Nervy Day Ahead

January 6, 2010, Newlands
India vs South Africa, Test 3, Day 5
Equation is simple - 90 overs, India need 341 runs to win, South Africa needs 10 wickets. Winner takes the series.
After a phenomenol performance by Jacques Kallis on Day 4, this is the scenario.
Being an Indian fan, hoping for Sehwag to go berserk and get the the victory. Or at worst India holding out for a draw. Being practical and seeing the pitch conditions and the South African bowling attack, a South African victory seems most likely. But when has a sports fan listened to logic.
So its going to be a really nervy day ahead as I wait and watch the scores refreshing every minute. The heart does tend to stop when the page updates.

P.S. Score is 22/0 after 10 overs as I type this. So the Indian victory chances are looking pretty low now.
