Follow, discuss the India-South Africa second Test in Kolkata

February 15, 2010 09:27 IST

Harbhajan Singh and Zaheer Khan led a strong fightback from India late on Day 1 of the second and final Test against South Africa, at the Eden Gardens, in Kolkata , on Sunday, after Hashim Amla and Alviro Petersen slammed centuries.

Just when it looked as if the tourists would end the day with 300 runs on the board and many wickets in hand, the duo struck telling blows to hand the advantage to India.

When play was called off early due to bad light, South Africa were tottering at 266 for nine in 81 overs, after being well-placed on 228 for 2 at tea.

Intense action is in store when play resumes on Day 2. Can India bounce back and take a sizeable lead? India Abroad's Harish Kotian is at the ground posting updates as they happen. Follow what's the latest from the Test on Harish's MyPage!
