In the wake of a 337-run defeat to India in the fourth and final Test in Delhi on Monday, there was sympathy on Twitter for how South Africa battled hard for what would have been a memorable draw.
Great fight by the men today…its been a long trip to india, time to come home. Travel safely… #Proteas

Heart goes out to South Africa though. Such magnificent defiance for a major part. They have been really popular visitors. — Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) December 7, 2015
