India were dismissed for 76 in the shortest ever innings on the subcontinent. It took just 20 overs to complete the rot with Steyn picking up 5/23. Ntini grabbed 3/18 and Morkel claimed 2 wickets. In under 15 overs SA were in the lead. Currently they are 147 runs in the lead with 4 wickets down. Things are not going India’s way and it will take a miracle for them to come back in this match.
Virender Sehwag smashes South Africa all over the park scoring 257 runs in the day and completing the fastest ever 300 in just 278 balls. Absolutely incredible to watch and he still has tomorrow to take his score past 400!!!
South Africa posted their higest ever score in India, posting 540 in the first innings. India have shown there is plenty to play for as India have fought back and are currently 82 without loss. Their run rate has been impressive and is currently just under 4 to the over.
Its game on in a few hours time and plenty to play for!
