India will bank on their middle-order batsmen to avoid defeat in the Durban Test. Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara, both among runs in this short two-Test series, will start Day 5 with India on 68 for 2 in their second innings, trailing South Africa - 500 all out -- by 98 runs. South Africa will fancy their chance for a win as history shows that 10 wickets have fallen on the last day of a Test at Kingsmead. A South African win will also be a perfect farewell gift to Jacques Kallis.
Robin Peterson, who starred with bat and ball on Sunday, said the Proteas were backing themselves to take the last eight Indian wickets for the win. "We have lost a lot of time in the game but I think there is a result beckoning for us," he said. "The stats show that on day five at Kingsmead 10 wickets normally fall, so hopefully we are on the right side of the result. Monday morning's session will be crucial to see if we can push for the win. Luckily we have two wickets already and hopefully the bowlers will come out firing after a good rest.
