8 runs short - WOW! South Africa fell eight runs short of a world-record run chase as the first Test against India in Johannesburg finished in a draw. South Africa finished the day on 7 for 450 after starting the day on 2 for 138 chasing 458 to win. A 205-run fifth-wicket partnership between Faf du Plessis and AB de Villiers set up the dramatic finish. De Villiers was bowled for 103, while Du Plessis was run out for 134 with 19 balls left. Dale Steyn and Vernon Philander batted out the final 3 overs with Steyn clubbing a 6 off the final ball. The highest successful fourth-innings run chase in Test history remains the 418 scored by West Indies to beat Australia in 2003. South Africa's total was the third-highest ever scored in a Test match fourth innings. #amazing #SAvIND #cricket
