According to host captain Dean Elgar- India’s displeasure with the DRS system worked in South Africa’s favour.
The Survived in Representation :-

Elgar sent the determination up and ball-tracking showed that the ball must have gone over the stumps. India vociferously questioned the conclusion on the field and also said that the host broadcasters had sided with the home team.
But after just nine overs, Elgar was dismissed at the end of the game. By that stage, Elgar and Rassie van der Dussen had added 41 runs at a scoring rate of 4.5 and brought the objective down to 111 on the final day.
“It was a little bit of Test match cricket, which gave us a little bit of time to score more free and get away with aim. It played so well in our hands that for a while, they forgot about the game and they We’re channeling a little more of the emotional side of the gift of Test cricket. I’m so glad it happened.”
The 2018 Series Between Two Teams :-
At the time of South Africa’s chase, India hooked them up with interpretations ranging from references to the 2018 series between the two teams – “Remember who Jo’burg wanted to call off the Test” was heard on the stump mic.
South Africa has had their fair share to say in the field and Elgar has backed that he does not shy away from using his words, although he only spoke in the context of his team.
In addition to the second Test, Elgar revealed how he interacted with Kagiso Rabada, who fired him for the remainder of the series. He has since shared that he has equal chats with all members of his squad, as he strives to get the best out of them, but has emphasized that the chats are based on an ethos of care.
“You have to have mutual respect with each and every player and it’s a two-way street. It helps you carry on the conversations that have happened in the last few weeks,” he said.
The players are expected to understand that I am not there to manipulate them. I am not one to try to do injustice to his career as I want him to work at a prestigious level at this stage of Test cricket.
If you want to be the best, you’re expected to work at the level that we’ve had over the past few weeks, but you’re expected to be pretty clear around that.
His Mantra is to Put Group Relatives First :-
Exactly what all those discussions are about, we’ll never be knowing. Because Elgar said that he’s not going to reveal “everything because what happens in the team stays in the team”. But that’s unavoidably his mantra. The group relative has to be put first.
“We all want to change things in our own way but the team way is the only way forward. It sounds a bit harsh but if you want to be the best, you have to have that skill, which is a unique skill.
“I have very thick skin when it comes to on-field disciplines. And what matters is that the team is given massive superiority. Now, having a lot of feelings, I have qualified for that kind of person. which I lacked.
I would like to think that this is something. I am still going to work on and grow as a human being. The pressure situation is tough. Mostly when you do not have a bat in your hand.
