India forced to Follow on by south Africa

India is on the way to loose its number one position and also and first test being played between India and South Africa. Follwing on and also trailing by more than 350 runs India still has to get some extra batting efforts and very god innings as they against Austraila. But unfortunately both batsmen that saved that match for India (Rahul Dravid and VVS Laxman) are not in the team due to injuries.

Chances of such innings are very rares, given India has already lost 2 wickets and all hopes are now on Sachin Tendulkar and other new batsmen to build long partnership. Let see what happens, India will have to work very hards to save this test match India needs to bat 2 full days to save the test and so far they look unable to bat a single day.

India vs South Africa - day 1

South Africa won the toss and selected to bat first. Current score is South Africa 97/2 in 33.4 overs. Zaheer Khan got the initial break ups and picked up two wickets in the opening spell. For spineers pitch is making the ball turn and hope this will help India to restrict South africa somewhere beteween 300 to 370. India's battin line looks little weak with absence of Dravi and Laxman, lets see how other batsmen make use of this.

Good luck India maintain the number one positions in the test rankings.
