Dale Steyn warns India of more aggressive bowling in Durban

Ahead of the second ODI, Steyn spoke of South Africa's ability to rattle the Indian batsman like they did in the 1st ODI. Steyn went on to say that the likes of Yuvraj Singh and Suresh Raina didn't look like they wanted to come out to bat.

South African pacer Dale Steyn has warned the Indian team to "expect more aggressive bowling" in the second ODI in Durban on Sunday, saying that the visiting batsmen might end up "frightened" by their pace attack. Fresh from stunning the visitors in the first match at Johannesburg, the fast bowler suggested that his team will not be letting up on their intensity and will be looking to seal the series.

"In India the ball doesn't get higher than the stumps. This is not Mumbai. Here, they cannot score easily in different areas and it is going to be hard to play here. And there is more of that coming on Sunday. "Hopefully we can have a similar performance (as in Johannesburg) as we did the other night, and we should be able to come through with a victory. It is a massive game for us, we have the chance to seal the series here and we would like to do so," said Steyn. (Preview: Do-or-die situation for India at Durban)

In the first ODI, Indian bowlers were clueless on a fast and bouncy wicket, as they conceded 358 runs to the Proteas. Thereafter, the Indian batsmen were clueless against the mighty pace of Steyn and company. In fact, it came as a disappointment to the hosts that they weren't challenged more by the number one side.
