Cape Town - The recently concluded South Africa versus India three-Test series has bowled its way into cricket's record books.
It was the first occasion in Test history - that's 2 294 Tests stretching back nearly 141 years to 1877 - where all 40 possible wickets fell in each Test of a series comprising three or more matches.
No doubting the fact the state of the Centurion and Wanderers wickets, which both came in for severe criticism, helped make history.
The Centurion pitch was likened to a typical subcontinent wicket, while the Wanderers track threatened at one stage to make unwanted history of its own as the players were led from the field early on Day 3 due to the dangerous conditions.
Proteas skipper Faf du Plessis was critical in his assessment of the wickets prepared, with the Wanderers in particular facing an uncertain future as a venue for upcoming matches as the ICC no doubt mulls a suitable punishment.
For the record, the record number of wickets to fall in a four-Test series is 157, while in a five-Test series the record stands at 197.
