2nd Test well poised at Durban

Indian hopes are floating high on veteran VVS Laxman, new comer Pujara and Indian skipper MS Dhoni as the second day of the match also belonged too the bowlers and as many as 18 wickets fell in span of 3 sessions.

After winning the toss South Africa put India to bad and Indians scored humble 205 in their first innings. South Africa already lost 4 wickets before the lunch on day 2 of the second test match and match was well in control of India when SA was all out for just 131 runs in their first innings after the lunch break.

India began well in the second innings also with 44/1 on board at one time but middle order again collapsed and once India were reduced to 56/4 when Steyn took Tendulkar's wicket. After that second innings specialist Laxman and Pujara played well to reach the score of 92/4 in 30.5 overs at the end of the day's play.

Surprisingly enough India today bowled as well as fielded very well and got South Africa all out cheaply. It was the bowlers day as South African bowlers also bowled very well at one stage and reduced Indian's to 56/4 before Laxman and Pujara played well to end the day with a good note and 166 runs in lead.

Hero of the day for India was Zaheer khan who  took two early wickets in the first innings of South Africa and put tremendous pressure by bowling good line and length. Sreesanth also supported him well and later Sharma and Harbhajan also bowled well to reduce South Africa cheaply.

PM ready to face PAC

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is ready to face Parliamentary Accounts Committee (PAC) and wrote a letter to Murli Manohar Joshi, chairman of PAC regarding oppositions demand to form JPC to investigate his role in the 2G spectrum allocation scam involving many politicians, media and corporate lobbyists.

After one week since he made that offer first time last week he wrote to the chairman formally on monday and is ready to face PAC. Murli Manohar Joshi who is not a very big supporter of the recent JPC demand by the opposition has not yet rejected PM's offer.

If the chairman Murli Manohar Joshi accepts the appeal by PM, Manmohan Singh will become the first prime minister in the history of India to appear before this committee. This committee is going to have members from the both the houses of the parliament from ruling party coalition as well as from the opposition parties.

Ms Sushma Swaraj, Leader of the opposition in Lok Sabha wrote in her twitter account “If PAC is no different from JPC, then why is there a provision for a JPC in the rule book?” On the contrary Mr. Joshi said that PAC has no limitation and can inquire about the implementation of the policy.
