Shantha Rangaswamy revealed that her former side's 1976-77 Test series Vs new Zealand should be given "official status".
A formidable Indian team ticked all boxes with ease as they deservingly completed a 3-0 rout of an out of sorts South Africa with a comprehensive innings and 202 runs victory in the third and final Test at Ranchi, on Tuesday.
Debutant Shahbaz Nadeem (2/18 in 6 overs) wrapped it up in the second over of the day as South Africa were all-out for 133 in their second innings, 30 runs short of their dismal first innings score of 162.
Earlier in the previous day, South Africa couldn't handle the pace of Mohammed Shami and Umesh Yadav.
This is India's sixth clean sweep at home in a three-Test series and India didn't put a foot wrong during the three-match series winning the first Test by 203 runs and the second one by an innings and 137 runs.
If Rohit Sharma's coming of age in his new role as an opener with 529 runs, turned out to be a masterstroke in home conditions, Mayank Agarwal also consolidated his place in the side with a double century and a ton, easing India's long time opening woes. Rohit Sharma also got the man of the series award.
Umesh Yadav also once again hit the limelight with his intense pace bowling Vs the Proteas.
