Centuries from Dean Elgar and Quinton de Kock proved to be a minor blip as India coasted home on the final day of the Test. Rohit Sharma hit twin centuries in his first match as Test opener while Mayank Agarwal converted his maiden century into a double hundred. Ravichandran Ashwin picked up his 27th 5-wicket haul while also becoming the joint-fastest bowler to claim 350 Test scalps.
