India at 93-3 against South Africa in second test

India reached 93 for three wickets at tea Wednesday in reply to South Africa's first innings total of 328 all out on day two of the second of three tests.
India leads the series 1-0 after winning the first test by 123 runs.
Andre Nel struck in his first over to remove Indian opener Virender Sehwag without scoring, and then trapped Rahul Dravid leg before wicket for 11 soon after lunch at the Kingsmead Stadium.
Wasim Jaffer was out for 26 after edging a ball from Makhaya Ntini to A.B. de Villiers at second slip.
South Africa almost claimed an important wicket when captain Graeme Smith dropped Sachin Tendulkar at first slip off Andrew Hall.
By tea, Tendulkar was not out 37, and V.V.S. Laxman undefeated on 9.
Earlier, South Africa's Ashwell Prince hit 121, reaching his fifth test century off 188 balls with 14 boundaries.
Prince was caught high by Laxman at second slip after edging a wide ball from Sree Sreesanth.
Morne Morkel hit three fours in his undefeated 31 and had a 32-run partnership for the last wicket with Ntini, who scored 16.
Sreesanth was the best of India's bowlers with 4-109, but Anil Kumble's 3-62 kept the South Africans from scoring more.
