It was a tense day at Cape Town as the India vs South Africa third test is moving towards a dramatic outcome. Sachin Tendulkar has successfully slammed his 51st test century against the South Africans and Dale Styen on the other hand claimed five wickets. India were not at all looking positive as the third day began, and the Indian batsmen fell consistently against the proteas bowling attack, except Sachin and Harbhajan Singh.
During the second day’s play the highlight for India were Sachin and Gambhir, but after Gambhir was plucked at 93, no other batsmen from the team stood up to their potential. Later Harbhajan Singh and Sachin created a partnership that saved India from trail.
Harbhajan Singh once again performed well and managed to score 40 odd runs, giving India that 2 runs lead against the South African total. Sachin score 141 runs, and was bowled just before he could stare into his 150, but still his contribution has helped everyone. After South Africa commenced their second innings they are 52/2 and it will really be exciting to see how they perform on day four.
