DaDa wid Bhajji,Dhoni & rest of the "Team India":They done it at last!! :-)

So,the 3rd Test is over within the 3rd day.....and wow,Team India smashed Proteus by 8 wickets to snatch this test match & so drawn the on going 3-test series by 1-1!!

All though Team India played like a perfect 11-men army in this match,which lead by MS Dhoni,two men played the key role in their way to win this test. They are our Dada,Sourav Ganguly & veteran offie Bhajji! As a result,they received the much expected awards of Man of the Match & Man of the Series respectively!:D

* Score Card:
SA : 265 & 121
India: 325 & 64/2
India won by 8 wickets

Between,after loosing the toss,it was sure than Dhoni's team would have to play in the 4th innings in such a spinning(& steadily deteriorating) track!! Thus Dada's brilliant knock of 87(of 119 balls) helped 'em to get a lead which further increased up to 60 odd runs courtesy our smart tail-duo Ishant & Srisanth who'd put valuable 46-run in their last wicket partnership & that(partnership) really made Smith-gang frustrated & set 'em on back foot!

Even today,on the D-3 of this match,Indian bowlers done their job quite superbly(kudos to Dhoni for his smart bowling change!) by restricted SA within paltry 121-run,as a result only 62 runs were needed to win for Team India!
So ,after this winning, the 2nd spot of Test Ranking will remain to Team India for some more time ....that's until their next test series in July against Lanka! :-)))
