India fights back after Kallis double century

Posted by: AP, Uploaded: 18th December 2010

India was 190-2 in its second innings at stumps on day three of the first test against South Africa on Saturday, still 294 runs behind the home team’s 620-4 declared.

Half-centuries by Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir in a 137-run opening partnership gave India hope of saving the series-opener at SuperSport Park before both were out in the final session. India was bowled out for 136 in its first innings.

Gambhir hit 10 fours in his 80, but fell lbw to Dale Steyn five overs before the end. Sehwag had moved quickly to a 27th test half-century but then lofted a high catch to Graeme Smith to be out for 63.

Jacques Kallis’s 201 not out had helped South Africa to its big first-innings total and a commanding position.
