Former South Africa spinner Imran Tahir believes that the Indian cricket team's overconfidence was the biggest reason to have lost both the Test and ODI series against Proteas.

South Africa have already won the series as they beat India in the first two ODIs of the three-match series. The Proteas also won the three-match Test series by 2-1.

"I don't judge any team but India is a very good side and this South African team is just growing up and India misjudged them and they were overconfidence that they can defeat this team easily and this is the main reason for Indian side defeat," Imran Tahir told ANI after the match against Asia Lions.

The spinner also said that the hosts took good advantage of their home conditions. He felt the series win was very special as it came against India.

"India dominating world cricket in Test and one day both from last 4 to 5 years but this Proteas team played very well and they took good advantage of their home conditions and turned it into victory," said the spinner.
