Time of India vs South Africa 2nd Test match 2010

The second test match against South Africa is going to be a crucial one for the touring team India. Losing the first test match by an innings and 25 runs, Indian cricket team has been put under huge pressure. They should try their best to make their comeback winning the second test match at the Kingsmead, Durban.

No doubt, it is going to be a tough task for Indian cricket team. Their poor performance has raised a question about India’s inability to beat South Africa in their backyard. However, fans around the world are expecting that world number one test cricket team will make tough competition against the opponent in the second test match.

Fans of both teams should want to watch this match live by ball by. To enjoy the match live, they have to know the match start time. It will start at 10:00 South African time and 13:30 Indian Standard Time and 08:00 GMT.

South Africa is always a tough ground for India. They don’t have any good experience in this country. India hasn’t won any test series in South Africa. They won just one test match that came in Johannesburg.

It is the time to see if Mahendra Singh Dhoni and his team can make a record in South Africa. India needs to improve both their batting and bowling line up. Indian batting line up looked woefully out of depth in the first innings and bowling line up was found ineffective.

In the first innings, India was bundled out for 136 with three batsmen were out for a duck. Though they made good start in the second innings they were bowled out for 456 runs.

On the other hand, Indian bowlers could manage to get only four wickets with Harbhajan Singh and Ishant Sharma shared two wickets each. Pace spearhead Zaheer Khan was out of squad due to injury. It is expected that Zaheer Khan will be picked for the second test.
