India strike twice before lunch: South Africa 164/5

February 18, 2010

India struck twice in quick succession just before lunch to leave South Africa struggling at 164 for 5 in the second innings at the lunch break in the second and final cricket Test here at the Eden Gardens Thursday.

First-innings century-maker Hashim Amla was batting on 68 and Jean Paul Duminy was yet to open his account. Overnight batsman Ashwell Prince (23) was dismissed by off-spinner Harbhajan Singh. Leg-spinner Amit Mishra then sent back A. B. de Villiers for nought.

South Africa were dismissed for 296 in the first innings and India replied with 643 for six declared, gaining a 347-run lead.
