South Africa frustrates India after Rahane gets another ton

NEW DELHI: South Africa batted slowly Sunday to reach 72-2 after being set an improbable target of 481 by India on the fourth day of the fourth and final test.


Captain Hashim Amla scored 23 not out off 207 deliveries and A.B. de Villiers 11 not out off 91 as South Africa batted for 72 overs.

South Africa, which is playing for pride after conceding a decisive 2-0 lead in the series, needs to bat another full day to secure a draw.

Earlier, Ajinkya Rahane got a century in each innings for India with a 100 not out in the second innings as India declared on 267-5.

His knock of 127 in the first innings had helped gain a 213-run first-innings lead.
