India vs South Africa 2nd Test - The Ultimate Decider

India vs South Africa 2nd Test 

India vs South Africa 2nd test live streaming in India will again be available on Ten Cricket, Ten Sports and Cricket Country. Cricket fans in India can enjoy live TV telecast of the second test on Ten Cricket and Ten Sports. After a dismal performance in the ODI series, India bounced back hard with a spirited performance in the first test dominating the Test Champions for almost four full days. Last day slipped out of their hands and the match ended in a really close draw!

Experts had various views at the end of first test. Few had to say that India missed a golden opportunity to win a historic test in South Africa whereas few had to appreciate Indian bowling in the end when South Africa seemed to be winning it. Some experts criticised the home team for not trying a win out there! Anyways we already had a result in the first test and it was a draw with full quality cricket.

India used to rank on the top of ICC rankings. They slipped down due to their disappointing performances in England and Australia couple of years ago. Now they have gradually moved up the order to number two just below South Africa. A win against the test champs will boost a new confidence in the Indian test cricket. They are already ranking at the top of ICC ODI rankings.

On the other hand South Africa will be full prepared to clinch a win here as they are playing at home and playing for pride. After an engaging clash in the first test they would be wary of another Indian fight back at Durban. 

India hardly got any chance to get used to the South African conditions. Not to forget they are now also playing in the absence of their great trio Tendulkar, Laxman and Dravid. They don't have the services of dominating Sehwag or Gambhir anymore! They are all relied on their youngsters who could be a bright future for the team.

South Africa would be wary of a statistical fact that it has been six long years they haven't won a match here at Kingsmead, Durban. Last time when India played South Africa here, Harbhajan played a vital role in India's win. Ashwin would draw some sort of inspiration from Harbhajan's performance.

According to a recent news that just sneaked in, Jacques Kallis has decided to retire from test cricket after this Durban Test. That brings an end to another era of one of the greatest test allrounder! This test match would serve another opportunity for Smith and his men to clinch a win and provide an ideal farewell to Kallis.

Another cliffhanger awaits us - another nail biter is round the corner. Enjoy India vs South Africa second test match.
