The super openers of Indian cricket did well in the tri series, even bettering their own world record for the first wicket. Left-handed Ganguly and right-handed Tendulkar pose a threat to any bowling attack. They smashed 258 runs for the first wicket against Kenya at Paarl. Ganguly and Tendulkar hit two hundreds apiece in the tri-series. The Indian skipper amassed 380 runs at an average of 63.33 to signal that he is back in form. The little master laid all doubts regarding his fitness to rest by scoring 342 runs at an average of 57.00 and made the best score of the tournament, 146 against Kenya at Paarl. The run hunters are in good form and would have forced the Proteas to work out a new strategy for the Test series.
