So South Africa win by 157 runs. India were bowled out for 91 in 29.1 overs, their lowest score against South Africa. South Africa rallied around Jacques Kallis' unbeaten 119 to post 248 for 8, and India never looked in the hunt after Shaun Pollock struck two early blows. From there onwards, Andre Nel and Charl Langeveldt kept the pressure on the Indians and Kallis chipped in with three wickets himself. He's the Man of the Match. India are now 0-1 down as the series moves to Cape Town for the third match on Saturday, November 26.

I hope you've all enjoyed our commentary today. Do join us for Cricinfo's continued coverage of the series on Saturday. From me, Jamie Alter, and Sajan Nair, this is good night.

Kallis to Agarkar, OUT, all over! Fast on a good length outside off stump, pitches and cuts in sharply off the surface, Agarkar stands and drives loosely but plays all over it and loses his off stump, Kallis gets his third and South Africa have won by 157 runs and take a 1-0 lead in the series

  • New performance-based clause to be discussed: BCCI

    India's poor start to their tour of South Africa has prompted the Indian board (BCCI) to consider introducing a performance-based payment system for its cricketers

  • It's a matter of the mind now

    More than anyone else Chappell believes cricket, batting to be a game of the mind. If the Indian batsmen begin to believe they can't, the battle would be hopelessly lost before the game at Cape Town

  • 'I know what we are capable of' - Smith

    Graeme Smith and Jacques Kallis talk to the press after their crushing win over India in the second ODI

  • Ability and character will be tested - Dravid

    Rahul Dravid was a downcast man after the embarrassing 157-run defeat atKingsmead, admitting that his team just wasn't good enough in the face ofsome hostile and accurate fast bowling from South Africa's quintet

  • That horrible sinking feeling

    South Africa aren't ranked second to Australia for nothing, and it's worthremembering that they beat the world's best 3-2 last March. But even theycan't have expected it to be so easy
