IND vs SA, ODI 1: Kallis leads South African victory over India

Sachin Tendulkar's valiant 99-run knock went in vain as a rock-solid Jacques Kallis, a known India nemesis, led South Africa to a four-wicket win in the first of three one-day internationals. Kallis's well-paced innings saw South Africa overhaul an India total of 242 for eight built around a third wicket stand of 158 between Sachin Tendulkar (99) and Rahul Dravid (74).
Tendulkar was left just 50 runs away from becoming the first batsman in history to score 15,000 one-day international runs - a landmark he could reach during the remaining games of this series. However, in sight of what would have been his 42nd hundred at this level, the 34-year-old Tendulkar was run out, going for an ill-judged second, by cover sweeper Morne van Wyk's throw to wicket-keeper Mark Boucher. Reported Earlier: South Africa captain Jacques Kallis won the toss and invited India to bat first in the cricket ODI at Belfast on Tuesday.
The weather is bright and sunny but the match will be played on a brand new pitch. Both teams have won their ties against hosts Ireland at the weekend but it will be India who need to call the shots as not every member of the playing XI is 100% fit owing to the virus that has bugged the team.
India skipper Rahul Dravid said fast bowlers Ajit Agarkar and S Sreesanth are unfit while keeper Mahendra Singh Dhoni too will not play as he is unwell. Kemp, Tshabalala and Steyn have been left out to bring in Hall, Nel and Langeveldt in the South African squad. Illness hit Indians have been forced to go in with two spinners and Powar and Zaheer are in.

IND vs SA, ODI 1: Illness strikes India on eve of South Africa opener

India have been struck down by illness on the eve of their opening one-day international against South Africa at Stormont here today and have had to call up reinforcements for their tour of the United Kingdom.
India captain Rahul Dravid told reporters at Stormont that wicket-keeper batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the first to fall ill, fast bowler Shathakumaran Sreesanth, medium-pacer Ajit Agarkar, off-spinner Ramesh Powar and left-arm quick Rudra Pratap Singh were all suffering from viral fever and flu. Dravid added he too was feeling unwell as were batsman Yuvraj Singh, and left-arm pace bowler Zaheer Khan.
"Quite a few boys in our team are suffering from viral fever and flu," and symptoms of that kind," Dravid explained. "Sreesanth, Agit Agarkar, Dhoni, RP Singh and Ramesh Powar have not come to practice today (Monday). "There are other guys like Yuvraj Singh, myself, Zaheer Khan and Robin (Singh, the fielding coach) who are feeling a bit down." Uncapped 28-year-old Baroda pace bowler Rakesh Patel, who has been playing club cricket in Liverpool, north-west England, has been called up to Indias one-day squad. "In consultation with the board and the chairman of selectors we have called up Rakesh Patel from one of the leagues here as back-up for the fast bowlers because with Sreesanth and Ajit unlkely to play tomorrow (Tuesday), Zaheer a bit doubftul, we were a bit light in that department," Dravid said.
