At the end of the 4th day's play SA seem to be holding the upper hand in the duel at Capetown.
The glow on the SA faces must have have dimmed a bit with the fall of Amla at the end-of-days play. But they would be overall excited and anxious to wrap the match tomorrow on a canter.
But the Verdict from Dileep Premachandran in Capetown clearly says it all... India dig their own grave
Whatever happened on the 4th day has been written and debated for many years now in the books of Indian cricket. It is the same old story, that keeps getting repeated like any other Bollywood masala movie storyline.
From the heart of a true-Indian, would luv to see India win and create history tomorrow. But in reality,odds definetely favor SA clinching the match and series.
If India pull out a miracle tomorrow, they will definetely come back home with lots of fanfare. And also prolong careers of some of the so-called stars
And if they loose, the think-tank definetely will have lots of questions to answer and may even see the Aussie mentor pack his bags.
As a bystander and well-wisher of Indian Cricket would like answers for the simple questions
a) Knowing the state of the pitch, why did we not play Harbhajan?
b) Knowing Viru's form, why did they send him as opener in the second innings?
Well, these questions will never be answered or may not be even asked depending on the outcome of the match tomorrow.
And as they say nothing can be said till the last ball is bowled.
