India vs South Africa Second Test at Kolkata

Kolkata Test, day five: India beat South Africa to level series, retain No.1 spot (SAF-IND: 1-1|2)

Harbhajan Singh took five wickets as India secured a dramatic innings and 58-run victory in the final minutes of the second Test against South Africa at Kolkata. The last wicket partnership between Hashim Amla (127*) and Morne Morkel (12) defied the Indian bowlers for more than 20 overs, but Harbhajan returned to snare Morkel with around 15 minutes remaining on the final day.Hashim Amla batted superbly to frustrate India with his second century of the match, but could not deny India a series tying victory. He took the man of the match and man of the series awards for centuries in each innings at Eden Gardens and 490 in total. He was dismissed only once in the series.
The win means India retain their place ahead of South Africa at the top of the Test world rankings.
Kolkota Test, day five: India 643/6 declared (Sehwag 165, Laxman 143*, Dhoni 132*, Tendulkar 106) beat South Africa 296 (Amla 114, Petersen 100, Zaheer 4-90, Harbhajan 3-64) and 289 (Amla 127*, Harbhajan 5-59, Mishra 3-78) by an innings and 58 runs

Kolkata Test, day four: Bad weather helps SA stay afloat in Kolkata

Only two-and-a-half hours of play was possible on day four, but India tightened their grip against South Africa, picking up three key wickets. South Africans were struggling at 115/3 when rain forced an early closure at the Eden Gardens. India are left with just one day to push for a series-levelling win, after Rain and Hashim Amla (49 not out) frustrated their bid on a day when only 34.1 overs could be bowled. The visitors are still 232 runs behind India, with only seven wickets in hand.
Kolkota Test, day four: South Africa 296 and 115/3 (Amla 49*, Mishra 2-15) trail India 643/6 decl. by 232 runs

Kolkata Test, day three: Dhoni, Laxman tons take India to 643/6

VVS Laxman (143*) and Mahendra Singh Dhoni (132*) both added unbeaten centuries to give India a huge 347-run first-innings lead in the second Test against South Africa. It was Laxman's 15th and Dhoni's fourth Test centuries. Nightwatchman Amit Mishra racked up 28 runs at the beginning of the day before losing his wicket. It was the only wicket to fall on day three as India resumed on 5 for 342 and went on to declare their first innings closed at 6 for 643. It was only the second occasion that four Indian batsmen have scored centuries in a single Test innings. The massive seventh-wicket partnership resulted in an unbroken stand of 259 runs, a new Indian record for the seventh wicket. The total is India's highest against South Africa, beating the 627 they scored at Chennai in 2007-08.South Africa added six runs without loss before bad light ended play.
Kolkota Test, day three: South Africa 296 and 6/0 trail India 643/6 decl. (Sehwag 165, Tendulkar 106, Laxman 143*, Dhoni 132*) by 341 runs

Kolkata Test, day two: South Africa strike after Sehwag, Tendulkar tons

A double century partnership for the third wicket between Virender Sehwag (165) and Sachin Tendulkar (106), both of whom scored their second centuries of the series, allowed India to establish a 46 run lead over South Africa on the second day of the second Test with 5 wickets left. The opening pair of Gautam Gambhir and Virender Sehwag plundered 73 runs off 9.2 overs - at a rate close to 8 runs per over - before Sehwag ran Gambhir out with a call for a non-existent second run. After Murali Vijay came and left putting only 7 on the board, Tendulkar joined Sehwag. While Sehwag (165 off 174 balls, with 23 fours and two sixes) scored his 19th century, Tendulkar completed his 47th century and his fourth in successive Test matches. South Africa were bowled out for 296 in the morning, adding 30 runs to their overnight score of 266/9. After two sessions that completely belonged to India, they came back into the match with a 3-wicket haul after tea. After Sehwag fell to Duminy in his second ball, Tendulkar and S Badrinath followed in quick succession within 4 overs. At stumps, India were 342/5, with VVS Laxman batting on 9 and night watchman Amit Mishra for company.
Kolkota Test, day two: India 342/5 (Sehwag 165, Tendulkar 106) lead South Africa 296 (Amla 114, Petersen 100, Zaheer 4-90) by 46 runs

Kolkata Test, day one: India on top after dramatic South Africa collapse

South Africa, who were 218 for one in 58 overs with the help of quick centuries from Amla (114) and debutant Alviro Petersen (100), crashed to 266 for nine as Zaheer and Harbhajan picked up three wickets apiece as they ripped through the visitor's middle order.After losing the toss India who were asked to field opened with the wicket of Graeme Smith, only to see the second wicket duo of Petersen and Amla adding 209. The collapse however began with Petersen edging Zaheer to wicketkeeper Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Amla left shortly after the tea interval as he mistimed a pull off Zahir and giving Dhoni his second catch of the day. Harbhajan then destroyed South Africa's fragile middle order with a three-wicket burst.India: Sehwag, Gambhir, Vijay, Tendulkar, Laxman, Badrinath, Dhoni (C/W), Harbhajan, Zaheer, Mishra, I Sharma
South Africa: Gm Smith (Captain), Prince, Amla, Kallis, de Villiers (Wicket Keeper), Duminy, Petersen, Steyn, Parnell, M Morkel, P Harris
Kolkota Test, day one: South Africa 266 for 9 (Amla 114, Petersen 100, Harbhajan 3-60, Zaheer 3-77) v India

Kolkata Test: Sreesanth returns for Eden Test

Kerala pacer S Sreesanth is likely to play in the second Test match as the Indian selectors dropped the back-up seamers Sudeep Tyagi and Abhimanyu and brought him back into the side. Dinesh Karthik - a batsman who can keep - and Suresh Raina - a middle-order batsman - were also named in the 15 member Indian squad. VVS Laxman, who missed the first Test due to injury, was also retained. Wriddhiman Saha was dropped inspite of him playing a fighting knock of 36 from 101 balls where he frustrated the South Africans. A 1-0 or 2-0 victory for South Africa will give them the No. 1 world ranking. India can keep that poistion if they win the Test and tie the series. India have not lost at the Eden Gardens in the last five Tests.India squad: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (captain, wkt), Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Murali Vijay, Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman, Subramaniam Badrinath, Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan, Amit Mishra, Ishant Sharma, Sreesanth, Pragyan Ojha, Dinesh Karthik (Wicket Keeper), Suresh Raina.
