Looks like SA will save the test (all credits to Amla), win the series and take away the No.1 positioin from india
Indian bowling is not that effective and with 2 or 3 catches dropped?

Lights holding pretty well, they should get the remaining 9 overs. India is giving boundaries to Morkel so that he stays on strike..lol

A proverb reversed -

SA are giving India the medicine, they themselves tasted against England (10th wicket partnership to save the test). Hats off to Amla; he surely deserves to save the test.

News: Even if the remaining 6 overs are bowled, the play will carry on till 1639 hrs, light permitting.

perfect timing for the last wicket! I just had a nice afternoon nap and woke up just in time to see the last one!

Lol. Haha

Hats off to the players, great job, keep it up.

The match was verry entertaining. For the first time ever, I kept on checking scores for a Test match.

Reminds me of the joke about the Indian version of JIT.......... S.H.I.T (SomeHow in Time)

Well done India, and Harbhajan is pakka in the team for another 2 years !

I thought we were cruising comfortably at one time...6 SA wickets down and 10 runs required per over.

Good fight back by the South Africans and Thanks India for giving an edge of the seat thriller !

I would like to repeat my earlier post. Why do we have to leave everything to the last minute?? That too, getting belted by tailenders.

For one i felt we let go off the match. Thanks to lady luck India Won. but we need few sheer fast bowlers who can rip off the stumps by bowling yorkers to tailenders. The breed of Bret Lee, Shane Bond, Dale Styn, Dominic Cork, Allan Donald.
