Indians apne ghar main hi sher hote hain
India in all sorts of trouble on the first day of the First Test Match between India and South Africa. The day was shortened by a session and a half because of some heavy rain.
The excellent drainage system however made sure play was possible.
India were put in to bat by Greame Smith in gloomy conditions. The decision paid almost straightaway. India were in trouble right from the start and none of their batsmen were able to stamp their authority in the bouncy track.
Tendulkar showed signs of resistance but he too was eventually dismissed for 36.
At the end of the day India were reduced to 136/9 with MS Dhoni unbeaten at 33 and debutant Unadkat not out at 1. Morne Morkel took 4 wickets while Dale Steyn bagged 3 Indian wickets. Jaques Kallis also chipped in with one wicket towards the end of play.
MS Dhoni 33*
M Morkel 4-20
D Steyn 3-34
JR Kallis 1-20

South Africa had a near-perfect day in Centurion to move into a position of such dominance that after just 125.4 overs of play in the Test, India will be as interested in the weather forecast as the scorecard as they attempt to save the match. On a sunny second day at SuperSport Park, along with the clouds, the demons on the pitch had gone missing, and South Africa's batsmen capitalised. Jacques Kallis made the fastest of his 38 Test centuries and Hashim Amla pushed his Test average against India this year beyond 600 as the home side ended the day 230 ahead with eight wickets remaining.
