India vs South Africa is expected to be an interesting match as both are strong teams and one of the most powerful of ICC Cricket World Cup 2015. Both the teams has won their first match and in confidence for the match on 22nd February in Melbourne.

India vs South Africa Match Prediction is thus tough to make as both the teams are equally strong.Many factors will be responsible for the result of the match.Looking at the pitch,it is favourable for bowling and South Africa has got great bowlers like Dale Stein,Morne Morkel etc. India has got some decent bowlers with Ashwin,Yadav and Shammi. Shammi was the leading wicket taker last year. However Indian bowlers lack experience as compared to South African bowlers.

Sachin, who had praised Virat Kohli for his match-winning tendencies, also warned India of being over-dependent on the star batsman and singled out Ajinkya Rahane as an underrated talent. Commentating on the bowlers, Tendulkar said that Mohammed Shami and company should take individual responsibility and rely on momentum.




Virender Sehwag’s unbeaten 284 helped India post 443 for one

Mumbai: Virender Sehwag’s unbeaten 284 (239b, 40×4, 7×6) helped India post 443 for one in 79 overs on the second day of the final Test against Sri Lanka at the Brabourne Stadium on Thursday (Dec 03,2009). Sehwag figured in a 221-run opening partnership with M. Vijay, who scored 87 Rahul Dravid (62 batting) and the pair added 222 runs in 39.5 overs for the second wicket before stumps. (121b, 10×4, 1×6) before being trapped in front by slow left-armer Rangana Herath.After Vijay’s dismissal, Sehwag was joined by

This was India’s highest single-day score in Tests. Sehwag is now 16 runs short of becoming the first cricketer to score three triple centuries in Tests. Australia’s Don Bradman and West Indies’ Brian Lara have also two scores in excess of 300 each.

Sehwag reached his 100 from 101 balls with a swept boundary off Muttiah Muralitharan. His double hundred, scored off 168 balls, was the second-fastest double century in Test cricket, behind Nathan Astle’s 153-ball effort against England in 2001-02.Sehwag now has six scores above 200, an Indian record.

Mathews, whose 99 was one of the highlights of the Sri Lankan innings, conceded he had not seen anything like this before. “It never happened to Murali before. We all know he’s Sehwag. On his day he can do what he did to us today. He bats that way. The bowlers have to be careful with line and length, a little error would be dangerous,” Mathews said.

“Murali is a big challenge to face. If you have to play against a spinner like him, you have to attack him. Otherwise he will come and dominate you. So instead of allowing him to dominate, I dominated right from the first ball and pushed him into the back foot,” Sehwag said of the off-spinner.

Meanwhile, his opening partner Murali Vijay rued missing a century. “I was very positive and was hitting the ball today. But that was a poor dismissal and maybe I would not make the mistake in my next match,” said the youngster.
