Match Notes

  • Dravid: 'I thought the boys were fantastic today'

    Irfan Pathan and Rahul Dravid spoke to the press after India comprehensively beat South Africa at Bangalore

  • Pathan stars on day of many turns

    It says much about his talent that on a day when slowness was the operative word, we were left wondering just how good Irfan Pathan is, and how pivotal a role he may play in Indian cricket's future

  • Conditions made it very tough - Smith

    Graeme Smith walked into the press conference with a rueful smile, and preferred to focus on the vagaries of the pitch rather than a vapid batting display

  • Sehwag helps India level series

    A resurgent Indian side made most use of a slow, turning pitch at Bangalore and levelled the five-match series at 1-1 with a hard-fought six-wicket win
