Cricket: Finally a victory for the Indian team. This win came in the 2nd ODI against South Africa and was a big relief to fans all over the country. With the win, India levelled the 5 match series at 1 match apiece. But alas! The joy was short-lived. The team suffered yet another defeat in the 3rd match of the series and their hopes of winning it are now hanging by a string, as they enter a do-or-die situation.
