South Africa crush India as Kallis bows out
Captain Graeme Smith scored the winning runs as South Africa knocked off a modest 58-run target to beat India by 10 wickets in the second test at Kingsmead and win the two-match series 1-0. The top-ranked nation achieved victory soon after tea on the last day to complete a highly satisfying result against their closest challengers in the world test rankings. “India are always a big challenge and it was always going to be important for us to do well against them,” Smith said at the post match presentation. It was also fitting farewell for South Africa all-rounder Jacques Kallis who made a century in his final test. South Africa were 59 without loss in their second innings after India had been bowled out for 223 earlier in the day, failing to offer much resistance after being precariously placed at 68 for two overnight.
