KL Rahul’s patient 123 in the first innings of the first Test here had a huge impact on how the contest at Centurion progressed and eventually ended in an Indian triumph. The stellar all-round performance helped defeat South Africa by 113 runs on the final day of the first Test as the tourists took a 1-0 lead in the three-match series. Rahul said he has been enjoying the process of grafting runs in Test cricket while saying it has been a special year for India in the whites.
