Team India have been bowled out for 334 runs by South Africa on Day 2 at the Kingsmead stadium. Fortunes have swung this way and that so far. Steyn's initial burst gave South Africa the momentum early in the day but India staged a recovery through a good stand between Kohli and Rahane. It was later extended by Dhoni and Rahane for a while. The latter got his maiden Test fifty but Steyn came back once again to hasten the end. South Africa were looking a bit flat at that moment but Steyn showed just why he's such a highly rated bowler. The tail was wrapped up in no time and India were restricted to a decent total. The pitch holds no demons and the sun is out as well. South Africa will enjoy batting in these conditions.

111.3 overs: That's OUT!! Morne Morkel has got Mohammed Shami out caught at first slip. Shami slashes hard and gets an outside edge through to Graeme Smith at teh first slip. Mohammed Shami departs after scoring one run off six balls. FINAL NAIL IN THE COFFIN for India!!

TEA: The session was definitely DOMINATED to South Africa. Steyn STUNNED the Indians with a TRIPLE STRIKE, getting Pujara and Vijay caught at the wicket before Rohit Sharma left a straight ball. Virat Kohli was in his ELEMENTS and looked good for another BIG KNOCK. He was well supported by Rahane as the pair STABILIZED the innings. Morkel returned to KNOCK OVER Kohli though and the hosts will be the HAPPIER TEAM going into Tea.

With MS Dhoni(0) and Ajinkya Rahane(23) at the crease, Team India are currently at 271/5 after 95 overs.
