India vs SA

SA finishes with the command on day one of the first test match played at Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium, Jamtha, Nagpur..
South Africa won the toss and elected to bat in the morning but they lost both the openers (Smith and Prince) in a quick succession, Zaheer Khan take both the wickets.

India was in commanding position in the morning but with monumental patience of Amla and Kallis, they lost there rhythm..

Dhoni’s captaincy lacked logic..Soon after lunch, instead of opening with his most successful bowlers — Zaheer Khan and Amit Mishra — he chose to go with part-time off-spinner Virender Sehwag and Ishant Sharma. He was also guilty of spreading the field and letting the runs to flow generously. The two batsmen made the most of it and kept milking the bowlers.

Harbhajan Singh was disappointing with his line and length...He did bother the batsmen occasionally but he was expected to do a lot more than that...Amit Mishra was good though..even he produce some close LBW shouts.

But in the end Kallis (159*) and Amla (115*) dominate by scoring centuries..

Hope for the good in the upcoming days...Dhoni has to be focused on the that we can stop them quickly by putting some strategic pressure..
Lets see...
