Cricket: Ind. v. SA - 2nd Test - 5th Day - India needs 117 to win

Category: Misc. Cricket

India need a 117 runs to win the 2nd test and the series versus South Africa.

South Africa were bowled out for 222 runs in their 2nd innings on the 5th and final day of the 2nd test match being played at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.

Harbhajan Singh took seven wickets, including the important wicket of last innings centurion Jacques Kallis who was caught and bowled by Harbhajan for 55 runs. Anil Kumble chipped in with three wickets, and ended the stubborn last wicket partnership between De Bruyn and Ntini, by having Ntini caught in the first slip by Dravid, and in the process equalled Kapil Dev's record of 434 Test Wickets. Well bowled Harbhajan. Well bowled Anil Kumble and congratulations on equalling Kapil Dev's record of 434 test match wickets.

India need 117 runs to win with almost 60 overs remaining. It will be a cakewalk for us. But then, in cricket, it's not over, until it's over! So let's wait and watch.
