Netizens on the internet thanked him for saving India’s innings. Some called him the greatest pacer from India after his fifer. One said they didn’t give him the credit he deserves, adding that he was the King of bowling. One called him a legend of the game.

Check out their reactions: 

India have been given the target of 79. Despite the low score, it looks like a tough target due to the dangerous pitch. Yashasvi Jaiswal gave a good start, scoring 28 off 23 with 6 boundaries. He was dismissed by Nadre Burger after he tried to pull him for a six, but found Stubbs on the boundary instead. Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill are in the middle, chasing down the score, before Gill got bowled by Kagiso Rabada due to low bounce.
