Kolkata, Oct 6 (IANS) The South African and Indian cricket teams landed in the city on Tuesday for the third Twenty20 International outing at the Eden Gardens here on October 8.

Ringed by a heavy cordon of security personnel, the two sides flew into the Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport at around 1.50 pm and were driven straight to a posh five star hotel.

South Africa have already taken an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series. The visitors would seek to keep up the winning momentum and make it a clean sweep ahead of the five-game ODI and four-match Test series.


On the other hand, the Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led Indian outfit will try to salvage some pride in the dead rubber and raise their confidence level for the coming engagements.

    The IANS was founded by Indian American publisher Gopal Raju as the India Abroad News Service. It was later renamed the Indo-Asian News Service.
