India level series against Proteas
Thursday 30 December 2010
Mahendra Singh Dhoni hailed the upward curve that Indian cricket continues to follow after they squared their three-match Test series at 1-1 with an 87-run victory over South Africa at Kingsmead.
The world No 1 side needed only 45.3 overs on the fourth day to claim the remaining seven wickets for victory – amongst them the highly valuable ones of Jacques Kallis (17) and AB de Villiers (33), who both departed early.
Zaheer Khan claimed three of the wickets that fell, while there was one each for Sreesanth, Harbhajan Singh and Ishant Sharma as India recorded only their second win on South African soil in 14 attempts.
India's captain Dhoni said: "What this means is that we have a good side. We've played consistent cricket over a period of time. It's a proud moment, 2010 has been good for us."
