After stealing a 41-run lead, and with two days more in the bank, India captain Rahul Dravid is hopeful and confident of forcing a win in the third and final Test here. "It's going to be a battle of attrition from here," he said shortly after close of play on the third day. "I think we have our noses ahead and I am more than happy that we will be bowling in the fourth innings," he added. "The wicket has started breaking up and although it's turning slowly we have Anil (Kumble). The way our part-time bowlers Viru and Sachin have bowled is also heartening. We can surely put some pressure on South Africa.
