India vs South Africa First Test at Nagpur

Nagpur Test, day four: South Africa steamrolls India in Nagpur (SAF-IND: 1-0|2)

The Proteas romped to a crushing victory over India by an innings and six runs after another superb display by pace bowler Dale Steyn who achieved match figures of 10-108. Sachin Tendulkar earlier hit his 46th Test century, but proved once again he doesn't have the heart to play a second innings like Laxman, Dravid or Gambhir when it matters. It was India's third innings loss at home in 25 years, all of those coming against South Africa. The South Africans now need to just draw the second and final Test beginning in Kolkata on February 14 to reclaim their top ranking from India.Mahendra Singh Dhoni, a vocal advocate of youth over experience ever since he started leading India, finally saw his wishes come through before the Nagpur test. For someone who has always tried to get rid of the seniors in the team except Sachin, it might have been a dream come true to see a playing XI that didn't feature Dravid and Laxman. The team was stacked with youngsters ("It is easy to motivate youngsters," Dhoni after WT20 2007 victory). And the result? Dhoni's first loss as Indian captain.
Nagpur Test, day four: South Africa 558/6 declared (J Kallis 173, H Amla 253 not out, AB de Villiers 53) beat India 233 (V Sehwag 109, S Badrinath 56, D Steyn 7-51) and 319 (S Tendulkar 100) by an innings and six runs

Nagpur Test, day three: India 66/2 after following-on, trail by 259 runs

South Africa were eyeing victory after Dale Steyn picked a career-best 7-51 in the Indian first innings, and then dismissed Virender Sehwag, the only batsman who troubled them on day three. In the first innings Sehwag scored 109 runs off 139 balls - his 18th Test ton - while debutant Badrinath scored 56 from the same number of balls. Dale Steyn ripped apart India's fragile middle order, with a career-best haul of seven for 51 as the hosts were bundled out for 233 in the first innings. India are struggling at 66 for two in their second innings at close of play, after losing both openers. Murali Vijay and Tendulkar are at the crease, with a 38 run partnership for the third wicket.

Nagpur Test, day two: Hashim Amla hits double ton

An unbeaten 253 from Hashim Amla - his first double century - helped South Africa to compile 558/6 declared on day two of the first Test against India at Nagpur. Amla shared in a 108-run fourth wicket stand with AB de Villiers (53) after taking his overnight partnership with Jacques Kallis (173) to 340.India were 25 without loss in reply at the close with Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir not out on nine and 12 respectively.
Nagpur Test, day two: India 25/0 trail South Africa 558/6 declared (Amla 253*, Kallis 173, de Villiers 53) by 533 runs

Nagpur Test, day one: Kallis, Amla punish India

After Zaheer Khan (2-67) sent back openers Ashwell Prince and Graeme Smith in a fiery opening spell, Jacques Kallis and Hashim Amla slammed unbeaten centuries to help South Africa seize the momentum against India in Nagpur. Kallis scored 159 (off 290 balls, 13x4s, 2x6s) and Amla made 115 (off 225 balls, 11x4s) as the Proteas recovered from a 6/2 to reach 291/2 at stumps on the opening day of the first Test.While Amla struck his eighth Test century, Kallis completed his 34th Test ton. He equalled legends Sunil Gavaskar and Brian Lara, and is now behind only Ricky Ponting (39) and Sachin Tendulkar (45). India team: V Sehwag, G Gambhir, M Vijay, SR Tendulkar, S Badrinath, MS Dhoni (Captain, Wicketkeeper), WP Saha, Harbhajan Singh, Z Khan, A Mishra, I Sharma.
Nagpur Test, day one: South Africa 291/2 (Kallis 159*, Amla 115*, Zaheer 2-67) vs India

Nagpur Test: Battle for No. 1 begins

Under a cloudy sky, India will begin their 2-test series against South Africa in Nagpur today, needing only to draw the series to pick up the $175,000 bonus from ICC as the world's numero uno Test team. As for the Proteas, they must win the series at least 1-0, to regain their top ranking they held from December 2008 after dethroning the then champions Australia. Graeme Smith and Gautam Gambhir will battle it out for the No. 1 spot for Test batsmen.India in all probability will feature a new look middle order batting line up, with VVS Laxman still uncertain to play. From where things stand, S Badrinath and Rohit Sharma are set to debut today in the middle order. The last time a middle order batsman made his debut in Team India was Yuvraj Singh in 2003. Inexperienced M Vijay will also be in the final playing XI.
