#SAvIND

Yuzvendra Chahal, remember the name. Outstanding spell of leg-spin bowling. Kuldeep and Chahal gradually becoming the best bowling partnership in World Cricket. #SAvsIND

Thing which stood out for India in first innings :
– Yuzvendra Chahal's clever wrist spin.
– Kuldeep Yadav's Chinaman
