India defeat SA to square series

2010-12-29 13:21

India dismissed South Africa for 215 in their second innings after lunch today to win the second Test at Sahara Stadium Kingsmead in Durban by 87 runs and square the series.

Needing 303 to win the match and clinch the three- Test series, the Proteas resumed the fourth day on 111-3 but Zaheer Khan, Shanthakumaran Sreesanth, Ishant Sharma and Harbhajan Singh all chipped in to leave them in desperate trouble.

The victory was sealed when Cheteshwar Pujara ran out Lonwabo Tsotsobe with a fine bit of reflex fielding.

Sreesanth claimed the key wicket of Jacques Kallis for 17 in the eighth over of the day with an inspired delivery that reared up off a good length, as the Proteas’ leading run-scorer could only fend the ball off his gloves into the gully region.
