Home away from home
All roads lead to Kingsmead on the afternoon of the second ODI. And there is a huge Indian contingent of supporters. Inside the arena, there are Indian flags everywhere. A diary of events by S. Dinakar.
A wake-up call
The Indian selectors and Greg Chappell seem to be trying to change Indian cricket to fit in with their theory of how the game, and in particular one-day cricket, should be played.
Putting a new spin on things
The more one studies spin bowling, the greater the number of its permutations seems to be.

The wicket had taken spin from the very first day and Ashley Mallett took full advantage to run through the Indian batting, picking up his second five-wicket haul in the match. Gulu Ezekiel brings back memories of the final Test of the 1969-70 series between India and Australia in Madras.

After he had announced his retirement, Fabien Barthez was linked with English champions Chelsea, who had suffered a 'keeper injury crisis. The club eventually ruled it out but Barthez's career may not yet be over, writes Andy Hampson.
The more aggressive Rafael Nadal plays, the slightly flatter and deeper he hits, the more effective he becomes on hard court, the less he has to run, the longer possibly his career, writes Rohit Brijnath.
Following her remarkable performance at the 2006 World Junior Championship in Incheon, Saina Nehwal put up another sterling display to win the Indian International in Mumbai. Nandakumar Marar reports.
Thorpe has done enough
Ian Thorpe's decision to retire stems from an understanding that he needn't measure his entire worth based on his swimming alone. There is more to his life than a pool and a stop-watch, writes Nandita Sridhar.
