india vs sa.jpg1South Africa, Tuesday, December 24 – The thrill what both India and South Africa put in front of the audience during the 5th day of first test match of Sunfoil series is still fresh in mind. Both the top cricket teams left no stone unturned to be an apparent winner during the final overs of the match, which ended as a draw on Sunday, December 22.

With the second game at Kingsmead in Durban from Thursday, December 26, India look ahead to defeat the contender at least this time, to end the year on a positive note. After a draw at The Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg during the weekend, momentum of Indian squad is up since all players pour hundred percent efforts to pocket the victory. Though humiliating drub in three-match ODI series against South Africa was a huge setback for them, but spirits are now higher to beat them in the final & very last match of the series and year 2013.

Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni is optimistic about the forthcoming match as youngsters have literally performed well on the foreign soil despite less experience and expertise over the pitch. Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli shone with terrific batting performances. Besides, bowling line up, which comprises Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma and Zaheer Khan, also showed up commendable jobs. However, India would have to keep an eagle eye over all South African players, for the reason that they are capable to turn up the things in their way with brilliant individual and collective performance(s).

Faf du Plessis has emerged as the biggest threat for the guest, taking the victory from away from the reach of Indian team. All in all, final entertainment is set to begin after a couple of days. Spectators are looking forward to avail maximum fun from the last match of the year between strong competitors i.e., India and South Africa.
