Dravid fails, Kallis still going strong

On a day when a handful of Royal Challengers turned out for their respective national teams, it was Jacques Kallis again who proved the key man to a team's outcome. Kallis remained unbeaten on 32 along with Hashim Amla (44) as South Africa finished Day 3 on a positive note at 139/2 against Pakistan. This was after a dramatic collapse by Pakistan triggered by Mornie Morkel (5/54) and Johan Botha (3/61) taking down the hosts for 248 as Pakistan lost their last 8 wickets in 144 runs. Dale Steyn accounted for a single wicket while Kallis returned wicketless. Kallis however showed his batting resilience while building the target for Pakistan later in the day. Along with Amla, Kallis is still going strong with a 63 run partnership for the third wicket at the end of the day. Marc Boucher failed with the bat on Day 2 however, picked up three catches behind the wicket for the Proteas.

Rahul Dravid missed out on a half century against New Zealand when he failed to read a Tim Southee delivery and was adjudged lbw at 45. Dravid started in his typical way with stoic defense and occasional crisp boundaries. India started day 3 slow, but Harbhajan Singh proved again how he has improved on his batting techniques drastically over the last two Tests as he remained unbeaten on 85 that came from only 82 deliveries. It was Harbhajan along with ever reliant Laxman who rescued India from another batting collapse. Laxman's 74 infront of his home crowd was soothing if not satisfactory, though it was Harbhajan's unfinished partnership of 69 runs for the 10 wicket along with Sreeshanth (14 not out) that took India past the 400 run mark.

Can Harbhajan get to his second consecutive Test ton?

You cannot say like that Dravid played a very good knock of 45 in 144 balls, he playes slowly but steadily that's why he is known as The Great Wall Of Indian Cricket. Test Cricket is played slowly & not fast as a 20 over match.
