Other than Dravid reaching the milestone, it was a struggling day for India on the first day of the Test match against South Africa, as they reach 136/9 in 38.1 overs which were possible on the day. Touted as the clash of the titans between the top two test teams in the world, South Africa however, earned the honors on the first day as they completely bulldozed India on a fast track under moist conditions. With rain ruining more than half of day's play, it was, however, more than enough belittle tall claims of Indian batting. Rahul Dravid (14), Sachin Tendulkar (36), MS Dhoni (33 not out) and Harbhajan SIngh (27) were the only batsmen who could reach double figures on the day for India. Dale Steyn, who started the onslaught for South Africa returning Virender Sehwag for a duck claimed 3/34 along with Mornie Morkel who returned with figures of 4/20. Another Challenger, Jacques Kallis claimed Suresh Raina's wicket.

Hello everyone,
I Strongly believe that Team India are favorites for WC2011.

Experience, Consistency, Fitness is must for a PLAYER to be a PART OF WORLD CUP TEAM.

Sadly, Dravid is not among 30 Probables. I wish to see him driving Team India to grab World Title.

Vote for Dravid at ESPN Poll Vote Here.


Voting should be introduced, to know public opinion on players participating in World Cup. And public voices should be made heard. Because every Indian has right to put his/her views.
