Knowledge is the fragrance of life

Indian cricketers face a flip flop

Fate intervened in the form of a rain on the second day of the second cricket Test match in Durban against South Africa. Earlier play had been stopped due to bad light on the first day itself when the Indian batsmen were cruising along.

The rain stop changed the fortunes of the game with the Indian batsmen playing a heavy price as Dale Steyn took full advantage of the nature endowed conditions. The ball that eclipsed the wicket of Rohit Sharma can be best labeled unplayable.

The entire Indian innings was rocked by Steyn deliveries in such a way that it never recovered from the blows. Vijay also became his victim and missed his century by a whisker of three runs. Pujara, Kohli and Rahane contributed to the Indian total of 334 that is neither sufficient nor competitive. All in all it will make for a very interesting third day in Kingsmead between India and South Africa with cricket coming out tops.
