Dates: 26 Decembe 2010 – 30 December 2010
India was expected to have a good series in South Africa but the first test was anything but good as they were put right down to earth from sky high confidence. India will have to play out of their skin to make sure they are labeled as the Home Lions. Their performences in India against Australia, and New Zealand were so good that their was strong believe that they are going to win in South Africa at last but so far things are not looking impressive for them and African’s will be looking to get the No.1 Postion in the test.
India wins the 2nd Test by 87 Runs and level the Series
