India lost two early wickets after South Africa set them a target of 354 to win on the fourth day of the second Test at Kingsmead in Durban.Needing a win to square the three-match series, South Africa batted aggressively despite losing six wickets for 44 runs at one stage before lunch. Shaun Pollock made a stroke-filled 63 not out to enable South Africa to declare their second innings at 265 for eight.
Shanthakumuran Sreesanth, India's exciting young fast bowler, took three of the wickets as South Africa collapsed from 99 for no wicket to 143 for six. Sreesanth finished with four for 79, taking his tally for the series to 16. Forecast for the last day suggests rain and scattered thunderstorms by afternoon.

IND SA Second Test, Day one: Prince survives India onslaught

Ashwell Prince hit an unbeaten 98 as South Africa recovered to 257-8 on day one of the second Test.
South Africa were stumbling at 28 for three when Prince came to the crease and he kept the Indian attack at bay for four-and-a-half hours, finishing the day unbeaten on 98 when play was halted 17 overs early due to bad light. Prince was well supported by Herschelle Gibbs (63) and Mark Boucher (53), sharing in stands of 93 with Gibbs and 100 with Boucher. The Indian opening bowlers Zaheer Khan (two for 61) and Shanthakumaran Sreesanth (three for 74) shared the first five wickets, before off-spinner Anil Kumble chipped in with two for 48. Tendulkar gave Prince a life when the batsman was on 41, dropping a low edge at slip off the bowling of VRV Sing. The Indian star did not return after tea and was taken to hospital for x-rays on an injured finger. Gibbs made a pair in the first Test defeat but hit 13 fours in his 88-ball innings before he top-edged a pull off Sreesanth to wicketkeeper Mahendra Singh Doni. India captain Rahul Dravid was more than satisfied with his side's efforts. "It was a very good day," he said. "It was very hot out there and the boys showed a lot of character.
Second Test, Durban, day one (close): South Africa 257-8 v India

India may play Munaf Patel, Gautam Gambhir

Pace bowler Munaf Patel is set to win back his place in the India team for the second Test against South Africa in Durban.
Patel missed the last three one-day internationals and the first Test in Johannesburg after injuring his ankle in the second one-dayer in Durban on November 23. He bowled in a match for the first time since hurting his ankle in a drawn two-day practice game against a KwaZulu-Natal Invitation XI in Durban on Saturday, taking two for 25 from eight overs. India will also consider selecting Gautam Gambhir to strengthen their top order. Gambhir was not in the team who won the first Test by 123 runs in Johannesburg last Monday, India's first Test win in South Africa. But after top-scoring with 79 in the practice match, Gambhir seems an appropriate replacement for the struggling Wasim Jaffer.
South Africa Team (from) : Graeme Smith (Captain), Paul Adams, Hashim Amla, Mark Boucher, AB de Villiers, Herschelle Gibbs, Andrew Hall, Paul Harris, Jacques Kallis, Morne Morkel, Andre Nel, Makhaya Ntini, Shaun Pollock, Ashwell Prince, Dale Steyn.
India Team (from) : Rahul Dravid (Captain), Mahendra Dhoni, Gautam Gambhir, Sourav Ganguly, Harbhajan Singh, Wasim Jaffer, Dinesh Karthik, Zaheer Khan, Anil Kumble, VVS Laxman, Munaf Patel, Irfan Pathan, Virender Sehwag, Vikram Singh, Shanta Sreesanth, Sachin Tendulkar.

India vs South Africa Second Test Match

The Venue

Kingsmead

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.
