India vs South Africa Second ODI at Kingsmead

Second ODI @ Kingsmead : South Africa win after skittling India for 91

Jacques Kallis hit a commanding century and then took three wickets as South Africa beat India by 157 runs in the second one-day international in Durban.
Sachin Tendulkar (35) top-scored for India in a dire batting display.
Earlier South Africa made 248/8 in 50 overs after winning the toss and electing to bat first. Kallis made 119 in 160 balls, while Zaheer Khan, Patel and Agarkar took two wickets each for India. Reported Earlier: Much like the first one-day international, the second match between India and South Africa here Wednesday is most likely to be affected by thundershowers as per the forecast of the meteorological department.
After intermittent rains forced the abandonment of the first match in Johannesburg Sunday without a ball being bowled, the second match in Kingsmead here is set to follow the same path. It rained almost the whole night Monday, and the metrological department forecasts thundershowers, raising a big question mark over the match being played at all. The weather has not been kind to cricket matches at Kingsmead in recent times. Four of the seven previous one-day internationals here have been abandoned because of rains. India Team (from): Rahul Dravid (Captain), Virender Sehwag, Sachin Tendulkar, Wasim Jaffer, Mohammad Kaif, Suresh Raina, Dinesh Mongia, Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Dinesh Karthik (wicket-keepers), Irfan Pathan, Zaheer Khan, Anil Kumble, S. Sreesanth, Harbhajan Singh, Munaf Patel and Ajit Agarkar
South Africa Team (from): Graeme Smith (Captain), Jacques Kallis, Loots Bosman, Mark Boucher (wicket-keeper), A.B. de Villiers, Boeta Dippenaar, Herschelle Gibbs, Andrew Hall, Justin Kemp, Charl Langeveldt, Andre Nel, Makhaya Ntini, Shaun Pollock and Robin Peterson

Second ODI @ Kingsmead : Second ODI could also rain out

Charl Langeveldt does not even want to think about the possibility that the second one-day cricket match of the series between South Africa and India may be washed out on Wednesday.
Langeveldt would have played in Robin Peterson's place in the first ODI at the Wanderers on Sunday when overcast conditions favoured the seamers. However, heavy rain resulted in the match being abandoned without a ball being bowled. Thunder showers have also been predicted for Durban on Wednesday evening. This means the Proteas are likely to do without a spinner, which will give Langeveldt another chance.

India vs South Africa Third ODI : Venue


Sahara Stadium Kingsmead is a Cricket ground in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. Its current stated capacity is 25000, although grass terracing makes up part of the viewing area. The 'End names' are the Umgeni End (north) and the Old Fort Road End (south). It is the home ground of the KwaZulu-Natal Dolphins.
It has been renowned as a seamers wicket, and there is also a famous myth regarding how the tide affects batting conditions, as the ground is quite close to the beach. Many batting collapses in matches in the past have been blamed on changes in the tide, but nobody has been able to prove this theory.
