Don't think you can call 1-1 in SA against India a choke. The first match, SA annihilated us, agreed. But it was not like their lack of mental strength cost them the series. India just bowled superbly in the second game and Laxman played the Innings of the year to win the match.
The third game was pretty evenly matched, IMO. If anything It was a bit of a 'choke' for Dhoni to let SA off and not attack full-on when SA had Kallis and Boucher in before 100 in the third Innings. Sure, Smith could've declared 10 overs early on the fourth day but don't think even that was an obvious error tbh.
The aforementioned two facing off for 1-1 in India was even less of a choke. SA murdered India in the first test and India returned the favour in the second. Both games were won by an Innings. While one might say SA were a couple of overs away from drawing and winning in India, It's easy to forget that an entire day was rained off and the game competitively, had no business reaching the end of the fifth day.
Isnít it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too?
