Defeat was inevitable after first innings deficit: Dhoni

Centurion: India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni today said the first innings deficit was too much to handle and a defeat was inevitable after the visitors conceded a massive 484-run lead to South Africa in the first cricket Test here.

“The deficit was too much to handle, and South Africa got too many runs. It was a good show by the batsmen in the second innings,” Dhoni said after India were dismissed for 459 in their second innings to hand South Africa an innings and 25-run victory.

“After they won the toss it was a job half done, but they had to bowl at the right areas and they did that. Their batsmen also batted really well,” he added.
