    Day 2 round-up: Durban was dark and gloomy on Friday morning, but by the end of the day, the home fans returned having witnessed a fine spell of fast bowling from Dale Steyn that saw India's first innings folding up for 334, adding just 153 for the loss of nine wickets on a rain-shortened day.

    South Africa won both the sessions on Friday after rain washed out first two hours of play. But excellent drainage at Kingsmead ensured play started immediately after an early lunch, and the sun was kind enough to let it continue well past the scheduled close.

    India lost 90 for 4 in the post lunch session and then 5 for 63 in the last session to allow South Africa make a comeback after watching India reach a solid 181 for 1 at stumps on Thursday.
