South Africa's lowest totals against India

December 27, 2010 21:03 IST

Zaheer Khan and Harbhajan Singh brought India back from the dead as they claimed seven wickets between them to bowl out South Africa for a paltry 131 in their first innings, on day two of the second Test in Durban, on Monday.

India were bowled out for 205 in their first innings on a lively wicket at Kingsmead, but Harbhajan (four for 10) and Zaheer (three for 36) scripted a splendid comeback.
