Cricket News sort by India tour of South Africa 2013-14

That India have been having a torrid time ever since stepping out of home comfort would be an understatement.

South Africa crushed India by 10 wickets to win the Durban Test and also the short 2-match Series. The hosts needed just 58 to win after bundling out India for 223 in 86 overs.

The young Indian batting brigade has the challenge of saving an overseas Test on the final day at Kingsmead. The visitors have already lost two wickets after conceding a first innings lead of 166 runs.

Just a little under 16 overs were possible in the final session which saw a predictable end due to bad light and rain. India using quite a lot of spin did exceedingly well to bowl nearly 85 overs on the third day.

As India headed on the plane to South Africa, many were of the opinion that Murali Vijay might not be the right choice to open the innings along with Shikhar Dhawan.

South Africa finished the rain-hit second day’s play on a high at 82 for no loss in 20 overs having bowled out India for a modest 341.

Just the 8 overs were possible in the final session before the Umpires had no choice but to suspend play and then call it off later because of the gloomy overhead conditions at Durban.

Honestly, it was only a matter of time. Jacques Kallis, the most complete cricketer of the modern era, has announced his retirement from the five-day game
