The Proteas made all kinds of unwanted history in suffering a 3-0 Test series whitewash against India.Tuesday’s loss by an innings and 202 runs in Ranchi is the first time South Africa have suffered successive innings defeats (they lost by an innings and 137 runs in Pune last week) since 1935/36.More pertinently, the current squad will return home battered, riddled with doubts over their abilities in overseas conditions, as well as the competitiveness of local cricket in general.Skipper Faf du Plessis is under no illusion of the challenges South African cricket is facing.Here are the five biggest themes to emerge from his media conference following the Ranchi drubbing.He’s not going to quit international cricketHow I see my journey unfolding with this team is to help with the transition period. That’s something we spoke about before that wasn’t necessarily the case before. Graeme Smith was a successful captain for a very long time and then after that, it was like, ‘what now, who is going to captain the side, what’s going to happen?’ This period is to try and make that process a bit smoother, identifying the next leaders, identifying the next captains, working with them, and then when that time is right, that time will be right.Brexit can’t come quick enough to stem the Kolpak crisisIt’s sad for South African cricket not having the option of picking some of its best players. (Off-spinner) Simon Harmer has had an unbelievable season (for Essex). It would’ve been great to say ‘He’s done well overseas, let’s bring him with us on tour’. Maybe it will be better with Brexit. Players will probably still go play in England as overseas players, but at least you can play for your country still. (Under Kolpak conditions, a player isn’t allowed to play international cricket)At the moment, we don’t get the option of picking all of the best players. Even post-international cricketers like Hashim Amla and Morne Morkel won’t be playing domestically anymore, so you lose all of that experience. The young guys miss out on that. Playing alongside Hashim is arguably one of the greatest learning curves any rookie could experience. We need to bridge the gap. South African bowlers aren’t adapting to Indian conditionsWhen we play in the subcontinent, our style of bowling is not successful. You have to adapt your style to the style that is required. Obviously, someone like Dale Steyn was effective in the subcontinent because he has a similar skill set. He is a skiddy bowler off the pitch, hits the stumps, whereas if you are missing the stumps a lot or bouncing it over the stumps, it’s not as effective here.The Proteas desperately need to find mental toughnessIndia’s exceptional ruthlessness was one of the reasons why mentally we were so weak towards the end. Obviously, they did bat first every time, which made it easier but they still to put on 500, 500, 600 and the scoreboard pressure, the effect that it has on you mentally as a batting line-up, it takes a lot of energy and it takes a lot of toll. You just feel like there’s no opportunity or no moment in the game when you can hide. Your body is tired, your mind is tired and then you make mistakes.Our next journey is to try and make sure we get a lot stronger as a cricketing team mentally. As you can see, a tour like this reveals that there is a lot of mental scars that can happen and then obviously it’s difficult to come out of the hole. We played our best match in the first match and the consistent pressure that was on us made us weaker with every Test match that we played. It tells me we are not mentally strong as a team and that some work is required in that department.This rebuilding phase might take longer than expectedWhen you go through extreme hardships like this, in the hardships, you will still find guys that are up for Test cricket. You look for personalities within the team who you see in three, four, five or six years to come and then the process starts. In a perfect world you would start the process somewhere in the middle by changing one or two players and the period is shorter, but the position we find ourselves in now with a lot of experience out of the Test team, that process will probably take longer.For more sport your way, download The Citizen’s app for iOS and Android.

S. April 18 2017 REUTERS/Marvin Gentry Top News An upstart Democrat leads a special election in a conservative Georgia congressional district but incomplete returns show he’s barely clinging to the majority required to pull off a shocking upset in the Atlanta suburbs Jon Ossoff a 30-year-old former congressional staffer sought to parlay opposition to President Donald Trump into a victory that would rebuke the White House and embolden Democrats ahead of the 2018 midterm elections With early voting totals and about half of precincts counted Ossoff hovered right at the majority threshold required to win an 18-candidate primary outright in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District But tens of thousands of votes remained uncounted and Ossoff’s lead has been shrinking as more precincts roll in across a district that has been held by a Republican since Newt Gingrich was elected here in 1978 The trends point increasingly toward a June 20 runoff that would pit Ossoff against the top Republican vote-getter Former Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel is a distant second behind Ossoff but has a comfortable lead over other Republican candidates Republicans nationally and in Georgia acknowledged before polls opened that Ossoff would top the slate of Republicans Democrats and independents who appeared together on one primary ballot The question was whether Ossoff could win outright The winner will succeed Tom Price who resigned to become Trump’s health secretary Trump took to Twitter urging Republicans to cast ballots late Tuesday He even mocked Ossoff’s choice of residence outside the district “Just learned that Jon (at)Ossoff who is running for Congress in Georgia doesn’t even live in the district Republicans get out and vote” the president wrote The contest is testing both parties’ strategies for the upcoming national election cycle National attention already significant intensified after last week’s closer-than-expected GOP victory in a Kansas special House election Trump did not perform as well as other Republicans last November in the Georgia district an affluent well-educated swath filled with the kind of voters Democrats need if they hope to reclaim a House majority next year Republicans currently hold a 238-193 advantage in the chamber Ossoff would be a “disaster” in Congress Trump declared earlier Tuesday on social media a day after he blasted Ossoff as a “super liberal” Despite Trump’s Twitter barrage the White House insisted the race isn’t about the president “I wouldn’t use the word referendum” said spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders “I think he hopes to have a Republican elected” An investigative filmmaker Ossoff raised more than $83 million mostly from donors far from the northern suburbs of Atlanta That sum dwarfs what any Republican candidate has spent on the contest Ossoff has energized liberals and younger voters while also aiming for disaffected independents and moderate Republicans Cedrick Gulley a 25-year-old Georgia State University student from the Atlanta suburb of Sandy Springs said Tuesday that Democrats were “a little lazy” in November but now “there’s an emergence of people fighting” Ossoff has pledged to fight Trump when he “embarrasses” the country But he’s also said he would “work with anybody in Washington who respects your tax dollars” That’s a nod to the Republicans and independents he’d need to win whether Tuesday or in a runoff It still wasn’t enough for voters like Matt West a 45-year-old financial planner from Roswell “He lives outside the district he’s a Democrat and I just don’t believe that he’d stand up to (House Minority Leader) Nancy Pelosi if the district wanted him to” West said West said he voted for the Republican Handel an establishment favorite and has led the GOP field Republican groups ran a blitz of ads trying to tie Ossoff to Pelosi;
